5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses and professors have been exceptional. The nutrition program tracks are specifically tailored to each focus and the ease of scheduling has been a dream. I have respected, liked and learned a great deal from each professor I've come in contact with.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Bastyr is extremely well respected and I believe I will have no problem finding meaningful work post-graduation. I have not interacted much as of yet with the career center (much of that will happen next fall) - so can't speak to that as of yet.

Health & Safety: Campus security is not a focus at Bastyr per se - likely due to the small campus, the small student body, the small ratio of males/females and the location (360 wooded acres surrounded by suburbia). I have never heard of a single safety issue on campus or in the surrounding park area. I feel very safe on campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far my experience has been exceptional. The instructors are all very invested in what they're teaching, their students and wellness in general. It is a wonderful and supportive environment.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses and professors are fantastic and absolutely packed with information.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think there is an emerging field trend for natural health. I think a degree here is valuable.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I hear that there has been one incident on campus this year, but statistically, that's not excessively terrifying.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are 12 people per dorm. Each room has its own bathroom and the floors are heated. Sound carries very well in the dorms, unfortunately. Untidy roommates can be a hassle.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Bastyr is fantastic. The community is open, kind, and accepting and the curriculum is intense and stimulating.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have some park facilities, but sports are not a thing at this school. Club activities are where you will get your fix of sports. We are in the middle of a beautiful state park though! Hikers rejoice!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are passionate and the school is not diverse.

3 College Freshman

5 College Senior

Passionate, informed, accessible teachers

Supportive community/class mates

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.

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.
