    Apply early and try new things. There is so much to do if you open yourself to it.

    This is a college for hipsters, hikers, and people who generally love the outdoors. Bellingham is a very pretty city! The school is on the smaller size of a large university. Classes have anywhere from 20-150 students in them. After you complete the GURs, your classes level out to 20-50 students. My advice to you is balance work and play! I definitely worked harder than I played and did not explore all that Bellingham had to offer. One bonus tip for studying is to check out the Harry Potter room on the fourth floor of the library! Only a few students actually go there and it is a silent study room.

    One thing that Western requires of you as a student as does most colleges, is some independence. Western is a school that contains all of the most important and vital resources, but the student must train themselves to utilize these resources and their independence in the most effective equilibirium to help them become successfull. This may sound like a bit of a struggle, but once you have figured out how to perform this task successfully, you feel your mind growing and creating synapses that you had no idea existed.

    BRING A RAIN JACKET! Bellingham and the northwest in general are very much known for the inconsistent rain and wind. Also, since Western is so academically focused, it may be easy to fall behind so put studying as a major priority to maintain good grades!
