3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics don't seem like a big deal here. Our teams are decent, I think, but it isn't like the Ducks.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Very small school. Classes are generally pretty small - I've never had a class with more than 60 students. There are plenty of campus jobs and the food is decent. There isn't much to do in Monmouth but there are some decent places to eat and Salem is only a 20 minute drive away. I love it here!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have 24/7 public safety officers who work hard to keep our campus safe. The office is located near campus and anyone is allowed to go there if they are in trouble or feel unsafe. Our health care facilities are available to all students and has easy access.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the courses that are offered here and like most of my professors. I was able to take the courses I needed so far and had professors who taught the course materials well. I feel that I am really getting my money's worth with these courses because I'm learning not only the materials of the course, but materials that will help me in the real world as well. I like how there are lots of elective courses that allow you to explore other subjects and count towards your degree.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing on campus for first year students is okay. We have lots of programs that are provided to help them transition into college. Social events are put on for residents, but sometimes they aren't well advertised. The rooms are spacious enough for the amount of people that live in them and the common areas are well kept.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics on our campus has great support from the school and community. Our teams perform fairly well and have nice equipment. For the non athletic students, like me, the gym available for us is fairly new and well taken care of. Lots of intramural and club sports are offered for both genders and has large turnouts.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm glad I chose to come to Western Oregon University because I feel that this is the perfect environment for me. The class sizes range from 30 to 15 students, which makes it an ideal learning environment. I am able to know my professors on a first name basis and feel comfortable enough to approach them whenever I need help. Academically, the courses are somewhat challenging, but I do feel that they are preparing me for the real world. I like how there are lots of programs and extra curricular activities available for students. The student body is very friendly and welcoming, it made the transition into college much easier. Also, because I'm from Hawaii, being part of the Hawaii Club allowed me to still have a home away from home, which is always comforting when in a new place on your own. I really enjoy my time here at Western and wouldn't want to have it any other way.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I do think that the dry policy is a challenge to most students who think that they can get away with sneaking booze on to campus grounds. I know that they RA's work hard to prevent this and I also know that it is mainly one building that has the most concerns for troublemakers.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes will vary on the major and the course. This last term I was able to be in a class of only 10 people, the same term I also had a class with 60 people in it. Just depending on what the course is being taken the class will change in size.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I do think that the services for students to be employed work very hard and the people that work there are good at their jobs. I do think that the teaching majors do get a bit more priority then other majors but graduating as a teaching major is what Western is known for.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have to say that my first year on campus was a good experience. I believe that the residence hall that I live in is the most friendly and non-hostile out of any of the halls within the building. It does feel like home away from home in my hall but that is only me and I don't know about other buildings.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek life, the only thing that I do know is that the school did get approval for another sorority that just started this year. I also know that certain clubs are butting heads with the newer sorority due the the similar function that they both server in the community.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I do think that the Athletic department does take priority over all clubs on campus. I do think that this is a problem for other clubs that are in need of funds, however the success of the men's basketball team this year will lead to even more funding into the athletic programs.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is small but the community around it is good. I do think that the school will have problems in the coming years, due to the lack of enrollment that all Oregon schools are currently going through.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I do not know yet. When I move there I will know more, to an extent. I will be living off campus with my son and attending classes.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I cannot wait to begin attending classes on the WOU campus.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I am just assuming due to pictures on the website. I move there in 2 months.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I haven't been there yet.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't begun yet, so I am feeling very optimistic.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The degree that I am pursuing is shown to be top ranked at this school. I found the ASL/English interpretation program on a list of top 3 in the country. I am thrilled to start and think that I will be looked upon highly by future employers with a degree from WOU.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have already begun to receive email alerts keeping me aware of the security measures on campus. I can tell that there is a focus on student safety and it is of importance to this campus.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Pictures look beautiful and student look happy. I do to personally know.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not sure about these answers I will know more when i begin classes on this campus. I have been accepted, but have not begun.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am moving from Arizona to Oregon to attend this school. I am very excited. Two more months.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have not begun on this campus as yet.
