What is your overall opinion of this school?

I LOVE Western. I am a senior this year and I have enjoyed my four years here. The weather is AMAZING. And I don’t mean to brag but the psychology department is the best. WOU offers a large array of classes and accommodate a lot of schedules. We are an extremely safe campus with campus security 24/7 that is probably my favorite part about WOU! We have numerous resources, sports teams, clubs, cafe/lunch spots, staff is friendly! It’s easy to feel like you belong here because we always try our best to be the kindest and inclusive! Come to Western and check us out, you won’t regret it! Go Wolves! And don’t forget, on Wednesday we wear our WOU apparel!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will be attending in the Fall of 2020, WOU is my dream school. I love the programs it has to offer, and the way I felt stepping on the campus for the first time. I wish there were more scholarship options, but I am grateful for ALL of the help my advisor has been giving me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Oregon has to be the worst university I have ever attended or at least someone of my stature. Coming from a conservative and evangelical Christian point, I was frowned upon since the school has opposite core values they represent. Teachers make us do some assignments that are strongly opposed to what I believe in. I explain to the teacher why it’s wrong and yet doesn’t care. I did the assignment anyway but it was terrible what I had to read and watch. Because of who I am the other students don’t like to be with or talk to me. They are not open minded for me to talk to them but rather their own friends they made who share the same interests. I ate in their cafeteria once and while their food is ok, they are extremely overpriced. I would rather go out to a nice restaurant for myself and pay the same amount of food that go to their cafeteria. Luckily there is a Subway nearby so I go there on an occasion to eat. I have never stayed there on campus or stayed the night so I have no comment about it and depends on the person and what you have like budget for instance. One silver lining about WOU is they have a great library and computer room. I can get my homework done there with peace and quiet and staff there are happy to help. The takeaway from this is that if you love the Lord and your beliefs are lined as a conservative, avoid this University at all costs. Otherwise you’ll be fine.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Oregon University is a university that is not to big nor too small. The campus is very compact and inviting, as well as very maintained. The class sizes are small enough to allow students individual time with teachers. The town is small, but accessible and easily comfortable to adjust to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I generally liked WOU, The feel and ambiance is great. Class sizes are small, so there is always the opportunity to connect with your professors and get one on one advise if you need it. Plus, the free on campus tutoring is great resource for those who need it. A variety of classes offered at different times allowing one to make their schedule with moderate ease. A few negatives are the location. Although fairly close to bigger cities like Salem, Portland, Corvallis, or the coast, Monmouth itself is super small and there is not much to do around there. Additionally, although they are partnered with OHSU for their nursing program, it is evident that professors and advisers are still getting into the hang of what advise to give students who are pursuing nursing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school if you're majoring in education, criminal justice, or ASL. It is a small sized school in a small town so there isn't much to do, especially if you don't have your own transportation. However, tuition and cost of living is relatively cheaper than living in the city or suburban area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this campus. It's a smaller campus but that just means that everyone is very close and social with one another. The faculty and staff are always friendly and accommodating to everyone. The teachers are great at explaining subjects in class. If a student needs extra help with a subject, the teacher generally reviews over the content in a different. They do this without talking down to the student and that's extremely rare.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a beautiful campus with a large library. While I was attending they finished a new science building so my last year I got to attend my science classes in new lecture rooms and laboratories. The science labs are great and there are several computer labs to use if you don't have a laptop or printer. The professors are knowledgable and friendly and keep their office hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Oregon University is a university that I would recommend to fellow students and friends. It provides many opportunities academically as well as socially. Western provides courses that enhance a student's desired major as well as incorporates experiences that will be applicable to life outside of college. There are also a variety of majors to choose from. I am greatly enjoying my experience at Western Oregon University!
