The career center on campus is very effecient and provides ample opportunities to students. Tips for networking and interview preparation are readily offered, and the process for finding internships was hassle free and very successful! The alumni network is strong, and alumni from all fields visit campus often to lecture on their experience in the field and provide networking opportunities. The resources available to students are remarkable!

The off-campus housing selection that Walla Walla offers is really great because there are so many options to choose from. There are three different kinds of apartments, with different accommodations, different sizes and of course, different prices. Also, there are several houses, for if you want to live with several people. They are all walking-distance from campus and very affordable. It is so convenient because you are free from curfew, from having to eat the food in the cafeteria, and you don't have to put up with distractions that you would at the dorm. You live by your own rules!

I have not lived in the campus housing, but spend much of my time with friends who do. The housing is a great deal for students, and the buildings are well maintained. The atmosphere is quiet and friendly, and the apartments are equipped with washing machines! The students like this feature a lot.

I spent two years in the dorms, and while this was also a good option, I did not enjoy the thin walls and somewhat constant noise.
