On your team

Welcome to fall quarter at Cascadia

Whether you’re here to earn a two-year degree, a four-year degree, a technical degree, or have some other academic
pursuit, one of the most important things you can do is to
build your support team. Below we've highlighted some
of your fundamental resources!

Some of the Kodiak Team:

Kodiak Corner - an essential part of your team!

This is the place you go to buy a parking pass, to add or drop classes, to get academic advising or reasonable accommodations, with financial aid questions or to connect to counseling services. When you walk through those double wooden doors you’ll be met by
a welcoming and hard-working crew ready to help you succeed at Cascadia. 

 If you can’t get to Kodiak Corner in person, you’ll find most of the same services can
be accessed online in the Student Toolbox.

Get to Know Mo!

 

Hi! I’m the vibrant trailer parked next to the Food Forest. My full name is Cascadia’s Mobile Laboratory, but my friends call me Mo. I’ve had many adventures in the past couple of years, and can’t wait for yours. Whether
we stay on campus, or journey into the surrounding communities, no experience
is too big or small. So, where will you go with Mo?
