"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."

"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!"

"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."

"Washington State was a wonderful university. I was able to take part in research as an undergrad and had a diversified course load that enabled a broad learning experience. Socially, Pullman offered just enough things to get into to keep life interesting and we could always drive to Moscow, ID for additional fun options. Overall, it was a very fun and rewarding time."

"Attending Washington State University was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I immediately immersed myself in everything the school had to offer, including joining a sorority, getting a job on campus, trying out a club sport, getting involved in research, and seeking out clubs to join. The classes offered are wonderful, and I never felt like I was not respected, nor did I feel like I did not belong. The professors really want to engage with students, and appreciate feedback on their classroom performance. I would say the one thing that I felt discouraged by was the lack of help I received from my academic advisor. The advisors are there to support students, and help them make informed choices regarding classes, future education, and job opportunities. The psychology advisors would simply tell me what classes to take, and when I would ask for information regarding anything other than psychology or my schedule, they had minimal advice for me. I had to seek out things like, research opportunities, scholarships, graduate school information, and career opportunities on my own and this was frustrating because I felt like they were not living up to their roles. I cant speak on behalf of all the advisors at Washington State University, but I think there is room for improvement."

"WSU provided me with a quality and well-rounded education. The university and Pullman really cater to the students and to the overall college experience. If I could choose any college all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. I double majored in Psychology and Biology. Originally, Psych was my minor but after speaking with my counselor, I was told I only needed a few extra classes to double major. It was super easy to add in the double major and I appreciate my counselor letting me know my options."

"I went to Washington State University and had a great time. When I say great time that mostly means the social aspect. The schooling was hit or miss depending what teacher/course you took. Pullman is a college city and although fairly large it had an intimate feel to it. It was a good fit for me because I had a lot of friends that went there too and they became like a second family to me. Yes, Psychology was a pretty general degree that I could pursue different careers with. It was a good foundation degree choice that gave me multiple options for what I wanted to pursue a graduate degree in. Visit the school you are thinking about going to and attend as many socials off and on campus to get a good understanding of what life is like."
