Western Washington University is a mid-size university located in the most upper left corner of the United States. This school has a grounded and accepting atmosphere for all students. Western's appreciation for nature and the environment creates a positive impact of the values and actions of its students. I'm glad to be a student at a school that truly cares for its student body and has an abundance of resources to exemplify it.
