WSU is a large, well known university -- located out in the sticks! Nice campus. Pretty hilly. Parking can be a problem.

I was accepted to several high level universities and chose to attend Washington State University for several reasons.......the quality of education, the friendliness of fellow students & locals, the amazingly beautiful campus & clean buildings, the safe environment, the beauty of the countryside & things to see within a 2 hour radius, and the administration treats students as people, not...

This took me by surprise as I had been there 30 years ago in the dead of winter and could not figure out why any student would ever want to go to WSU. But if you can handle bitter cold and driving wind in the winter, the campus is really nice. The sports facilities are top notch. The town is... More

It is a blend of old and new. They have kept the ambiance of the older campus and blended it with the new.

Washington State University is first class. A real college in a real college town with a broad choice of studies. A great engineering and architecture program, vet school, and a national leader in agricultural studies; but also well known for communications, hospitality, and business studies. On top off all of this is Cougar Pride and a school spirit that screams... More

A nice place to visit. The campus is beautiful and you will get your workout climbing hills! It's nice to see newer buildings built to blend with the older architecture.

an inviting campus and very nice people. Interesting to note that one sees - smokers at U of I just down the road. WSU has as many majors as one could want! For me, accessibility of the people in the administration is a big draw. Check out the Honors College! Well Worthwhile

I am an alum and loved the campus when I was there and today I admire and amazed by the continued growth of this great University. A visit to Ferdinand's for ice cream or their world famous Cougar cheese is a must. The campus is situated as the core of Pullman and plays a big part in the community. I... More
