Opening Week


Each academic year at Whatcom Community College kicks off with Opening Week. The days leading up to the new school year are a perfect time for the campus to come together to learn about important College updates, celebrate service awards, hold an orientation for new faculty and staff, participate in professional development workshops, and catch up with your Whatcom peers at the annual Combined Fund Drive luncheon.

Below is information about this year's Opening Week and Opening Day activities.
