College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Honestly, in my apartment search, I'm kind of overwhelmed. There are local property management companies, but I don't understand the process.

Administration: I'm still at North Idaho College, however, I applied to be an RA at Western and they are strict about alcohol.

College Senior

Party Scene: I don't attend parties. They're too risky. If I ever do stuff, it's privately with small pods of friends in safe environments.

Campus Housing: I have lived on campus for two years now and it's very handy in getting to class. Overpriced, yes, but the staff does need to be paid. :)

College Student

Athletics: I don't actually know because I don't do a varsity sport.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off-campus, so I don't really know the quality of off campus housing.

Administration: When its quite hours at the university, they really mean quite hours.

College Student

Party Scene: I don't go to parties at all so I don't have an idea how the party scene is like at Western.

5 College Student

Scholarships: They offered my two scholarships and a good amount of grants that I needed. I only had to take out a small subsidize loan for this academic year.

3 College Student

Campus Food: The campus food is okay sometimes. I do enjoy the salad bar and the build your own sandwich station.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Western is a great university that focuses on Undergrads. The bay is beautiful and there are many activities that people can do in town.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am looking for a house now and it is difficult because the houses close to campus are pretty expensive but the cheaper houses are inconveniently far away from campus.

Off-Campus Dining: I think that the variety of off campus dining is good and I think that all of the restaurants are a reasonable distance away from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I get along well with the administrators I am in contact with and I think that their enforcement on rules is very reasonable.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't go to many parties and when I do it is at a friend's house off campus. I plan events for hall council and they are fun. I don't think that there are too many parties that it causes a problem but I do think there are enough for people who want to party.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My financial aid always went through on time. I never had to worry about it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I like that I have dining dollars to spend at the cafes or markets on campus. I don't normally like the dining halls food options and usually stick to pizza or a burger which gets tiring. I also do not think that the quality of food is worth about ten dollars per meal even if it is buffet style.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Overall the community is good. People are friendly and it is easy enough to make new friends or start up conversations. Hall Councils plan events every week for residents. Housing is convenient because of how close it is to classes and applying for a dorm and roommate was easy. The only problem is how expensive housing is.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My teachers have been wonderful. I have loved my classes. Working with administrators and even my advisor has not been a pleasant experience, I would even say condescending. My teachers, however have been wonderful and helpful. I have been working with a study abroad advisor and he has been ever available. The classes are great, the teachers are great, administration is a nightmare.

College Junior

Greek Life: I have no idea what a "Greek" is. I have never heard of this.

College Junior

Athletics: I pay absolutely no attention to sports.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live in another town, two hours away, therefore I can only tell you what I have learned while researching for my own apartment in the area;

Depending on where you live the cost of living will be different, obviously. I was warned the apartments right near the campus near the arboretum was where people are often mugged, and Samish Way is another place to avoid. Apartments are around $650.00 monthly or more in the area, that is an average. It is better to live off campus though, because it is less expensive. Avoid shopping at Haggen as it is the most expensive place, but since it is next to the campus, it is easy and most people don't know that there is another grocery store a few blocks away that is less expensive. There are a lot of housing options, you just need to look around the area, parking on campus is near impossible on some days. Better to go to a park and ride, take a bus. Your student ID will double as a parking pass and if it isn't registered then it's only $1 to ride
