Dear North Seattle College Community,

This year, we honor 50 Years of Changing Lives Through Education at North Seattle College. Over the past 50 years, North has impacted the lives of thousands of students, as well as employees. The history of the land that we occupy, the stories of the lives that have been changed, and the hope that is found in education provides a deep connection for our community. Today, we are excited to share a glimpse of our history and stories with you through the 50th Anniversary website. We hope this site honors the history of North Seattle College and gives you an opportunity to share your memories about North.

Learn more, share your memories, and give to student scholarships:
