“CWU is located in an ideal location, its right in the middle of WA and within driving distance of any city in WA which makes it easier to take vacations. CWU has small classes with less than 30 students in each class, this encourages a close student-instructor relationship which has been very helpful to me especially during my freshman year when I was trying to get used to the way of life here. CWU offers amazing tuition prices and waivers for international students to enable them to concentrate on school and not have to worry about their financials all the time. The international community here at CWU is very supportive of international students and the advisors are always looking out for the students by exploring new ways to improve the services they already offer.”
