Washington State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (43)
Had I had more support when choosing a school, there's a very good chance I would have gone somewhere else. With that said, however, WSU, like many universities, is exactly what you put into it. I made lasting relationships with both peers and faculty, got an education that has propelled me into a career I honestly enjoy. The campus is beautiful and the people are kind. It's in the middle of nowhere Eastern Washington, however, and overall is quite conservative as a region. You'll often be taught by adjuncts and grad students, not faculty, even at the higher course levels. Then again, at least in my field, the adjuncts were the instructors I learned the most from. College is what you make it, and WSU is a school like many others: you'll get out what you put in.
I attended a branch campus of WSU and enjoyed the small class size and access to professors. When considering location as a major factor this is a great University to attend.
Great university. Loved the small town feel and that the university is the town.
It is the real college experience. The whole city centers around the university. Everyone is friendly and the city isn't bad either. Definitely not a lot to do but you can find stuff. Or party.
Strong Curriculum, great community, strong greek system, affordable state school
WSU is a great school. I had many great professors and a wonderful experience overall.
After receiving my Associate's at the community college I attended Washington State in the Fall and it was the best choice I ever made. The campus is absolutely beautiful and the school pride of the students and professors make it unique in its own. The pride of being a Washington State Cougar is something most people will not understand till you are apart of the university. Their is many programs offered that are ranked high and clubs and events that happen throughout the year on campus are endless. People think its a small town but there is so much a student can do if they take the opportunity to visit all Washington State has to offer and being apart of the culture.
Washington State University is a great school for someone who wants to have a complete college experience. Being remotely located, WSU affords the student the opportunity to get totally immersed in college life without big city distractions. As funny as it may sound, Cougar Pride is real and often times you run across folks who see you wearing WSU apparel and get a quick "Go Cougs" as you walk by. The local environment in Pullman is fantastic if you like outdoor activities either on or off campus. Academically, the school offers a wide range of degrees and I found the classes made me well prepared for the working world.
The college experience in and of itself at WSU was an amazing experience. I was able to not only make lifelong friends, but also to build lasting relationships with faculty and staff. While at WSU I worked on campus for the WSU Libraries and the College of Business' Dean's Office. The education I received truly benefited me directly when pursuing my career. I'm a lifelong Coug!
WSU is unique in that Pullman is really centered around the University. You get a stronger sense of community while getting a high level of education. There are a plenty of ways to get involved and customize your Cougar experience. They are continually improving the university and it's programs. There is a reason Cougars have so much pride. Go Cougs!
