Fall is edging in! Daylight hours are getting shorter, and there is a crispness to the air sneaking in. Here on campus, the trees will soon begin to change color. It's a spectacular sight. 

As the cooler weather sets in and outdoor activities begin to wind down it’s a great time to explore classes that will keep you engaged, especially during the rainy months! Why not learn how to make handmade chocolates or learn Italian? Perhaps you’ve been wanting to learn ways to grow personally or professionally, why not try learning how to build a website or create a documentary film. With so many great classes being offered this quarter it’s hard to just pick one! We’ve included some class suggestions below, click the title to be taken to the class page for more details and to register. 

Our staff is here to answer any questions you have about upcoming classes. CE business hours are Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 5:00pm. We can be reached at or by phone at (206) 934-3705. So, take a stroll of the campus foliage and stop by our office to say “Hi👋”! We look forward to seeing you.

Campus Security is testing a new system that will be rolled out soon.  In the meantime, we are continuing our temporary practices regarding parking charges.  No citations will be issued until North faculty, staff and students have received proper notification and enough time has been allowed for enrolling in the new system.  Parking is still free on Saturday.

Masks and Face Coverings

Masks will continue to be required in some instances, including but not limited to: 

  • Clinical and other health-care settings and educational programs (dental hygiene, respiratory care, nursing, EMT, NA-C, etc.) 

  • For those who test positive and are returning to campus after isolation at home. 

  • For those who have been exposed to someone with COVID.
