Most Helpful Review for Western Washington University

WWU’s faculty can be characterized as innovative, challenging, and accommodating. Most every classroom is equipped with the technology to allow for multi-media presentations, so you will never have a talking head professor. The professors try to cater to every type of learner through these different mediums and apply what you learn to the real world. For me, this type of instruction included completing a project that will be used by Western faculty and affect the way they teach. You will never go hungry for knowledge with the fast paced and interactive classroom environment. Speaking up and speaking out in class...

    On a scale of one to ten I would rate Western Washington University a 8. The reason that this rating is a 8 and not 10, is because no college is absolutley perfect. As I have sat back and observed this college there are some minor changes I would make if I was in charge.

    I absolutely love love love this school and campus. I've visited and stayed in their dorms two times both for over a week and everyone I met was very friendly. I love the wide ranges of their fields of study, I strongly suggest visiting this campus if you have time.

    Western Washington University is a very academically focused campus. The professors and students are very focused and knowledgeable about the subjects they teach and/or learn. The beautiful campus and small Bellingham community makes running into friends and acquaintances very easy.

    Clean and friendly. Western always has events for new students to make new friends and connections. Western is very active in things such as recycling, social justice, and current events.

    Western is a very welcoming place. The atmosphere is wonderful and the scenery is beautiful. It is a great place to grow as a student and as a person.

    I love the location for a lot of reasons (downtown is awesome, surrounding nature is awesome), but I hate the weather. The best thing about the service Western has provided me with so far is that the administrators and staff are all reliable and compassionate. In a nutshell my biggest complaint is that the school is so big.

    WWU has a very active student body with many events happening on-campus and off-campus. The living on campus is fair while the dining is okay. Cost of schooling is moderate compared to many other 4-year schools.

    Classes are very interesting and really expand your horizons. The housing department is horrible and causes a lot of problems for anyone who deals with them. Some of the people there are bizarre, but most everyone is very accepting.

    I believe that Western has no more diversity to offer. Western has brilliant professors, however, they leave due to low pay. In my experience, Western Washington University has become more involved in profit, instead of education.
