I'm excited to be through my first year [at Huxley College of the Environment on the Peninsulas]! I'm so glad I found out about Huxley on the Peninsulas. If not for you, I wouldn't be halfway to a degree that I feel more passionate about the more I learn in these classes.
-Hank Hayden, BA Environmental Policy Student
In the two years I attended Huxley I received an education beyond my expectations. I attended at the Everett University Center with classes via teleconferencing with the Poulsbo and Port Angeles Campuses. These classes gave each group the opportunity to not only experience a different perspective of students from sister campuses, but the smaller class size allowed for a close knit learning community that helped build relationships between students and their teachers that I believe will be long lasting far beyond graduation.
The courses offered in the Environmental Policy and Planning program were challenging, informative, and provided real world experience that I carried into my internship and will carry into my future career. The main reason these classes were so successful was due to the quality of the instructors. The educators teaching the courses were bar none the best professors I have ever had the privilege to know. Many of the instructors have worked in the public or private sector and bring a fresh and practical approach to the subject matter.
I enjoyed my time with Huxley and feel that graduating from this college is bitter-sweet. I know that the time spent at Western/Huxley has prepared me for the future in my career, but I will miss the friends I have gained. When asked if I had to do it again, choosing Huxley as my college home, I would gladly and immediately say YES!

She completed her internship with the Snohomish Parks and Recreation Dept., where she created the first ADA checklist for parks, since the regulations have been revised. The Snohomish Parks Dept. would like her to submit her report nationally. Very exciting! Nancy Bluestein-Johnson, Program Manager)
Hi Nancy, I just got a formal job offer today from King County for an environmental scientist position. I am so excited. My Huxley education was well respected and I am very glad that I received an education from this program. Just thought you would like to know that this program can definitely lead to a good job even in this less than ideal economic times!
Thanks for all your help,
Chris Knutson, Spring 2010 graduate
I have worked in the environmental policy field for several years. I wanted to finish my degree in Environmental Planning and Policy, but working full time made it nearly impossible. The WWU Extended Education program, offering an evening/weekend schedule in Kitsap County, really drew me to the program. This program allows people with full time jobs to finish their education. I recommend it to everyone I know.
