Olympic College is an urban based, but rural and urban serving, Washington, 2-year public institution. Olympic College consists of three campuses and serves Kitsap and Mason counties in Washington. The College’s service area contains five major naval installations: the Naval Undersea Warfare Center at Keyport, Trident Submarine Base at Bangor, and three bases in Bremerton: Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, the Naval Supply Center Puget Sound, and the Naval Regional Medical Center. The college’s main campus is located in Bremerton, Washington, and its two satellite campuses are located in Poulsbo and Shelton, Washington. The Poulsbo campus is 30 miles from the main campus, while the Shelton campus is located 60 miles from the main campus. These three campuses serve the 281,374 residents of Kitsap and Mason counties of Washington spread over 1617 square miles of wooded and lowland mountain terrain (Census 2000). In spite of being a mere seven air miles from downtown Seattle with its diversion metropolitan population, Kitsap and Mason counties’ populations are predominantly white (84% Kitsap and 89% Mason), mostly between the ages of 25-54 (41% Kitsap and 45% Mason), and slightly more male (51% Kitsap and 52% Mason). From this service population base, Olympic College’s student body demographically by largest represented groups are predominantly full time (59%), between the ages of 20-29 (37.7%), female (56%) and white (73%). The school motto is, "Cogita, Aspira, Aude, Perade (Think, Aspire, Dare, Achieve)." Olympic College has attracted dignitaries and well-known performers during its history. Harry S. Truman, the 33rd President of the United States, visited Bremerton and Olympic College (formerly Olympic Junior College) in 1948. He received the first honorary degree from the college that year. Dizzy Gillespie, world-renowned jazz trumpeter, and country singing legend Tammy Wynette also performed at the college.
