"Central provided a small enough campus to get to know most people, but large enough to support a diverse and vibrant population. The college boasts a wide variety of quality programs, including teacher prep, theatre, and geology. Both the sciences and arts receive attention and accolades."

"Once you get through the red tape it's easy! Just kidding, it's worth it! I didn't want to wait tables for the rest of my life. A Bachelor degree is the new Highschool Diploma. Whatever you study doesn't mean that you're stuck in that path forver."

"I was happy with my program's class options and electives when I initially enrolled in the major. However, during my time at CWU, there were major budget cuts. I had the same handful of teachers for all my courses, even if they weren't completely the best option for the lessons. I also found it hard to find my electives as the program continued to shrink. And despite the small size, I still wish I had had more individual attention."

"My college degree was instrumental to my career, which I consider successful. My degree allowed me to obtain well paying jobs which I would not have been able to obtain otherwise. It also gave me greater flexibility in work location, which allowed me and my family to relocate to the specific place we wanted to live. I am 59 years old and recently retired. I was financially able to retire early because the jobs I've held in my career paid well enough to allow me to save adequately. Without my college degree I would still be working, most likely at a lower paying job. My recommendation: Obtain a college degree in a field that is of interest to you, but also in a field that is in demand from the employer's perspective. You work hard and pay a lot for that degree, make it worthwhile!"
