Ting-Yi Chiang, a student from Taiwan, shared her experience at Bellevue College and why she chose to stay in the United States after the COVID pandemic was reaching its peak. 

Bellevue College originally offered only two-year associate degree programs.   Gradually, it has developed into a 4-year college with several 4-year degree disciplines. It is the third-largest institution of higher learning in Washington state with more than 30,000 students.

The school is located within the city limits of Bellevue.  From the school’s main campus, it takes about 10-minute driving to downtown Bellevue and 15 minutes to Seattle.
