When it comes to sports this school is very supportive. I would say the most popular sport is basketball. There are always supporters at each game though. As far as basketball though, it's tremendous. People from everywhere come to the events, and they are actually worth going to. It brings students together for a period of time, even some of the staff like to come and watch. I feel like the school is revolved around basketball.
Review Washington Adventist University
My experience was great! Professors were challenging but were always there to help you reach your goals.
Washington Adventist University has made me focus on my goal rather than the place where I am reaching my goal. This university has great professors especially in the science department, that are very knowledgeable on their subjects. This university has also given me the means to allow my spiritual life to grow through mission trips across the globe to countries such as the Philippines. Here at WAU I have become very active and well rounded by joining extra curricular activities and have met people who I intend to keep forever.
