Walla Walla Community College

Local high school students will have a unique opportunity this Wednesday, Nov. 8, to explore paths to a bachelor’s degree at Walla Walla Community College. At the Destination Bachelor’s Degree event, they’ll learn about WWCC’s transfer and bachelor’s degree options and hear from some of the Northwest’s best colleges.

WWCC staff and faculty will introduce students to transfer degree options in the arts, humanities and sciences — as well as the Bachelor of Applied Science degrees in Agricultural Systems and Business Management now available at WWCC. They’ll also share information about resources like TRiO and Warrior Pledge that can put a bachelor’s degree within reach for many students.

Representatives from Columbia Basin College, Eastern Washington University, Lewis-Clark State College, and Washington State University will also be on campus to talk about transfer options in programs like Agriculture and Natural Resources, Early Childhood Education, Nursing, and more. And a representative from Whitman College will be on hand to discuss the Gateway Program, which encourages WWCC students from low-income, first-generation or other diverse backgrounds to pursue a liberal arts education at Whitman.

Students will have the chance to tour some of the highlights of WWCC’s campus, including the Water & Environmental Center’s working gardens and the Parent & Child Center.

They can also enter to win a $500 WWCC Foundation Scholarship, and the winner will be announced at the end of the event.

Destination Bachelor’s Degree will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., starting in the Dietrich Dome. Members of the media are welcome to attend.
