More affordable tuition, great disability resources, and academic support.
The dining services could use some improvement around accommodating dietary restrictions.
I love how friendly and helpful the staff and faculty are! The approachable nature of the professors helps students become comfortable interacting with superiors in a professional manner.
I feel all students should be aware of some of the pitfalls of communication with the university. Although the Student Services department is friendly, there is some disorganization in communication and time management.
I immediately felt at home when I toured the campus of CWU. All faculty and students are open and helpful.
I can't name anything I don't like at CWU.
What I love about Central Washington University is how the professors, staff members, and advisors are there for you every step of the way. You never feel like your alone by yourself. If you need help or have questions, they are ready for you and will help. Also, the overall social environment at Central Washington University is very welcoming. Everyone who comes to Central are able to find, discover, and be themselves in this safe and inviting environment.
For me personally, I haven’t experienced any negative issues or encounters. But, some students might see Central Washington University as a vastly growing school and potentially be overwhelmed by the rush of the campus. With that being said, with growing numbers just means more opportunities for individual students to grow.
It's been a little confusing and honestly a struggle to get all the boxes checked to get going. but now that I am settled in and in a groove I really enjoy CWU. Talk to profs and ask questions and don't be afraid to go to a football game or two and meet some new people!
The first month was rough. There are a lot of little pieces you have to watch for on your student platform and not a lot of opportunity for anyone to show you or teach you how to read it or what to look for. I know, now, for next quarter and next year but it was a little nerve-wracking when I'd get warning emails that I wouldn't get my funding or keep my on-campus job because a form wasn't submitted or box checked that I wasn't aware I needed.
I loved the community.
I didn't like the teaching.
