3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There are plenty of parks to play at but not enough family things to do or see.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town is one big Cougar neighborhood. I have heard that the majority of townspeople either go to WSU or work for it. Most of the popular outlet stores are in the neighboring state (we are close to the border) but there is still a good amount of services in our town. The Lentil Festival is a huge event that occurs in the city park and has an awesome turnout. Downtown is a historical place great for strolls after sunset.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The locals are happy with us and we try to show our appreciation by supporting them.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It is absolutely beautiful at WSU and the surrounding area. A major city is just a mere 45 minutes away.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Everything is built around WSU and it is such an amazing place to live.
