Overall Experience: I mostly got help from my assigned advisor for an internship. I didn't need to go to career services for help.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Some dorms don't look very comfortable. I like the housing better because it has a bigger space and a bit more affordable than the dorms.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Football is a big thing so we try to show support.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: CWU is the best because it is a very divers place.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's pretty good. It's really nice for transfer students with AA degrees.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience with the courses and professors at Central. They have all been friendly and accommodating. They were knowledgeable in their respective fields and enjoyed teaching there. The variety is good there as well, a number of different courses are offered that range in diversity. The sizes are my favorite, ranging from 20 to maybe 60 students. The most I've had in a class was 100 maybe, and that was a 100 level class as well as a general requirement. All my other classes were an average of 30 students which really helps leaning and makes you more comfortable to ask questions in class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't gone to the career center for questions with my degree quite yet but i did talk with the department in which my career is rooted. They were extremely helpful and gave me quite a few resources to connect with others interested in this my field along with some alumni that were in that field as well.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe at my school. I have never worried or had a fear of being sexually assaulted. The only time i get nervouse on campus is walking around late at night by my self and even then they have these blue button stains around campus that, when pressed, activate an alert system that calls the police and makes sound. Though I've never had to use them, its comforting having them there.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living in the dorms! They were defiantly a little tight at times but it was a great experience i would for sure recommend. Its simple living and the environment is very accepting and friendly. All the RA's were always willing to help if need be and took their jobs seriously but not overly so. Living in the dorms helped make my first year so enjoyable.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't personally play sports but i do like to go to the games. There are a lot of people that attend the varsity sports, especially basketball and football. Intramural is a big hit on campus as well. I attended a lot of my friends games that were playing on the teams and it was always great to watch. The gym for the non-athletes is well equipped and i find it meets all my exercise needs for sure!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy it there. The environment is very friendly and welcoming. It is easy to find help to answer questions when need be and everyone is willing to assist. It is a great place to learn about your major and also yourself. I have really found myself my first year there, along with receiving a good education.

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.
