    It really is the college experience. Your residence hall is literally its own community. On campus life is the place to be, I doubt that anyone could ever feel closer connected with their community. The sunsets are amazing ! Also, many on campus jobs will gain you the exact experience you need for hard to get jobs later in life. We are pretty self sufficient as a campus, and there is always a resource for your need out here!

    Pretty good. About $6,000 for tuition if you're from Washington, plus around $1000 for textbooks (I'm not kidding, about $1000) and the education seems pretty good. The recreation trips are really low cost and there is a free WSU carpool for the trips. (I went on one that was rafting with two nights overnight at a lodge and it only cost $35.) Bowling night is free.
