4 College Junior

4 College Junior

Academics: The Psychology major has a dedicate staff who are aiming to make my school experience the best it can be

4 College Junior

Academics: Classes fill up on a first come, first served basis. There are a lot of study spaces and labs throughout campus. Most professors have several hours during the week for questions/concerns.

5 College Junior

Academics: The engineering department is amazing. There are few women in this male dominated career, but those who do make it are treated as equals on campus.

3 College Senior

Academics: The workload is really big. I have had a more good teachers than bad ones but I wish it was by a larger margin. There are some really terrible professors at WSU which ruins the college experience even though there are some really amazing ones. last semester I had three good professors one terrible one then one stupidly hard one.
