The Perfect Place for People of All Interests – While Lacey is a rather small city, there are several activities around and off campus that can keep students busy and entertained, including coffee shops, restaurants, parks, movie theaters, opportunities for volunteer service, and even an area for laser tagging right down the street from the University. There are even cultural activities to attend, such as the jazz festival, the dragon boat festival, and presentations done by groups visiting from different countries. The campus and surrounding community is very safe,there are plenty of stores surrounding the campus to shop at for your everyday needs, and the locals are quite friendly. There are several attractions that are a few hours away and excellent for day trips, such as the beautiful Chambers Bay golf course considered to be one of the best golf courses in the world, downtown Olympia and its farmers market, and the world-renowned Pike Place Market in Seattle. If you are an outdoorsy type, there are plenty of places to pique your interest, what with the many hiking trails on and off campus, and with Washington having several different environments, from beaches and deserts to forests and mountains. There is also a recreation center on campus with amazing gym equipment, and there's plenty of sports games to see during the school year. Go Saints!

Our athletic teams are not that great but still fun to attend! The workout facility is not that great at all, I really wish that it was much larger and there was just a better variety of everything. Weight room could definitely use upgrades. If we had better sports teams I feel that the school would be even more into the sports as well but right now we are a below average sports school.

The school is okay if you're choosing to enroll in either engineering or education (both of which also have issues, but are more funded than any other program at the school). However, if you choose any other major be prepared for subpar supplies in lab (if you even have enough lab equipment) and issues preparing for life after school. Like any school, some professors are absolutely amazing and make class both enjoyable and easy to learn, and other professors should consider another profession. The financial aid is pretty good, just make sure to regularly keep in touch with them so that there are no surprises. Also, make sure to really get a jump on registering for classes, and have a backup schedule handy to change to in case the classes are cancelled or more likely moved into another time slot after you register that you can't fit into the schedule.
