Rigorous courses

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My degree is in dietetics which is a fairly popular field right now, I feel secure that I will be able to get a job after graduation. Bastyr is particularly respected in the nutrition field as well, so I think that will help to give me a leg up.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Bastyr is in a relatively safe area, however anything can still happen. While I've never felt threatened on campus there is a lack of security that I am aware of. We are in a state park, therefore we are very accessibly to the public, and it would possibly be very easy for an unsafe person to be on campus without people noticing or finding it odd. There aren't blue lights like there are on other campuses and security is accessible by phone only. I've always had luck getting in touch with security when needed (for maintenance type of services) but have heard this isn't always the case.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is very unique, students live in large "houses" where each student has their own room and bathroom and share a large kitchen, living space area. People are generally respectful of common space (will vary depending on who is living at the dorm at any given time), cleaning crew comes every week or two and students are responsible for keeping the space clean between those visits.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small, professors are encouraging and passionate, the courses are thought provoking and there are many different types of classes offered.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Many of the degrees offered like ND or acupuncture are fields where the healthcare provider must open a private practice. The rest are fields that are up and coming so many jobs are available.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus is very safe. There is a security team but I have not heard of their services ever being needed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is incredibly small, with only about 1200 students, about half of them are in the naturopathic doctor program. They instructors are experts and care deeply about their students success. I would definitely choose Bastyr again. I feel well prepared for the future.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Bastyr has one of the best doctorate of naturopathic medicine curriculums in the world.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Bastyr offers personalized attention and focuses on a holistic whole foods approach to Nutrition, while providing a rigorous science background.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Bastyr is an amazing community within the school. The teachers are wonderful, supportive, and challenge us to work hard. The curriculum is intense, science-heavy, with an emphasis on natural health. With programs like Naturopathic Medicine, acupuncture, nutrition, botany, oriental medicine, and midwifery, we're able to interact with students from other programs and pick their brains for ways to enhance our own paths as well. The student body is very supportive of each other and it's just a great learning experience.

Campus Food: Everything is good, just expensive.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Small fridge space, REALLY nice rooms, and spacious.

5 College Junior

Academics: This is a new program but I feel honored to be a part of it and a part of Bastyr. The cohort I am a part of is small and allows for sharing of ideas and intimacy. It is evident that my peers are highly intelligent and emotionally evolved, as are the faculty of course! Everyone shares a desire for all involved to succeed in this program and in life. It feels as though this program is designed and implemented from a place of compassion.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The campus is small but has a friendly, community feel. It is in a forested, beautiful setting with flourishing gardens and hiking paths to the water. If you're looking for big and boastful, this is not the campus for you. If you are looking for natural beauty in an environment where students and faculty truly care about what they are learning and teaching, you won't be disappointed.

Local Area: A car is really needed in order to get out and enjoy all the area has to offer. With Seattle and Bellevue nearby, there are many great eateries, museums, shopping opportunities, sporting events and nightlife options. There are also countless outdoor enthusiast pursuits including hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing, skiing, snowshoeing, and more. Without a car though, this campus is somewhat remote with limited public transportation options.
