Says students hurt by BTC strike

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDSeptember 29, 2013 

I moved here last December and decided I want to further my education and I picked Bellingham Technical College and after I got my Pell Grant approved I was looking forward to an education and on Tuesday I was ready and excited and then I got a email from BTC that the faculty was on strike. Now I'm in a situation, my rent is due, I have no idea what's going to happen. I may need to withdraw and seek a low-paying job. I'm upset that both sides are forgetting about us, the students, and I understand; but it's about education and we the students are in the middle. I have no idea at this point what to do. Thanks BTC faculty and BTC administration.
