I chose western Washington university because they offer a specific major program I want to pursue. I also wanted to stay in the Pacific Northwest for college. I love the opportunity for student activism and getting involved.
I like how my courses interact and relate to each other. Some people in my major complain that our studies are too broadly focused. We don't feel prepared enough for our careers. There are certain skills necessary for the types of jobs we will have, and we want more hands-on learning.
I thought I'd really like it since it's so close to so many outdoor activities and it is inexpensive. When it came down to it, this seemed like the best place for me out of the options I had. I knew people from high school going but not enough where it wouldn?t let me grow. I was really wrong and do not enjoy it here, but plenty of people love it.
It varies widely. Some of the curriculum for entry-level classes is pretty bad but I have not had any bad experiences with the upper-level course curriculum. Upper-level course offerings are restricted (some classes only offered once every 2 years) which can be frustrating.
The price was right, it was the perfect distance away from my home town (far enough my parents couldn't drop in unexpectedly) and they offered a lot of opportunities in my field that I have had the chance to explore - they loved up to what they told me!
The curriculum is very relevant to my studies and does not feel like a waste of money.
