    I did not take advantage of "job fairs" at the college or alumni events. I went out on my own to find jobs in the alc. treatment field.

    5 Rated January 2016

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Fine Arts, Class of 2007

    It offers a traditional university experience, with tens of thousands of students, staff, and faculty all living, working, and learning together. That kind of diversity allows students to grow and flourish away from whatever background they came from and find their own path. The tools and "networking options" that are available literally anywhere are available here. It's what a student chooses to do with the opportunities that matters.

    There is a lot of school spirit at Washington State. It might be attributed to the school's relatively small student body compared to other Pac-12 schools.

    5 Rated January 2016

    Traditional and non- traditional. Diverse.

    Everything was incredibly up-to-date regarding technology. The dorms and classrooms were quite nice. The dining halls lacked healthy food options.

    I was not interested in Greek social groups. I don't know what would be considered unique. At the time I went to college anti-war groups were unique. We had a free univ. with courses too.
