What kind of person should attend Western Oregon University?


A person who prefers smaller class sizes, and a small campus.


WOU is best for people who want personal attention, small classroom sizes, and a fast pace, but thorough, curriculum. With the wide variety of support systems for students with disabilities Western is a great school for any type of learner/student. What is very appealing about WOU is their specialty programs; for example WOU is a well known and respected school for ASL studies and interpreting, Education, and Special Education.


Anyone looking for a positive college experience at a small university that has a lot to offer!


In my opinion, I think a person that like the rain and small classes should attend to this school. We have a variety of different weather, but most of the time, we get a lot of rain. Also, this university is small compare to our Oregon universities. WOU offers small classes and it is very helful because one can get a lot of attention from the professors. I like like to know exaclty what our assignments or exams will be based on. Therefore, I like getting the opportunity to ask as many questions during class.


I would imagine that someone who came froma small school would enjoy this school because it is something they are used to. Even someone in the educatioon, ASL, or nursing program would come here because those programs are thriving here.


A student that is truly interested in a good education, someone who wants to be involved in their school, and someone who is interested in developing leadership skills should consider attending Western Oregon University.


A person that likes to see familiar faces but yet new faces as well, around campus, a person that likes to be involved with school activities, a person that likes a class size to be about 20-25 students, a person that enjoys their professors recognizing them in the coffee shop and saying hi and professors getting to you know as an individual and your interests.


Someone who wants to be close to home but not too close, make friends, work hard at school, and have fun. It's a really great school for almost every type of student, people here come from all different walks of life and that is part of what makes this university so interesting and progressive.


Only a person who is comfortable in a small town with the nearest city 20 minutes away and a small campus, with only 6000 students. I would recommend this for anyone who doesnt like crowds, large complicated campuses and/or would like to get to know everyone and see a familiar face when you walk around.


You should attend this school if your the type of person who likes small classes where the teacher actually knows your name.
