Fall 2019 issue of the Community Report available

The Community Report is a twice-yearly College publication mailed to neighbors and businesses in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. Our fall issue just mailed out and we wanted to be sure employees had a chance to view it too. Hard copies are also available in the PUB, FOSS, and the Administration building. The stories featured in this publication are also on the Shoreline News Blog that was revamped this past summer.

If you think you have a newsworthy story to share with the world, Communications & Marketing wants to hear from you!

Contact Rachel Evans ( or x. 4501) to share your news or story idea for consideration in an upcoming article. We’d love to hear about student successes, innovative class projects, staff or faculty achievements, newsworthy initiatives, community partnerships, and more.
