Walla Walla University is an excellent University to attend if you are passionate about your relationship with Christ and are serious about getting top notch education in not only your desired field, but also in religion and other life applicable areas. They are very well known all over the country for their School of Engineering, which is the reason I am there, and I have to say I am very impressed with their organization of classes, schedules, and events not to mention how excellent the Professors are. Most of them have their Doctorate and are knowledgable well above their years. If this sounds like a University that fits you, I encourage you to give it a shot for yourself and take a tour here sometime. You won't regret it!

The career center on campus is very effecient and provides ample opportunities to students. Tips for networking and interview preparation are readily offered, and the process for finding internships was hassle free and very successful! The alumni network is strong, and alumni from all fields visit campus often to lecture on their experience in the field and provide networking opportunities. The resources available to students are remarkable!
Walla Walla University is a great school academically and socially. The classes we are required to take in are specific major well prepare us for are future careers. The classes challenge you academically, which is very beneficial. The relationships you build with professors will help you in the long run especially since most professors can help with internships and job opportunities. The students are extremely welcoming and polite. The atmosphere of the college may come off too protective, but I feel like I appreciated this the most. This college cares about the balance between school and personal life. In some classes even professors give pointers for incorporating a healthy life style like incorporating god and working out into your schedule. Overall this university has impacted my life positively in so many ways and I appreciate the time I have spent here and the time I have left here. The connection I have made with fellow students and professors I feel will last a lifetime.
