There is not one specific way to describe the typical Central Washington University student other than the upper middle-class Caucasian student. Yes, there is racial diversity, however, it is limited.

There are so many different kinds of students at Central Washington University that it would be ridiculous to try to pick one as typical. We have all different majors and personalities, there's no one typical student. You should attend Central if you care about finding what you want to do and being comfortable in the place you live.

I would say that the typical student at cwu is well diversified. They are not super studious, but not the bottom of the barrel. They know how to have fun and are down to earth people, yet know work ethic and getting things taken care of.

The students at CWU are, for the most part, down to earth, genuine people. It is easy to find a group of students that are relatable. Many are passionate about various subjects, such as politics, computing, and change in society. If someone enjoyed spending time outdoors with many other like-minded, progressive people, CWU would be the place for them.

Central Washington University's students are very friendly. While some maybe shy, all have a pleasant disposition once you get to know them. Many students participate in some kind of outdoor recreation as well. A typical Central Washington student will have to devote at least a few hours a week to studying and will most likely have some kind of part time job, especially as they progress through school.

a typical Central Washington University student is very laid back and I would say outdoorsy. There is lots of hiking, rafting, camping, and swimming spots so people tend to come here for a relaxed type of experience. For the most part the students are all very nice and welcoming and because there is so much to do through the school you aren't really ever bored.

The type of person that should attend Central is one that enjoys the small town feels. Someone who enjoys connecting with the faculty and making long lasting connections with many students on campus. One who does not want to feel like another number but like part of the community. The students here enjoy the calm atmosphere of Central but they also enjoy that there are a variety of activities to enjoy both on and off campus. Those who are adventure seekers and nature junkies will enjoy this campus as it is surrounded by rails and beautiful scenery.

The type of student for CWU is dedicated, multi-tasking, and energetic. We have a fabulous campus that mixes the dorm rooms with the class buildings.

I don't think that there is a typical Central Washington University student, we are all super different and there is lots of diversity around campus. We do have stuff in common though, all of the students are very committed to helping each other. There are study groups, an academic center for tutoring help in any subject, and the professors are usually always willing to work with you when you need it. I think that anybody can attend Central because we are open to everyone, the campus is filled with all sorts of people from athletes to international students. But one thing to keep in mind for possible students is that Central Washington is in Ellensburg which is not a big town; so if you come from a city it might not be the place for you because there is not a whole lot to do, most of the stores in town are small businesses and the nearest mall is in Yakima. That being said it is a great little town and most of the people that live in town know each other, so it is a great school to go to if you want to get away from the hectic city life.

Since CWU is in such a small town, the typical student here should be able to enjoy themselves without the all the options and craziness of a big city. One thing that's nice about CWU is that the small town provides for less distractions than most places so if a student is trying to be serious about school and succeeding, then Ellensburg is a good place for them.
