Positive Negative Neutral Advice
Though academically demanding, UWA does not have aOther
Though academically demanding, UWA does not have a wide selection of majors at the graduate level. Many other universities do not look favorably on a degree from UWA. Its degrees are generally accepted for further graduate work, but employers often prefer degrees from major universities or better positioned regional universities with some name recognition. Also, politics for work study, assistantship, and employment opportunities can be quite extensive unless you have family members already working for the college, or happen to be one of the chosen few as appointments are often made from within. Otherwise, my education thus far has been quite adequate though not exceptional.

Question
This university is good,Super BrilliantNursing
This university is good, because it has a clean environment but the only thing is you have to commute if you don't live in the city. I think they should have Dorms because they have so many students.
