The campus has expanded with the development of a workforce education building that houses winery and vineyard technology and allied health programs, thus offering more learning opportunities to students at the Grandview Campus. Courses are also available that apply to various vocational and transferable degrees on the Yakima campus in areas such as agriculture, early childhood education, elementary education, allied health, business, criminal justice, and natural science.
To facilitate the learning of students, the Grandview Campus offers a complete array of student services including advising, financial aid, admission, registration, cashiering, disability support, bookstore, food service, and placement services. The campus is also equipped with an open-access computer lab for students, textual reference materials, online research databases, and tutoring centers.
Yakima has been the cultural, business, educational, health services, and governmental focal point of the Central Washington region since it was founded more than 125 years ago. Originally built along the new Northern Pacific Railway company line, Yakima has grown from its agricultural roots to become a vibrant, diverse metropolitan city. With a rich history and a bright future, Yakima is the Heart of Central Washington.
Nobody really knows for sure how Yakima got its name. Of the many theories about the origins of the city’s name, one of the more popular is based on a legend about an Indian chief’s daughter who fled from her home after she broke tribal rules. The chief’s daughter made her home along the river named Yakama. The current City of Yakima is said to be located near the site where the chief’s daughter settled.
One thing that is unique about our community college is that we have on campus housing. The Student Residence Center and International Student Program are located in the same office.
