Western Washington University Top Questions

Describe the students at your school.


Students at WWU are very diverse and very unique. There are about 4 big christian fellowships on campus who are very present. Most students are very outdoorsy and love to go on weekend trips up to the Cascade Mountains or to the San Juan Islands. Bellingham is the perfect location for any sort of outdoor activity. Students typically wear flannels on the daily and Birkenstocks or Chacos. Formal dances/attire is very rare which might be due to the fact that Western doesn't have any sororities or fraternities. Students vote every year on if we would like to bring them back, but it is always turned down.


They are nice individuals but most lack a deep sense of motivaiton.


They mind their own business, talk only with friends, and remain silent if they don't know anyone.


My classmates have a very defined sense of themselves and of their personal style. Many of my peers, though definitely not all, are outdoorsy and extremely environmentally conscious and friendly and can be seen with a mason jar in tow. The students at Western are for the most part very friendly and hold doors for others (which I suppose it how I measure if someone is polite or not) and are approachable.


Western students are enviromentally friendly.


Incredibly dedicated and hardworking people who know how to have fun and make beautiful music that touches the lives of all around them who have the opportunity to experience it.

A fun-loving person who doesn't mind a bit of rain while firguring out what they're goals are in life.


Classmates were open-minded, friendly and ready to learn.


My classmates are very smart, but most of them are still locked in a high school mentality, which is something that will change, and they will change with it, and when they do, they will really be amazing classmates.




I would describe my classmates for the most part as hippies because most everyone around me is alwasy looking to save energy and reduce their consumption of non-recyclable items.


Western's students are very diverse. You can find a group supporting just about any idea or belief, making it very easy to find someone to connect with and befriend. Most of the students are from the Seattle area, however, there are many students that are from all over the country as well as the world.


My classmates are a diverse group of interesting and engaging individuals.


My classmates are extremely smart and helpful.


Western students tend to be friendly, enthusiastic, and active.


There are many prominent clubs on campus such as LGBT, religious clubs, and even running club! At the beginning of every school year, there is a huge info fair in red square. During my freshman year, I found out that Western had a running club and joined it! I met awesome people and had the chance to learn about Bellingham outside of campus.


At Western, we are very open and everyone is welcome here. I do not think a student here ever feels out of place because people are just so welcoming and friendly. If there were four tables at the dining hall, all of those tables would be mixed with a variety of students, no stereotypes or anything. You just meet a lot of different people and gain friends from a ton of different backrounds.


I think that Western has a pretty diverse group of students. I believe this shows through the clubs that we have at Western. We have clubs for LGBT students, clubs for students of diverse races, and religious clubs. Many of them commonly have booths around red square or vendor's row to provide information to other Western students and promote awareness of their groups. I think that Western is a very accepting place and pretty much every student would fit in here - that's one reason I love this school so much! Students wear a lot of different types of clothing to class. Overall, I would say the most common way of dressing is the "hipster/indie/bohemian/hippie" style of dress. Lot's of big, loose sweaters, leggings, flannels, beanies, dresses, and TOMs. It would probably be safe to say that at least 75{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} of the school's population owns a pair of TOMs :) Students at Western are very into both the style of TOMs and the moral reasoning behind them (with every pair you buy, another pair is donated to a child in need). However, a large portion of students go to school in just sweats or yoga pants as well. It's pretty much up to you! I've never seen anyone judged on their style of clothing, and we have many students who dress very eclectically!


come from a variety of backgrounds: racial/ethnic, sexual orientation, etc. It's a very diverse school filled with people. There's always a chance to meet people with the Associated Students, a hub that consists of the student government and student-run clubs. It's easy to meet people at school and develop lifelong friendships, should you pursue them here.


everyone (for the most part) is really accepting here and dosn't judge other people at all for the way they look, their religion, their culture, etc. most students wear jeans, sweats, bball shorts, or yoga pants to class with a sweatshirt (and girls with little to no makeup), like I said we don't really dress up here. Some people go for the hippie grunge look, but when a girl walks across campus with her ass almost hanging out of her dress, bare legs, and high heels, all dolled up, people look at her as if she is insane! its windy and cole here and we are tired college students not really trying to impress anyone. On the weekends when people go to parties they wear nice tops with jeans, costumes, or cute dresses, but still nothing skanky. I feel like the majority of people who go here are from washington.


The students here are personable and somewhat friendly when it comes to school work and academia, however for socializing its a rare thing to become friends with someone randomly from class.
