    CWU is a pleasant surprise in a small town. It's a beautiful campus with quality classes and professors. Aside from the wind, it's an awesome school.

    Central Washington University is a great small university that is recognized for their Teaching, Music, Theater, Aviation, Accounting and College of business Programs. Central is located only two hours away from the big city of Seattle offering a great weekend trip home or a weekend trip to the city. Ellensburg is a great small town with lots of festivals and cute downtown filled with stores.

    The weather is a little crazy because its always windy and in the winter its extremely cold with snow. The summers are hot and nice with the Yakima river right near by the float down. The academics are great you will learn a lot.

    I love Central Washington University. I am in the Music Program there, and it is absolutely amazing. I am looking for scholarships because i know that the Music program will take me at least five years to complete my bachelors degree.

    If I were to sum up CWU in three words I would say they are flexible, effective, and affordable. These days flexibility and affordability are major needs for students from various backgrounds.
