Washington State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (45)
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.
Global campus online school: If you are a single parent, or have other life responsibilities, don't even try. Yvonne Berliner (Women in Latin American history) is unsympathetic to real life issues arising throughout the semester; She's very condescending as well.Teachers are micro-managers-online studies should be more flexible and accommodating to busy adults. The technology used for assignments is antiquated; I had better quality online classes at Lake Wa Technical College. I'm canceling my enrollment- I deserve better if I'm PAYING to get an education. WSU, step it up!
Global Campus is AWFUL. No lectures, a lot of busy work. Teachers aren't helpful, instructions aren't clear, just incredibly time consuming and frustrating. A lot of confusing typos, absolutely no thought put into class design... I transferred in and after one year I'm transferring out.
Washington State University Vancouver provided a top notch education opportunity in a smaller setting. Class sizes were small and allowed me to grow connections with the professors. The Public Affairs program prepared me for a career in public service in local government.
WSU is an awesome place to attend school. I love being an alumni and love calling myself a coug. I was an out of state student therefore, tuition was high for me and I was a transfer student, so there were less opportunities for me for receiving aid. I would encourage everyone to apply and attend WSU. I also highly suggest that you pick a major that you love and that you can translate into the working world and one where in which you can obtain a job.
Washington State University is a family. I know many people would say that, but it is an unbreakable bond and fantastic school if you give it a chance. I do not want to give a review that seems like a recitation of a commercial, or some pitch from a recruiter. So what I will tell you is my story. I was an anthro major and got myself involved in clubs and activities that made me some of the best friends I have ever had and continue to have to this day. I engaged in experiences that completely shaped and changed my career path for the better such as undergraduate research in a completely different field of study. I was dead set on being in a specific category within the system, anthropology, but classes and professors showed me that it was possible to be more than just that category, more than just a female student getting a bachelors with 25,000+ other students. I was an anthropologist, a scientist, a researcher, a student, a friend, and part of a family. There is something unexplainable about being a Washington State Cougar. But at Washington State University you are more than just a number or student in a chair. You are forever part of the family, no matter where you go, or what career you pursue, you will have other cougs believing in you. I will leave you with this, Go Cougs.
Attending Washington state university was a greet experience for me. Going to college on the other side of the state not only allowed me to meet new friends and grow my network but I was able to really mature as an adult. This university creates various opportunities for students to gain leadership experience in educational groups as well as extracurricular groups.
I loved my time at WSU but a Bachelor's degree in Communication doesn't do a whole lot for you. I will be attending graduate school in a field unrelated but I don't regret and will never regret getting my degree. The experience I had at WSU will forever stick with me and I am very excited for the next career goals I hope to achieve.
Washington State University (Vancouver) is a great educational institution. You get to enjoy the academic resources of a major research institution with the small, intimate feeling of a local, community campus. In four years as a science major, my largest classes were still smaller than those you'd find at some of the larger institutions. My professors knew me by name and were invested in my success. There are many opportunities for research, community involvement, networking, career counseling, and more. Because there are no dorms on campus, the entire school is focused on education and improving the lives of their students and community. Challenging curriculum, tough professors, and degree programs that are designed for transfer and getting their students into the workforce. In all, I recommend WSU Vancouver for your undergraduate educational goals.
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.
