What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
Its important to keep a solid gpa and sat/act score. While the university isn't know for being extremely selective, they are becoming much more strict as the cost of college continues to rise. A variety of extracurricular activities is import on your application. All these things will help lead to your acceptance into the university and any scholarships that you might receive. Keep in mind that college life is different from high school, and not for everyone. Academics are notably different from high school, and you will learn to discipline yourself to study often and perform better on exams. Many of your grades will be based off of just your exam scores Make sure that you visit the campus if possible, it can give you an accurate feel of the school and what things may be like for you.
Austin from Vancouver, WA
It takes a lot of courage to make new friends and become part of new hobbies, but it's worth it. You will find amazing people who will be there for you no matter what.
Isabella from Hoquiam, WA
DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Unless you are costing by in the Honors College at WSU, homework and attendance has never been more important. Remember that single kid your senior year? The one with the perfect attendance record? You want to be that kid in college. Sure, that kid in high school might have been crazy to attend everyday regardless you weren't paying as much as you do now. High School, even if you went to private costs incredibly more than any high school and for that reason you should GO to class. Every time you skip you cost your parents $500. Oh, and Sally Sidewalk rules for girls and boys. MIP's are easy to get in a small town. At WSU you feel as if it's another world, one without consequences and even as a freshman I have seen other kids get MIPs in the first week. Don't be stupid, just be smart.
Alexandria from Gig Harbor, WA
One thing I can say to any prospective students more than anything is that home work is a major component in being a student at WSU. you must be willing to work for a grade! very few professors will allow you to skate by on good test grades alone.
The other thing is that in order to get the full WSU experience you must be willing to examine all your options, anyone can sit in a dorm room and play video games in their spare time but with all the extracurriculars WSU offers its virtually impossible to not find a group you wont fit in with, but you must be willing to look. Believe me, its worth the effort.
John from Clarkston, WA
Keep those grades up, it's getting competitive! :)
Laurel from Conifer, CO
Stay on top of things if you decide to go here. Like any school, you can get caught up in the strangest things. This town is one of the safest places I've ever been to. Girls have their own Women's Transit and the Pullman Transit Bus lines are operational until 3am. Use your resources and find others to make you successful person.
Sylvia from Commerce, CA
An important thing to realize as an incoming college student is how different it is from high school. In many classes, your entire grade is based solely on exams. This means that preparation is up to you since there is no homework. Start good study habits early to help relieve the stress of your first year of college. While maintaining good grades is the most important part of college, it is also key to involve yourself in extracurricular activities. At Washington State there are a number of ways to get involved, and I recommend that everyone at least find one group that shares their interests. It’s a great way to make new friends and get the most out of the college experience.
Meigan from Kent, WA
Find something you enjoy and get involved. WSU has so many opportunities for students. Many of the clubs are available to all students and they are a great way to meet new friends.
Sarah from Arlington, WA
stock up on cold weather clothing for the winter months- the snow can really build up, and school pretty much never gets cancelled! also, get involved in whatever you can. it's a great way to meet new people and get to know the university.
