Party Scene: I don't partake too much on parties as my focus is my studies and track which don't leave too much time in between.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: It's nice to have other options off campus for days when you want to venture out.

5 College Student

Administration: Student social life is great as the college offers a lot of different activities from hiking to whitewater rafting, etc to promote healthy lives and fitness.

5 College Student

Campus Food: The dining areas are clean and very easy to navigate with a variety of choices.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is the best experience for a freshman as everything is in close proximity from the dorms. Faculty, students, etc are very friendly and helpful. It has made my transition to college life so much easier.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants have a hard time surviving since it's a small town.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's easy to have fun most nights, but when a few people leave for a weekend EVERYONE leaves.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: All of the administration work very hard to create a safe and positive experience for all students. If you're drinking but doing it safely, you'll be fine.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid will always be a hassle due to the cost of tuition, but it is much cheaper and better at CWU.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's bad but not terrible for for a college campus. There's a good variety.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. I've made many new friends and the resident assistants are also friendly and helpful. The dorms are clean and fairly modern.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Typical students are more from the west side but some of the student body is rarely from the east side. There are a lot of fit men and women due to sports as well as a fad in yoga and cross fit. Most of the people here are very decent and open although some are preppy and stuck up due to the life style of western Washington. Sadly some people here are crazy religious where they at times judge you very harsh. The ladies here are at times very stuck up and choosy with the people they hangout with while others are very chill and don't care what people care about.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The only fraternity at the school is Kappa Sigma, a community/ leadership group that gives back to the community more than they take. They are a decent group of people who have been known to deal with habitat for humanity, cleaning up down town ellensburg, collecting caned food for the fish food bank, and others. They have been featured in the universities news paper, on the central facebook pages and have been known around campus. They at times have fundraisers and get together with friends and the community. Although online it says that greek life is non existent on campus, those claims are wrong and written by people who don't really socialize or go to this school.

Athletics: Not that great with intramural sports and could be better. Sadly Varsity seems to be taking more and more money from other departments even though central dousn't always surpass other colleges and ends up on the less portion.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: have yet to live off campus but my friends ave places far from campus and it's very hard to find a reasonable price.

Off-Campus Dining: The dining is good but very pricey to eat out. If you get to on a saturday morning go to the palace and order the eggs Benedict with stuffed hash browns, the best hang over breakfast. An the pasta company's steak salad is very filling compared to price due to it basically giving you giant bowl of salad with a large steak on top. An at el caporal make sure to get the special chocolate en mole enchiladas, they are the best. An if you can take the burrito challenge at fedilinas, its a awesome memory. An at wing central do the hell wing challenge, they knocked down the recipe in recent years but its still hot. Sadly most meals are about 6.00-8.00 for a regular meal and drink.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Most parties here aren't that well off. Some of these parties through the year are actually very nice to have but most like the ones at the rugby house really suck because unless you are a hot girl you never get in, and by hot girl i mean hot. An really although some rumors have said that this school is the party school it actually isn't and that is in fact WSU compared to the small parties held here.

3 College Junior

Administration: When it comes to drugs the school is very strict due to it being a federally funded university whom still have banned it. Although they don't really care about under aged drinking as long as you are not sway walking or drunk driving. Sadly they give you parking citations for not having a parking pass or parking in the teachers parking lot or parking places over night, which is really stupid considering how much we pay for tuition and them thinking we owe them something more. An well legally they don't have a right to actually fine you or give you an actual parking ticket so you can just tare up the tickets. An park on campus so long as you make sure they don't tow you. An the reason they are strict on noise is due to the towns noise regulation, which cops try to be jerks at times listening in on houses trying to give out tickets. An due to those noise regulations everything in town closes down early except for the bars, which is very annoying and unfitting for the town.
