Edmonds College, CWU-Lynnwood celebrate inaugural First-Generation College Student Week

Edmonds College President Dr. Amit B. Singh and CWU-Lynnwood Regional Director Shane Reeder signed a declaration dedicating the first week of November each year as First-Generation College Student Week.

The declaration acknowledges students who are the first members of their immediate family to embark on a college journey and the path to being a college graduate. Efforts were led by Edmonds College TRIO Support Services, which is a federally-funded program that provides low-income, first-generation college students and students with disabilities valuable support and services to assist in student success and persistence toward graduation.

First cohort of Bachelor of Applied Science students graduate

Thirteen graduates will now hold Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degrees in Child, Youth, and Family Studies.

This is Edmonds College's first BAS degree and is unique in its interdisciplinary model with emphasis on family systems, equity, and social justice. It integrates Early Childhood Education and Social and Human Services and was designed for working adults.

New STEM building and residence hall opening in 2020

Edmonds College is growing! In 2020, we’ll be opening a new Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) building and a second residence hall to meet the needs of our growing campus.

The 70,000-square-foot SET building will be a regional hub for those who want to pursue STEM degrees and will house allied health and nursing, physics, chemistry, engineering, and math classrooms, as well as labs and offices.

Triton Court residence hall will be a multi-story, mixed-use building located on the corner of 68th Ave. W and 200th St. SW at the college's main entrance. It will include close to 200 student beds with combinations of single- and multi-bed room styles. It will also be a campus destination for dining and more.
