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!
Attending Washington State will always be remembered as some of the best years of my life. Although it is a large university you still get the small school/town feel. The campus is walkable and clean. Your teachers know you and want you to succeed. Students/staff are all friendly. It is also a very positive environment. I do not have a single complaint about attending Washington State University.
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.
WSU is a great place for students who are serious about their education. It provides the real College feel because it is removed from many of the big city distractions. I recommend WSU to anyone who wants a community that surrounds and supports their education goals.
Double major in Psych and Business, with an empahsis in Marketing. WSU was a great campus where the town revolves around the college. Nothing beats the campus atmosphere. Very friendly all aroound and the Greek system was a great experience. I was also actively involved in Psi Chi the pyschology club, as well as Alpha Kappa Psi, the business fraternity.
I am beyond impressed with the education, support & overall experience that I had while attending WSU-Online. My instructors were available & involved & the student government did their absolute best to keep us involved with one another as a community even from afar!
I had an amazing experience at WSU. Transferring from an in-state community college my second year was seamless. I lived in a dorm, which was located in the middle of campus, for two years and my final year I lived off-campus in an apartment. Living on campus made for getting to classes, club meetings, sporting events and other activities really easy. Hotel Restaurant Administration (HRA) is a business degree that focuses on the hospitality industry. Marketing, accounting, human resources, statistics, finance, etc. were required courses. The advisors for my major were accessible, knowledgeable and helpful. Many of the professors had industry experience and connections. My major required 1000 hours of related work experience. The school did a fantastic job of bringing employers to campus. HRA was one of the best majors in terms of providing job fairs, company previews and job interviews for its students. Through career services, students were able to find summer internships and/or full-time employment. When I was at WSU, the job placement rate for my major was extremely high. Obtaining a college degree provides an important foundation, but having hands-on experience is also critical when entering the workforce (discovered there is so much still to be learned after entering the “real” world). HRA encouraged and required this combination – book and hands-on learning. Sigma Iota (HRA Club) was another place to learn new skills and meet new people. Traveling to San Diego with club members my senior year was a valuable, an enriching and a fun experience. I have such fond memories of WSU and my family and I continue to create new memories when we return to campus. It isn’t just the education I received, but the friendships made and the overall feeling that comes with being a Coug that is so rewarding.
