What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far I like CWU. It is a very welcoming school with a large variety of opportunities. I love most of my classes and haven't had a class that I've not liked. The dorms are friendly, although a little loud when it is suppose to be quiet. The food is pretty good and there's a variety of options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Central Washington University because its close to home. And you go to class for approximately an hour every day. You have class almost every day besides the weekend. And you get to meet new people from different countries and states. My overall opinion of Central Washington University is that it is a medium school, can meet people who is from different cultures, and is close to home for some people (like me).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University has insufficient course availability to satisfy requirements, unhelpful professors, shallow curriculum; does not prepare you for the professional world, no financial support/resources, horrible student web interface/portal. The only positive aspect of this school is that the tuition is cheap. But remember, you get what you pay for!! My advice; keep looking! If you have decent grades, do not waste your time at CWU, there are lots of WA universities that are WAY better than this one...

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. There are ton's of opportunities with all the campus resources. The environment is so friendly and welcoming. There are so many clubs and recreational events to attend. The focus is on school, the student work hard and the professors are great. The professors are their for you and put you first even before course work. They are so helpful and have a passion for teaching. This is a great school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central is a medium sized college. Depends on what classes you have, most will be far away from each other and you'll have to speed walk or most will be close so you don't have to walk that much. They gives you ten minutes to get to classes. Sometime, when the teachers have nothing left to do or say, they would let you leave early. There's a lot of things to do. There's clubs, 5K runs, events, small shops close by the campus, café on campus, food trucks around there too, games to attend, a gym to use, and so on. Sure, there's people out here vaping and smoking, but they pretty much do that at night. I've never see anybody drinking alcohol. Probably because I don't get involve in the social life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school, especially if you still like the small town feel. There is always something happening on campus and plenty of out of class activities. No matter if it's a barbecue or a sports event, you can find campus life thriving! Academics are also amazing. Professors are willing to help out in and out of class, and if you can't make it to their office hours, they are usually willing to help find a time to meet you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University is a safe and fun school. There are so many activities to do, such as the recreational center and clubs. The academics are amazing, and the small class size allows for one-on-one time with the professors and time to ask questions. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone looking to apply.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think CWU is a great school for the small class sizes they offer, and the availability of the professors; however, I felt that they lacked in the availability of things to do on campus especially for upper classmen. Although they are trying to improve their on campus and off campus housing, currently, it is not the best. I would also like to mention that the financial aide office never truly knows what is going on, and will charge you for things that you don't know about until after graduation. Their tuition is cheap, but that comes at a cost.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely loved Central. It wasn't perfect but the campus was nice and easy to navigate. The town is small but friendly and the local food is really good, though there's not much variety. I liked the wide variety of programs and extra curriculars available-- the Student Union constantly had events going. Jobs are hard to come by just because the competition is fierce.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University is a smaller University but it is located in a smaller town, in my opinion the town is too small for the size of the university. There isn't many recreational activities to do but the ones that there is are quite fun. There aren't many stores here so if you're looking for a mall you'd have to commute.
