A student should be open minded to the diverse population of students present. They should be focused and determined to succeed. More importantly, they should be prepared to learn and learn well, so be prepared to work hard. We have world class faculty and it would be a shame to see students waste those resources. Students want to learn and the staff wants you to succeed.

I am in a master's program, so I don't think that there is a 'typical' student in my program. Students in my program are diverse in every way - age, culture, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc. It is what makes the program meaningful.

There is no "typical" WSU student, because there is so much diversity. We have so many international students, and students who have lived their entire life in the United States, but are originally from another country and therefore carry their culture with them. So, in a sense, the "typical" WSU is unique. Because even if you are a white male, you still stand out since there are so many non-white students. Therefore, anyone and everyone can attend WSU.
