4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've only had a couple of bad profs - one who really didn't care about whether her students did well (and has since left) and one who didn't seem to care about the other classes his students had and just assigned boatloads of work anyway.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The CWU Police Department is great and campus is fairly safe, but CWU staff have a lot of work to do in their sexual assault response department. A friend of mine was sexually assaulted and basically ignored when she tried to get help.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I love living in housing, the community is great and the staff are too, but the price is pretty darn high, especially given how cheap off-campus rentals are in Ellensburg.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Kind of hard to sum it up, but the professors definitely set Central apart from other schools. Faculty are great teachers and very approachable, and TA's are only really used in lab courses; lecture students get to engage with their professor much more than at other universities.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Overall class size is relatively balanced among students, classes are full but not too large.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The student center works hard to try and give you good options for your post college experience

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I haven't been on campus enough to know about the campus security

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The housing department is extremely uncooperative

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: As of now I do not know much about the athletics

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Having recently started at school I am not as familiar with the campus as I should be, but so far the entire school has been very welcoming.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the class sizes because its small enough for the professors to engage and get to know their students thus creating a nice student-teacher relationship. I had created a lot of those types of relationships with many of my professors which helped me in many different ways, from homework assistance to letters of recommendations and nominations.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security and safety is top notch on campus. A lot of law enforcement to provide assistance when needed and there are security poles spread throughout campus to help students call for help and the response time is very quick. Alerts are sent via through student email accounts to help keep everyone safe.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in one of the campus' oldest dorms but was not disappointed because of the social atmosphere and cleanliness. The only complaint would have to be the lack of air conditioning during the hotter time of the year.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many students involve themselves in the athletics at the university. Students are very passionate about support the athletic programs and make use of the facilities provided. Whether it is intramural or varsity sports the university does their best to emphasize the importance of student support to help the athletic program thrive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The overall experience at Central Washington University is great! The professors are very understanding, engaging, and helpful to those of us students who need the extra assistance. It is a very liberal campus that provides a comfortable environment for all types of students. Another thing that helps is that the professional pilot program is a little more affordable than many other colleges that offer the same program.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of career services/networks on campus. The school is very willing to help you find a job on campus or in your field of study.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed all of the courses I have taken so far. There are so many courses to choose from and the professors are usually very nice, helpful, and know what they are doing. Class sizes are generally small and that is important because professors can have more one-on-one time with each student.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. The school has lots of safety measures and services.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus, so I'm going to live on campus again next year. It's nice hanging out with friends in your hall.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our sports teams and athletics are great. During this last school year, our softball team made it to super regionals (farther than CWU's softball team has ever gone before). I'm very proud of and impressed by the sports teams at my school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love CWU and would definitely choose it again if I had the choice. There are so many things to do here and the students, professors, and other faculty are friendly and helpful.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health and Safety is taken seriously on campus. There are many classes and instructional videos and activities that all new students are required to go through. I feel very safe on campus. If I don't feel safe I can call the Cat Squad and a student security guard can come and walk me to where I want to go, no matter how late it is.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms and campus apartments are very close to classes and the rec center. The dorms were very clean and had a code of respect when living in them. The on campus living environment was very friendly and I was able to meet a lot of cool and friendly people that I know I will stay friends with for the years to come. The cost was a little pricey, but it came with all conveniences of living comfortably. The dorm rooms were very spacious as well.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Being apart of a varsity athletic team on campus, athletics at Central are taken very seriously. Athletics is a great way for more students to get involved with their school and support their fellow student athletes. There is great fan support and school spirit, especially in the popular sports of football and basketball. At times, the stands are packed and showing great support to the team playing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Central Washington University is a great school that is very helpful in finding a students passion and major. It is very versatile regarding majors because almost every major is available. Central also is very diverse in people. You can find students from other countries, other ethnicities, religions, ages, and political stances. The campus is the perfect size for students to walk from class to class and not be late, even if their classes are one after the other. The class sizes are fairly small which give the professors plenty of opportunity to help students individually and answer questions in class.
