Western Washington University Reviews
One thing I really like about this campus is that lots of students gather in Red Square to promote political issues, clubs and activities, concerts, speeches, etc. and have the freedom to do so. Lots of art exhibits and displays from professional artists and student artists alike.
The info fair at the beginning of the year lasts 2 days and showcases a variety of activities and clubs to partake in on campus and around Bellingham. This is very much a college town, but not so overbearing. The rest of the city's population are easy to get along with and very open-minded. There are many hang out spots. The campus also does a good job with emergencies on campus.
