WHAT I LIKED

As a global student, I have never felt left out of college life at WSU. The administration and social programs work hard to make sure all students feel like valued members of this unique community. The flexibility of Global learning has allowed me to go back to school full time while working full time. The balance can be tricky but it well worth it in the end.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I would like to see more classes offered to Global students, while I understand the limitations of certain hands-on courses there are still many that could be transitioned to online.

WHAT I LIKED

The amount of resources available at every corner of campus. WSU provides a lot of help from tutors to quiet study places all helping you to succeed in your academics

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are a few professors that have a poor ability to adapt and adjust to their students. If the students are struggling some teachers don't provide the additional help or have the availability to get help.

WHAT I LIKED

There are many clubs to connect with people who have similar interests as you. Also, there are many social events like movie nights to meet new people. The advisors are extremely helpful as well as the teachers.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Honestly, nothing. I wish they had more Master's Degree programs but that’s all.

WHAT I LIKED

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus is all hills, and depending on the department, the buildings are awful. If you're a chem student, the department is awful. Better for students more interested in frats and sororities than academics, and off-campus housing is abysmal and overpriced. Very limited job opportunities and you're an hour and a half away from anything.
