5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love it in Ellensburg and I love Central Washington University. It provides me with a perfect balance of all the things I desire in life. I love working out, studying, and socializing, and CWU is perfect for that. I have felt safe here from the day I moved here, and I have met people that I believe I will have life long friendships with. The faculty and teachers are extremely helpful and really strive to get you where you want to be.

Health & Safety: When I very first moved to Ellensburg, I was completely by myself so obviously safety was a big concern for me. I feel very safe on campus, and it seems like when there is an issue, the campus police are very attentive.

Campus Housing: Although I do not live on campus, finding off campus housing was easy and fun. We have many different options, from dorms, to 9 room houses, to regular houses, to apartments. I chose to live in a 9 bedroom house due to the fact that I was a transfer student, and I wanted to meet new people. It was one of the best options for me, as I am good friends with the roommates in the house.

Overall Experience: My school experience so far is fabulous. Although I transferred here just last quarter, I am throughly enjoying all of my classes, the people that I have met and attend Central Washington University, and I love Ellensburg. I originally applied at CWU because it was a university in a small town. Since I am from a small town, I thought this would be perfect, and make for an easier transition into a new chapter of my life. If i had to do it all over again, I would of gone to Central right out of high school. Although I don't think I would be as ready as I am now, I think transferring as a freshman would be a good way to meet new people, and form new relationships.

Athletics: Student athletics at Central Washington University are superb. They provide just the right balance between non-athletics, and athletics making the various gyms and fields easily accessible to all students. Although the varsity athletic programs here at Central are sought after, the club and intramural programs are just as fun and competitive. I throughly enjoy being a part of the athletics and club women's soccer, and it creates great ways to meet new people as a new student, forms life long relationships with your peers, and makes the school year fun and exciting.

Health & Safety: So far I've felt safe here even when its dark outside and I'm by myself. But i can't speak for others. Theres buttons all around campus to push if you don't feel safe. Campus police station is very close, easy access to report anything.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The class size is great its not too big and easily talk to your professor. The subjects are great.

Campus Housing: I live in a single and think its okay, great size for a single. I have heard nothing but bad things about having roommates. Too small of an area to share a living space with someone. The laundry should be free, these rooms are already expensive. The thing that sucks is sharing a tiny tiny tiny kitchen with other people that don't know how to clean it, and also going down to different floors to use the laundry room and/or kitchen.

5 College Student

Athletics: This schools student population takes great pride at being supportive at games. Students are always attending, and cheering on. The gyms and weight rooms are being used very efficiently.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Its pretty good for the most part, I think the most expensive year you will have would be freshman year. The food plans are way to expensive. And well, parking I think should be free for staff and students.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Since I live out of town I do not actively participate in the school games and things like that. I would really like to because they are a big part of the school. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend but it always sounds fun and exciting when friends talk about it.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am a running start student and so far it has been an up and down experience for me. I guess you could say that even though I had the tests scores I wasn't very prepared but now that I have been here for three-quarters it is starting to get better. I have been able to get the things that I needed done and used the resources available. I wish I would have known about all the things the school offered during the first quarter.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: the police are really nice and friendly. always around to help or say hi.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: i work for the intramural sports department so i get to have fun in this field, but i see a lot of room for improvement for all departments of athletics on this campus.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: i have been doing well academically, but i am having the terrifying high school bullying experience that no one deserves and its really kicking me down. i need to leave.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: RA's for the most part suck. The living conditions are awesome and couldn't ask for better.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: I feel like a Greek system would help this school out a lot and make it much more popular

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not very many people attend the sporting event because they aren't as hyped up as other schools

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People are great but there isn't always something to do and the weekends are pretty dead because everyone goes home.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Its good. Though there could always be improvement.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. The campus police are always patrolling and if there is a problem there are emergency phones located throughout campus that will alert the police to come. Every once in a while you will hear of something that happened, but it is usually off campus. Probably the biggest concern on campus is theft. Though this usually only happens when people leave there stuff somewhere. The surrounding town is very safe too.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The General Ed Requirements can be boring at times and some are a little too easy like English 101 and 102, but once you get past those and into you major it gets a lot better. I chose Accounting and it has been great! The teachers are super friendly and actually care weather you succeed in your classes. The Accounting major is challenging, but prepares you very well for the real world.
