"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."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2005
"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."

Degree: Restaurant Management
Graduation Year: 1996
"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."

Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2004
"Coug life was great! I had a car, but not everyone did. It really wasn't necessary since the whole town is set up around the college. Dorms the first year were fine, and a good way to determine who to room with off campus the following years. I've found that it as far as getting hired it doesn't matter too much where you went to school, the degrees are all the same. So my advice would be to pick a school you'll enjoy for the time you're there. I can't say enough great things about the faculty and student of WSU"

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 1959
"Without a degree, I would not have been able to get a full-time teaching position. I continued with further education as required by my profession, and got a Master of Teaching degree in 1991. My undergraduate studies were adequate, but I was able to take graduate courses through the years that were more helpful and specific to my teaching assignments and needs. My date of birth is off your chart! (1937)"
