Academics: You get what you pay for. If you are in a STEM major expect to be challenged.

Academics: The professors are mostly enthusiastic and provide help. The curriculum is rigorous while having flexibility in teaching styles. The workload is appropriate, and special study options are available. There are also popular study areas although there could be more.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Some times the workload get's pretty big but most of the time it's manageable.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are a lot of different areas to study so a student can find a field that they love. There are plenty of professors that teach a certain course which allows students to have a wide range of courses that they can take. The registration process is also easy since you can have classes in your myWSU cart and just click enroll when your registration date comes. However, the process where a first year freshman who has the credits of a sophomore, waiting for the freshman registration date is rough since many classes are already filled by upperclassmen.
