Degree: English Language and Literature/Letters, Other
Graduation Year: 2010

Western Washington University's various English disciplines include Creative Writing, Language and Literature, Teaching English as a Second Language, and Education. I went with the first on the list, owing to my love of writing, although I completed the entire course load of a Language and Literature major, and my first job out of college was as an ESL teacher. Although I was mildly frustrated and felt a little cheated to have encountered stiff opposition in trying to leverage several completed courses toward a double major in Creative Writing and Language and Literature (they won that battle), and the student advisers I encountered did not always seem to have my best interest at heart, I was supremely satisfied with the quality of the vast majority of professors, associate professors and even student professors at the school, particularly within the English and History departments. Creative writing courses heavily emphasized workshops, and required reading in literature courses ran the gamut from new to completely fresh, except in the case of those courses focused on specific time periods. I recommend the school as a whole, though I suggest that creative writing as a major is only appropriate for those who know specifically how they plan to employ the experience in their ensuing careers.

Western's a great school, just small enough that you feel you have hands on help from professors, and you're not lost in classes with 90 people all the time, but large enough that you can find places that you really fit in.

Really enjoyed WWU. Great professors and a lot of diversity of classes. The campus itself is really nice and beautiful NW scenery. It's a college town so a lot to do on weekends and evenings for students. Recommended it to a cousin who's now attending and loves it!

Western has an appreciation for cultural and learning diversity, and emphasizes that in instruction. The English program has no complaints on my part, and professors do an excellent job in practicing what they preach and teach; it feels as if you are getting an education from experts in their field. The campus and student organizations do an excellent job creating a community of acceptance and togetherness, but the vibe overall is laid back with an emphasis on creativity, expression, and academics.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2007

For me, college was a valuable experience which I enjoyed. It enriches your perspective on life and gives you the opportunity to explore a variety of topics to expand your interests and skills. However, it has left me in a great amount of debt with no prospects of paying it off in my lifetime. While I maintain employment, it's not in my preferred field, where entry level jobs don't come with a wage sufficient to pay the bills, including the student loan bills.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2012

I would have liked more school experiences that showed me what the work place would be like. I graduated with very little preperation to understand what a career would be like.

Degree: Educational Administration and Supervision, Other
Graduation Year: 1995

Fabulous! Loved all 5 years. I had guidance and assistance when needed. Registering was always easy. I lived on campus for one year and then lived off campus for the rest of the years. I enjoyed the activities offered to students. It is a beautiful area. I was always able to maintain employment.

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2012

The English department at Western Washington University sports some of the most talented professors and faculty on the planet. Like most schools, the farther you go in the program, the more personalized the experience becomes, and this is extremely valuable when it comes to the Creative Writing program. The work is meaningful and enlightening, and you're sure to graduate with a better understanding of the world around you and how literature and writing fits into it.
