I came to Western because they offered me a decent athletic scholarship. I don't know why anyone else would want to come here.

The first reason is because the teachers are for the most part always helpful. Second, they should go there if they want a diverse environment. Thirdly, people should go there because the classes are small so that professors can help each person.

These are my three main reasons for choosing Western Oregon University, 1. The surroundings, the campus is located in a college town with the beach 45 minutes away, or Portland 40 minutes away to farms right outside your dorm! 2. Gets you away from home, it is far enough away from home to not be able to come back every weekend, but close enough to come back on breaks. My mother actually wanted us to leave our state so we learn to miss and love our home town, so we want to come back and make roots back at home. 3. The gym...the gym is AMAZING! It is so clean, well staffed and a friendly environment. For being a gym rat this was an important factor to consider.

Because the campus is beautiful, rural, and peaceful. And the architecture is spectacular. The staff and students seem to all be very kind and welcoming.

  1. Small class sizes allow students to get to know their professors and classmates on a more personal level
  2. Beautiful campus, great resources, and everything is in walking distance
  3. Many leadership and volunteer opportunities

  1. Western has smaller class sizes than other state universities with really involved teachers.
  2. Western is incredibly diverse for such a small population of students. We have a number of exchange students, as well as students who speak different languages such as Spanish, Chinese, and American Sign Language.
  3. There are nearly endless resources for student on campus. From deciding your major, to receiving counseling, to fixing your computer, there are departments all over campus to help. (Not to mention students receive an hour of free tutoring a week for every class they take.)

One reason to attend Western Oregon University are, the classes are small. This allows for instructors to get to know their students and they are able to work one-on-one with their students. The second reason to attend Western Oregon University is that it is in a small town. There is not a lot going on around the campus so you will always find time to study and usually in a quiet place. Lastly, the third reason to attend Western Oregon University is because the instructors take the time to get to know their students. Many of the instructors on campus end up being a students advisor and they give them pointers on what classes to take and when to take them. All instructors have office hours and an open door policy. It makes it nice to be able to go to an instructor and tell them what you are finding difficult and they work with you.

Someone should attend WOU for so many reasons, but if I had to pick 3 then the following is what I would choose. One, we are PROGRESSIVE! Two, we are PERSONABLE! Three, we have many credible programs!

Our curriculum requirements are very rational and very much capable for any student. We have small class sizes that allow a really great interaction between the student and the teacher. And lastly, our school has many opportunities/resources to branch out into the career paths you wish to seek out.

WOU is in a small college town, but has proximity to many larger areas and schools, it has a beautiful campus, and many campus activities.
