Thank you to Whatcom Events for offering a one-time ride at the 2017 Tour de Whatcom and to the many riders who joined the 'WCC 50th Legacy Ride'. The 50 mile route honored WCC’s 50th anniversary by linking several of the College’s early county locations.

We welcomed two lively groups to campus this summer. The first came to a Pottery Party, spending a pleasant afternoon in July at Roe Studio, under the expert tutelage of Art Instructor Rob Beishline. Guests learned pottery basics and each produced a platter to take home.

A few weeks later, we hosted our second annual Chautauqua, a day of four mini-classes taught by some of our most creative and far-thinking faculty.
