After Central Washington University
- Very Good452
Throughout my duration of attending Central Washington University I have experienced a multitude of positive opportunities. The staff offer numerous opportunities to attend to receive help in any area in which I may be struggling in. This ultimately, has help my success rate excel. Not only are the academic success rates appealing the staff also keeps the campus extremely safe and clean. The campus police will provide escorts late at night if you are walking alone to ensure one's safety. Overall, I have only had positive experiences with this school and hope they are able to continue.

Everyone makes you feel so at home. The campus size is not too small nor too big. It is a perfect size. Class sizes are small so you get more individual attention from your professors. I like the food on campus, and there are many-many support systems on campus for everyone! CWU offers a lot of support. The tuition is on the high side for me, though.

This university was the perfect fit for me! Ellensburg is far enough from the city, but not too secluded. So I always feel like there's something to do. CWU has the perfect class sizes for people who enjoy getting to know their professors. I think my largest class had 80 people in it, and my smallest had 15. I work as an RA in the residence halls. So I can tell you that they are fantastic places to meet new people. My only complaint about this university is that there is not much school pride. But, the university is working hard to change that.
