Western Oregon University is one amazing university with a surprising amount of opportunities for being a small state school! I'm part of the Honors Program at WOU, I'm a Peer Mentor, and I have been able to participate in many on-campus clubs, organizations, sports, and events. Western was my dream school and it has lived up to and beyond my expectations. The student leadership on campus is really helpful for incoming students, all of the faculty at WOU are friendly and also extremely helpful and supportive in many areas. One of the things I love about Western is the smaller class sizes. The small classes allow more one-on-one time with the professors, which I find to be helpful. All of the professors I've had for my classes are always available during their office hours and if you come into their office during that time, whether you have questions about the class or you just want to get to know the professor better, they are very friendly and always helpful. Another thing I appreciate about WOU is that the professors are people too; they are understanding and flexible with just about anything as long as you communicate with them what is going on. My overall experience at Western has been fantastic! I definitely recommend taking this university into consideration.
