What is your overall opinion of this school?

I chose to pursue my Bachelor's degree in English at Central Washington University because it a small and quiet town where I'm better able to focus, plenty of recreation and healthy options for living, and our university has a good moral code. We may not be the biggest or richest university in the state, but we make up for it with the spirit of community.

I love CWU! It was my first and only choice of universities, I'm proud to be a wildcat! Every professor I've had so far has been awesome. The class sizes aren't huge and it's easy to get to know the professors if you make an effort. The campus is extremely safe as well as diverse.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I came from Eritrea to United States, I couldn't write, read, or speak any English. My freshmen year in high school was the most challenging year for me. I couldn't even speak English with the students. The only words I knew in English were "yes" or "no". When the teachers tried to explain the assessment for me, I couldn't understand any English. I was always trying my best to get better in order to accomplish my goals, which are both academic and athletic. Even though English is not my first language, I always try my best to improve my English when working towards my goals, which include earning a business degree to start a sports-related business or my own business importing Eritrean clothing and food. For example, I read a book for my little sister every night when she is falling asleep because it helps me to practice my English and it's good for my sister because she can read and write at the younger age. Second, I always help my mother, who doesn't have my father and who is always sick, since she doesn't speak any English. After school I work to help my mom and my siblings because my family is important more than anything to me. Third, I always focus on reading because if I read more I can write more. For example, reading helps with many things and it's very helpful to learning new vocabulary words. Finally, hard work helps me a lot because I see myself always getting better. In conclusion, I always believe that only hard work will allow me to achieve and be successful in my life. My athletic goals at the college level are to become an Olympic track and field runner and coach. The reasons I want to become a track and field runner and coach are the following: I hope to teach athletic technique; I like to help people when they are feeling bad and down; and I like to help people like me to learn English. I will continue to work hard in college when it comes to reaching both academic and athletic goals, so when I get to the end result I can make the best life for myself, and those in my community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University is a great school the teachers always make sure that the students understand the work that is going on in the classroom and they make themselves available to the students. I have not experienced any rude or violent behavior towards any of the other students. I like the people on the campus and staff my only complaint would be the 10 o'clock quiet hours and sometimes there isn't much to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University is a place of beauty, centered on the academic performance and happiness of the students. The town of Ellensburg is quite small and provides little to do outside of the campus, though the town is extremely safe and has many unique aspects. The professors centralize themselves on the success of their students and are extremely approachable. In terms of academics, this school is the one to attend if you have any concerns as to your success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my personal experiences, Central Washington University is a very approachable campus with many faculty and staff to help students with all of their needs. That being said, there are countless resources around the campus which are easily accessible for all students. The recreational center, known as the SURC, provides a fairly large variety of dining options, including a buffet on the weekends and a corner store providing microwavable meals, drinks, snacks, and other common necessities. In addition to that, there is the Wildcat Shop, filled with all the fan gear, tech, school supplies, and books any student could need. One thing in particular that Central does very well is keep their students busy. By busy, I simply mean by having a very nice recreational center with a four court gym, indoor track, cardio room with many exercise equipment, a three-story rock climbing wall, and many intramural sports students can get involved in. Overall, I am very satisfied with my experiences here at Central and would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to attend college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University is overall a great school. Most of the buildings are brick which gives the campus character. That being said Central is constantly building new learning environments for its students. The new science building was just finished and has key features such as a planetarium and a silent room. Now, a new math and computer science building is in progress as well as another dorm. Central works well with its students, taking what they say and molding it into new buildings, new style of teachings or new groups for students to join. Central Washington University listens and takes care to its students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love CWU. I was a music education major for three years, and endless phenomenal experiences as a part of that program. I'm transitioning into another major now, and as weird as that adjustment may be, I'm grateful for the highly qualified and helpful staff that we have in really every program here. I know I will be supported and taken care of no matter what.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Washington University is a great school for those looking for a more intimate public university that focuses on the students. The town is small and activities are more sparse than larger universities; however, your professors honestly care about your success and truly want you to go on to do things and represent the university well.
