Washington Adventist University Reviews
Washington Adventist University is a mediocre institution. The pros of this institution include receiving Christian education if you are Christain, and this institution also has a good community of kind-hearted individuals. It's a very small institution, so classrooms are small and you'll get the attention you need from your professors to succeed. Despite these things, the institution has many old buildings that are run down and unhealthy to reside in. They have a slow system in the office of the registrar and the institution is outdated. The materials and equipment are outdated in the science department and most buildings.
The graduation rate is low for a reason. It seems as though they try to tie you down for a few extra years on purpose so you can pay them more. For example, the school lured me in with the promise of my final semester being free if completed within 4 years. I am fulfilling my end, but now they are starting to make things difficult, bringing up paperwork that was never initially mentioned. It is also very common that on your final semester they will magically add an unfulfilled class they never cared to mention or show in the checklist for your major. The good thing about this school is the small class size and most professors have your best interest in mind. If you have money to blow, have a sports or pastorals scholarship, by all means, attend. If not, I do not recommend this school.
Washington Adventist University is a good school, They have been very wonderful helping me throughout my program due to the fact I have Sickle Cell Anemia they have been amazing. The professor are awesome they are always around whether on campus or by email. Library and Science build is available when you need to use the computer or study. The new nursing building is wonderful. My experience so far has been great, I can't complain.
