College Senior

Guys & Girls: It appeared no more profession or mature than a two your college or even high school.

College Senior

Administration: N/A. Not an on-campus student at this time.

College Senior

Health & Safety: I wasn't an on-campus student for very long. I can't comment on this section.

College Senior

Majors: My internship experience came with my two year college education, not with my undergraduate education. I had two different internships in two areas that I took part in during my time at my two year college. They were great internships and I took so much from them. It made me appreciate hands-on/on-the-job learning and training that much more. It was pretty much like working a part time/full time entry job. I was treated as an equal with work, not as a peon, like I am in school. The time commitment is like any job. You are committing yourself to that job and should be respectful with being on time and using your time wisely while at work. Although I was treated equally, I was still a student in school and was only given work that my skills were capable of completing while learning new skills on the job. My only concern about finding an internship now is that I'm permanently staying where I am currently located and do not plan to look anywhere else. My other, and major, concern is my current undergrad school is making things difficult for me to graduate this coming spring and it's putting a damper and halt on my drive to apply for internships this winter out of my own desire, not as a requirement through the school.

Campus Housing: The dorms vary, but the differences between the cheaper and the more expensive ones are pretty big. The older buildings are less than bare essentials, and leave very little space for personal items.

Off-Campus Housing: I have heard negative things about it

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Ah, the off-campus dining! There are plenty of great restaurants, and since the town is fairly small, they are easy to get to! Notable mentions include: The Tav, Ellensburg Pasta Co, Sugar Thai, and Wings Central. There are quite a few other greats, but I am failing to remember their names. The prices range from $5 to $15 on average.

College Senior

Greek Life: I never noticed a Greek community around campus. In my three years at Central, I never spoke with a student who claimed to be part of a fraternity or sorority.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The health and safety department on campus is fantastic! They are very active in making sure all students feel safe and know what to do in a bad situation. I personally never sought help through the health and safety departments, but they had a great presence on campus. Campus crime was often low, and the patrolling officers made for a safe feeling environment.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: There are so many opportunities and so much help being an education major. Everyone wants you to succeed. So far, the workload is not very heavy, unless you're taking a lot of credits, and there are plenty of opportunities to help you get farther just looking in the education building.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It always depends on where you live. Wendell Hill and Barto are the nicest on campus, but I believe everyone should have their year in a "dorm" dorm, like Alford-Montgomery or any of the Besettis. Though they're quite "well loved," they're not bad for first year living, and you get to know people pretty quick. Housing is usually pretty efficient and quick when it comes to your rooms or moving out of them. The process is pretty clear cut, especially if you want to live in the residence halls the following years. All of the residence halls are close to campus/on it, so the most difficultly you'll ever get out of living on campus is perhaps walking an extra five minutes- everything is walking distance.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Overall, I have had no bad run-ins with administration. All are kind and friendly and helpful, particularly if you're not really doing anything wrong. They are pretty clear on the rules, even if they're lenient with some of them.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't heard much about anything that occurs on campus. If anything, there's light bike/tire theft, or vandalism. The school takes crime very seriously. I feel pretty safe on campus, even going through it in the dark.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Though there are quite a few places to eat off campus, if you don't have a car, it's rather difficult to get to many of the good ones or the fast food ones. The closest ones are cheap, however.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't go to parties, and most seem to be thrown on the weekends. The school also does not seem to be a party school, but the parties that do get thrown seem to be pretty wild from what I've heard. People seem to bond over these parties, and there are always stories of support from person to person, so it's not been a negative thing here.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: What fraternities there are on the campus are academic, and there are no sororities. The "Greek Life" simply isn't here. There are no frat houses, there are no frat boys, and there aren't fraternities in particular that seem to throw parties.
