Whatcom Community College celebrates 50th anniversary
Whatcom Community College in Bellingham, Wash., will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2017. What began as a “college without walls” is now regarded as one of the nation’s top two-year colleges (Aspen Institute). We will honor the positive impact Whatcom has had in our community and in the lives of our graduates at events throughout the year.

- History display and community event at Whatcom Museum and on campus (proposed)
- Educational films at Pickford Film Center (proposed)
- Participation in community events
- Community service activities
