Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

CWU provided a community environment that fostered both traditional learning and critical thinking. Not only are all instructors highly committed to every student's success, all staff goes above and beyond to help in any way they can. My time at CWU is cherished, and I recommend CWU campuses in Lynnwood and Des Moines specifically for anyone with schedule limitations or location requirements - an easy way to get a quality education from the same professors in Ellensburg without the hassle or class time commitments. Go Wildcats!

Degree: Public Health/Community Nurse/Nursing
Graduation Year: 1998

Attending CWU was an amazing experience. It's a beautiful community that has embraced it's University population and is welcoming to it's students. Getting my degree was much simpler than I expected thanks to the constant involvement of education advisor and department faculty. Each quarter I met with my advisor to make sure I was staying on track with my program and that if I needed any assistance or changes to my program, it happened in a timely matter. The housing and food were very good. Dorms were clean and mostly quiet. Apartment living was a little louder. There is a HUGE party scene at CWU even though there isn't a Greek system.

Degree: Mental and Social Health Services and Allied Professions, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

Central Washington University provided an excellent foundation for my education, career and life goals. The college as a whole demonstrates diversity and inclusivity by celebrating and acknowledging the differences amongst the students, faculty, staff, and community members. The CWU Social Services and Sociology Department prepares students by providing them with the resources, experiences, and discussions needed to be successful in the field. The professors care about the success of their students and are willing to set aside time to assist them when they need it. I would recommend the Central Washington University Social Services and Sociology Department and the college as a whole to anyone looking for a school that genuinely cares about the success and well-being of their students.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

While the school itself is a bit of a mess, there are a lot of amazing staff on campus who put students first always. The Center for Diversity and Social Justice on campus was a particularly valuable resource I was luck enough to have stumbled into. The professional staff in the office are wonderful and highly educated on diversity. I would wholeheartedly recommend Central if you know what you want to study already.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Central Washington University is a fantastic choice if you are unsure of what you want to do as a career. They have many program types and a broad general requirements that allow everyone to look into different fields and departments. If you do know what your going into, you can plan you general requirements to fit with in your field of study. The only issues I have witness are from the deans of the university, especially the head of the university who received a half a million incentive pay to stay on by his peers. I have no idea what he does and rarely am told of anything positive happening on that level. As far as the education of the school it is fantastic no matter how questionable the actual campus is ran.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Central Washington University is an excellent school where students in the Law and Justice department learn the basics of the legal field in a variety of specializations. These specializations range from pre-law, forestry and law enforcement in class with a diverse group of colleagues and professors. Classes are offered online for students living in different parts of the states, employed or with a busy schedule. Professors for the most part are very attentive and usually answer questions through email fairly quickly.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2008

I wish I would have known more about financial aid and to have counselors that can help put you in the right direction during college and post college. Help in aiding where to work after college.

Degree: Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Administration
Graduation Year: 2008

I had thought I wanted to go to a big University, but after a visit to one I knew it was not for me. CWU offers an extraordinary experience you can only receive from a smaller school. I received a wonderful and unique education available only at CWU.

Small programs, you can get connected with your teachers easily. The people that work there all seem to love what they do and it reflects in the programs and classes offered.
