3 College Sophomore

Administration: It's overall good, I am not on campus so I don't have as much of a context to answer these questions.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Just eat lunch at Western Deli a few times a week.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I would have appreciated more emails notifying me of when the deadlines were.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Pros about off-campus housing is living near the school so you don't have to drive to school and its a safe environment to live by. The cons about it is that some house are a little expensive. Other

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dinning would be better if we had student discount and if we had more are night options.

Campus Food: The foods they serve us if repetitive and the fruits is decent could be fresher.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is okay and the social atmosphere is great everyone is friendly here.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is awesome. You don't have to deal with RA's bugging you about noise level and you have a lot of freedom to do pretty much whatever it is that you want to do. It's also SO much cheaper to live off-campus than it is to live in the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's about five different places you could go and eat off-campus, so the variety isn't that great but its fairly cheap and they serve good food so I'm fine with the ways things are. of course it would be great to have a taco bell nearby or a denys...

4 College Freshman

Administration: From my observations the only "strictness" that the public safety enforce is drug consumption and alcohol use in dorms. With everything else I would say they are pretty lenient.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process went really smoothly in my case, I got all the money that i was awarded. But for example my roommate had a complete hassle trying to get all of her financial aid to disburse, she had to wait the whole term for the money to go through.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most of the parties are really good, the host provide sufficient alcohol for everyone, and the atmosphere is pretty chill.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There isn't much of a variety to chose from at the dining halls, but the food is fairly cheap so I guess that evens it out.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are small and not very comfortable.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food is well priced for college students.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Their strict for bad things only.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was helpful for it being my first time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is good, there is many options it just depends on what ever the student gets.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is amazing, I have a great RA that is very helpful. And the community of my hall is amazing, as well as the overall school's community.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food served on campus is quite frustrating, I wish they would serve healthier food and entailed more than just salad and overly expensive fruit. When it comes to the fatty food, it is significantly cheaper. The obvious choices of a budgeted student would be to buy the fatty food for cheap instead of the healthier food, to save money. It is kind of disappointing that we can't even get healthy and affordable food on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Personally I love the classes provided at WOU, the class sizes are just about the same as high school classes; which definitely helps the transition. With the proportional class sizes it is easier to pay attention, ask questions, be involved and actually retain the information being taught to you. The dorms are where my positivity starts a downward spiral; in the Barnum dorms it is nearly impossible to meet as many new people as you would in Heritage or Ackerman. Barnum is very spacious and perfect to live in, I only had one other roommate might I have you. I wish I could've met more people and created a more positive freshman year.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is not traditional. The sorority is very unfair in the rushing, and initiation processing.
