Western Oregon University Graduate Reviews
I love WOU. The campus is small and charming. The grounds are well kept and the staff/students are very friendly. It is a place where people feel welcome and that they can be themselves. Since it is a smaller school there are more opportunities for students to work on campus and with their professors.
I enjoyed the small class sizes as well as the location. Monmouth is not far from Salem and is also close to outdoor activities such as hiking and visiting the coast. The education department sometime leaves a bit to be desired in terms of practical training for teachers.
