I have a lot of respect for Salish Kootenai College, and have attended it for almost two years now. It is worth the commute from the Bitterroot Valley (a total of 4 hours to and from campus). The organic connection and culture at SKC keep me coming back. My advisor , Carol Baldwin (Psychology department) has been patient while I have tried to figure out my path. I have grown and healed as a person at SKC, and I am proud to have met some inspiring leaders, teachers, and fellow students. And, parking is never a problem here!

Easy to get to, parking isn't an issue. But, getting around campus requires some planning. SKC is one only 6 tribal college in the US to offer four year degrees.
