"from admissions to financial aid to the classes themselves, transferring to wsu global campus is one of the worst mistakes I've ever made. Many of the courses are literally just an online textbook, homework problems, and exams. And that's the good ones. SO MANY GROUP PROJECTS, and in an online setting the normal problems with that just get magnified. There's no education, you're completely on your own. This is NOT the place to start a new career. I absolutely HATE it."

"Attending Washington State University was the best decision of my life! The spirit and culture found on the Palouse is unmatched. The Human Development department shows that they care about the overall well being of their students. Mental health and work-life balance is emphasized by both peers and faculty. The major sets you up for success by requiring an internship and actually helping you get one that works for you. The courses apply to real world problems and encourage students to deeply understand and think about creative ways to better the world. Go Cougs!"

"While attending WSU, I felt very accepted and supported. Staff and professors were willing to help students on educational matters. I made great connections and networked while there. The university provides many extracurricular activities for students. Making friends was easy since the student body is made up of open-minded individuals. Educational support programs made the journey of going through school that much easier. WSU is a great place to go to school. The admissions process is typical of other schools. They do value things like grades, recommendation letters and overall GPA's. Getting to know your advisor is something that will help immensely. Also, making connections with your professors will help in the future if you ever need a recommendation letter. You will probably come across the same students in your classes, so I advise you to make friends with them too. Asking questions and seeking assistance is encouraged. I cant speak for other schools, but most of the departments at WSU were very kind, open and inviting. I do think there should be even more opportunities for scholarships and financial assistance. During my time there, I majored in psychology and minored in business. I can only speak for my own experiences, but my journey was very enjoyable. I enjoy quiet places and the school had plenty of those. Everything was close together, so you didnt have to walk too far for classes. Almost all my professors had an open-door policy, meaning you could just stop by to their office and ask them for help. My business professors were very well versed in topics such as entrepreneurship, human resources, and business law. This made the curriculum diverse and interesting. The psychology professors were encouraging when it came to research participation and internships. The university really encouraged students to gain real-world work experience while attending school. I participated in student government and it gave me my first work experience. It was fun to participate in school events and help students. I think that overall WSU is a great school to attend and can provide a great educational experience."

"I am still a student at Washington State University. I am studying PhD at the College of Education. My experience as graduate is good so far. However, my experience as at the INTO program is horrible. INTO is a program that helps international students get admission to the university after they finish the program. The program didn't teach me anything and failed me twice on purpose so that I pay for two semesters. I talked to the director and the associate director many times about the reasons why I should have passed, but they ignored me. I am so disappointed. All the students at this program are unhappy and some of them moved out to different states. Please do not consider this language program."

"I am an international student from Asia at INTO program at Washington State University. It is a program that prepares international students to enter university without TOEFL requirement. The program is not good and the teachers are not qualified. They say that they are practicing student- centered teaching, but it is teacher centered. All the teachers are in one big office and they do not have their own offices. When I talked to my professor about an admission, she advised me to change school as this language center does not prepare students effectively to start their graduate schools. The place is so old. The town is so boring. Nothing to do in Pullman. I advise international students not to come to this place."

"Attending Washington State University was truly a life changing experience. I finished my B.S. in Psychology and loved every minute of it. The education I received was well rounded and included general education requirements as well as specific psychology classes. Additionally, there was a great deal of opportunity at the school to gain valuable research experience. Moreover, there are several teaching assistance positions that would help people stand out when they applied to graduate school. The counselors and the school system it's self is really set up to help people obtain resource and succeed. The only challenge is that the school is a big party school. However, if you have your priorities in line and a goal in sight for your future you will get finish university just fine. In fact, I would say that many people find out how to establish a healthy work life balance based on their experience at WSU. The school really set me up well for my Master's and Doctoral program. GO COUGS!"

"I greatly enjoyed my experience in Washington State University's Elementary Education program. Washington State as a whole was a great school to attend, being a college town really aided in not feeling like just a number. The Elementary program has some strict requirements to get into the program, but once enrolled the program ran smoothly. Each semester was organized and each class fit into our specific degree. The program directors really took student input into account, regarding issues from class load to class instruction smoothly. Overall, I am very pleased with my experience in the Elementary Education Program at Washington State University."

"As a busy mom of three, and working fulltime, WSU's online platform provided me with the tools to obtain a quality, affordable degree that I am very proud of. It has given me the foundation to pursue my dreams of attending graduate school where I am currently working towards my doctorate in Occupational Therapy."

"WSU has a great undergrad program for psychology, especially for students looking to pursue their degree online. There are a wide variety of courses, and different opportunities to enhance your learning experience through different roles not normally seen in online programs. WSU provides teaching assistant roles, research assistant roles, all of which enhance the learning experience. I was really impressed with my experience with WSU, and would recommend the program to any student, especially those with busy schedules, or children."
