Whatcom Celebrates Orca Day

Orca day at Whatcom Community College seemed to be a hit on Wednesday June 8.  Many classes were canceled in order for students to participate in the celebrations.  Here’s what some students had to say about Orca day, along with an assortment of pictures…

Roxy Mymrin: “I wish it was a little sunnier!”
