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!

I love Walla Walla University. The atmosphere is so welcoming and friendly, I have never been in such a positive environment as Walla Walla has created. That being said, it is not a very racially diverse campus, and that is something that needs to change. Walla Walla does do its best to make sure the non-white students are involved and have many outlets to share and express pride for their nationalities. Even still the minority is extremely outnumbered and Walla Walla should do its best to bring in and give more opportunities to the minorities.
My experience at Walla Walla Univeristy was great. The atmosphere and the environment was very welcoming. Professors are very helpful. They want you to succeed. There are free tutoring sessions for most of your classes, free of charge! Walla Walla Univeristy may be the right school for you!
