Washington State University Reviews
This university, it's staff, and it's student body has not only offered me a collection of lifelong memories, but also an immense amount of opportunity for my future dreams. The amenities on campus facilitate a healthy study environment and very student-accommodating. The people that Washington State University has brought into my life, from professors to dorm-mates, have impacted me in such a positive way. I am now in WSU's nursing program, which has brought me even more opportunities to learn and to grow through my nursing career. The experiences you will get here are unforgettable!
Attending WSU feels like you are surrounded by a massive family because of how supportive the Cougar community is to all our fellow Cougs. Even though Pullman is a pretty small town, there's lots to do in Pullman and on the WSU campus. The school spirit is insane and absolutely amazing, the professors and advisors are great (especially in the School of the Environment), and there are countless clubs and student organizations that you can join. Go Cougs!
I love that Washington State University is diverse and open to all religions and identities. I also enjoy how big the campus is and what the school has to offer with different organizations, programs, unions and etc. Even though, I didn't see the campus until I went to orientation, I absolutely fell in love with the campus. It's very high tech with nap rooms, clean environment, huge library and gym and has different activities to do such as rock climbing, rope course and etc. They also have great transportation services and easy access to transporting on campus with bikes you could rent for periods of time. Overall, I am very satisfied with WSU! Go COUGS!
