Western Washington University Reviews
Western Washington University has a great community established in the university as well as surrounding the university. The people are friendly and caring with some diversity in the student body through students of color and out of state students. The staff at the university ranging from Professors, Teaching Assistants, Custodial Workers, and more are wonderful and very respectful to the university and those who are at the university. Western gives an amazing experience to those who value their education and have fun while doing so!
I love the campus, itself! A ton of neat things to see and do as you walk around between classes, or just for fun. Every season brings beauty to the campus, and you can't beat the breathtaking view of Bellingham Bay, especially at night! My professors have been really great and helpful, for the most part. I've met my best, life-long friends at Western. The people are pretty friendly, in general. The dorms are not terrible--I lived in Nash for my first two years. It's located in a super eccentric city, and Downtown Bellingham is an incredible, quirky place for eating, shopping, and exploring! Overall, I am really going to miss attending school at Western when I graduate!
I loved everything about Western Washington University! I graduated with two undergraduate degrees- Spanish and Communication, and I minored in Psychology. My Spanish professor was the best teacher I have had to this day; she even encouraged and helped me study abroad in Spain for a semester. Studying abroad was a life changing experience, and I am so grateful that Western helps make dreams to study and travel abroad into a reality. I love the surrounding area, Bellingham, as it boasts tons of hiking, running and biking trails. There are mountains close by for backpacking and skiing and tons of awesome camping spots. There are beaches, lakes, and water activities. There are amazing restaurants, breweries, shopping, and live music scene. I would recommend this college and surrounding city to anyone!
