Campus Visit Notes: Western Washington University

After many years of recruitment travel with WWU admissions officers and dozens of nights spent eavesdropping on the university’s “pitch” at college fairs, I’m so happy I was able to physically visit campus. Bellingham is charming, and still close enough to two major cities for students who need big city access. Western’s campus was beautiful and the students were very welcoming (even though the Northwest isn’t known for being overly friendly). It is a great fit for a student looking for a mix of lecture and seminar classes, an engaged and inclusive student body, and a beautifully green setting.
