其他資料
Bellevue College(貝爾維大學)的所在地區是一個治安十分良好的社區。貝爾維區是個蠻美的城市,翠綠的森林配上大面積的湖泊,讓它的空氣十分清新。Seattle的市區也十分乾淨,公車都採用電力方式發動,十分環保。當地有世界知名度假村的滑雪場、百老匯歌舞劇、以及美國熱門球隊的棒球賽、籃球賽、曲棍球賽等。

華盛頓州的貝爾維市是一個多元文化的城市,平均四位居民中就有一位是在美國之外的地區出生,由於多元文化的背景,貝爾維社區大學非常歡迎國際學生。它也是一個非常注重環保的整潔都市,非常適合居住。

貝爾維市位距離西雅圖市不遠,乘坐公共交通工具就可以輕鬆前往遊玩。貝爾維市內也有許多優美的市區公園,在湖邊有很長的步道,供人們散步和騎自行車。市區也鄰近卡斯卡德山(cascade);所以在貝爾維市不論生活、娛樂、或者戶外活動,都非常方便,能享受多彩多姿的生活。

你也可以往西北方探索,一定能發現這裡有各種豐富的文、體育、及戶外的活動可參與!在西雅圖和貝爾維市的周圍地區,可深入發掘這裡的歷史和文化背景,並參與許多藝術活動,如參觀博物館、藝術館、科學館及音樂博物館!還有動物園、水族館、交響樂園演奏。

西雅圖也是很多體育活動的重點城市。像Seattle Mariners棒球隊、Seattle Supersonics籃球隊、Seattle Seahawks足球隊,這些球隊的比賽都吸大批球迷,在球場大聲加油及尖叫,造成一股熱鬧歡樂的風潮。卡斯卡德山和奧林匹克山區是戶外活動的好地點,可以騎自行車和健行;在華盛頓湖釣魚、划船。

距離貝爾維和西雅圖幾小時車程的地區,便到達華盛頓州西部的茂密的雨林區和壯觀的太平洋岸;往東則有華盛頓州的酒莊和生機蓬勃的麥田和果園。到西雅圖北方還可搭乘渡輪環遊群島,到加拿大的溫哥華及花園城市維多利亞距離也不遠。

The Job Sheet (Bellevue College Student Newspaper)

Post Published: 14 April 2009. Author: Brittany Butterfield. Found in section: News
 
As of April 13 the college name became effective publicly as Bellevue College, with the introduction of the new logo.

The kick-off began with a meeting where Jean Floten, president of the college, spoke about what the desires and accomplishments of the college are as of now, as well as handing out t-shirts and “gimmies” supporting the new logo.

The college first notified the state last November, which were followed by hearings to gather public comments, held on February 11, and the College Board of Trustees approved the name change March 11.

“Because many people associate ‘community college’ with associate degrees only, we want our first baccalaureate graduates to have Bellevue College on their diplomas,” said Floten.

The college launched its Bachelor of Applied Science in Radiation and Imaging Sciences program in Fall 2007. Hoping to resolve the increasing problem of students having complications not receiving baccalaureate-level educational programs in that field came noticeable from studies and discussions with local healthcare leaders.

“At some point we hope to be able to offer bachelor’s degrees in additional fields.” Floten said. “ The widening gap between the space available in baccalaureate programs, on the one hand, and the needs of the state residents and employers on the other, harms our economy and the quality of life in our community.”

The name change is independent of the bills intorduced in the Washington State Legislature  to allow the college to award additional bachelor’s degrees.

Bellevue College will remain part of the state community and technical college system and will continue to fulfill its community college mission, which is to provide an open door to higher education to all who are eligible.
