What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly it was a good school. The classes were small like community college so there is a better opportunity for learning. The anthropology department had many caring professors who would meet outside class to discuss whatever. The party scene was fun as long as you know how to manage your time and say no when necessary. There were no security issues in the town of Ellensburg at all. The school was less expensive compared to other universities and gave me the same or better education. Central was honestly okay! Glad I went.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University is a great school to attend and I am looking forward to go there this fall. When it comes to academics I think they do really great academic wise and they want students to succeed. CWU is a friendly school and many of the students there are great especially if you are visiting or new there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University is the closest University to my hometown so the accessibility is great, it is a small college town so the community feels united in some way. The campus is very diversified and it always feel comfortable to be in class, teachers are always available to help and so is the staff. I always recommend and encourage my friends to apply and enroll at CWU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have dreamed of attending Central Washington University ever since I grew up visiting Ellensburg every holiday for my entire life. I grew up running around campus as a kid and talking to college girls at some nearby shops and stores. So when I received my acceptance letter, it was a dream come true (sorry for being so cliche). The students, the staff, and the area are all 10/10 and I would recommend this university to any high school senior that hasn't decided on a college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Central Washington is a really great college that can fit a wide variety of people. There are many of extra-curricular activities to join, lots of great on-site opportunities, and groups to be a part of everywhere you go. What I love most about Central is that the campus is laid back, making studying and getting stuff done very easy to focus on as well as relieving some stress.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally like central Washington university because classes are small, professors are caring and helpful, and you make more friends. The food is great and the staff is super helpful. Central also offers tutoring services to help students who are struggling or need any help on something that is confusing to them. Central tries to reach out to those who need help and they want to make things better for the students.

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...
