Why Choose WVC?



Located in the beautiful and safe City of Wenatchee

Our campus is located in the city of Wenatchee, the home of premium wines and world famous apples. Named as the fifth greenest city in America (Country magazine, 2007), as the safest metro area in Washington state (2007), and as one of top 50 best places to live + play (National Geographic Adventure, 2007). Wenatchee gets 300 days of sunshine a year and offers year-round opportunities for enjoying the outdoors.


Supportive Environment

WVC offers excellent student services from the time students first inquire about studying here until they complete their studies. We have an international student coordinator and adviser who speaks Japanese, educational planners, career advisers, supportive teachers and tutors who are here to help you succeed. WVC finds a supporting family off campus for each international student. Many international students choose to live in the very convenient residence hall, located just across the street from campus.

Events and activities

Through the academic year, WVC Student Programs offer a variety of events, which are free to WVC students: magic shows, color runs, groups hikes, musical performances and dance groups, just to name a few. There are more than 20 clubs and intercollegiate athletic teams in soccer, basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball. WVC's intramural activities include fan bus trips to Mariners baseball games, Seattle Seahawks football games and more! 

WVC plans activities and events to help make your experience in the United States and at WVC memorable.
