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.

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.

I'm a CWU freshmen living in Miesner and I absolutely love it! Campus food and get kinda boring (ahh but those chicken strips man!). I love all my professors I've had so far, they're all very friendly. My classes are great. I'm on the Equestrian team, although the school doesn't sponsor our sport, it's very much alive and welcome to anyone interested and joining the team! Go wildcats!
