I was excited after visiting WWU for the first time -the campus is very pretty and "natural feeling". After about a month in a dorm though, I became more and more unhappy with what I came to realise was a very isolated school.

It is surrounded by a huge forest on one side and the steep, crooked slums of bellingham on the other.

It seems like Bellingham is a dying lumber town or something. There is no place to go and nothing to do. At night and on weekends the spartan, socialist-inspired school buildings will offer you no comfort as you trudge through the desolate, far-flung campus.

If you are a hard-drinking prep, lazy pothead or perhaps if you love to hike, this school may be for you. If you are sensitive, shy, creative or "urbane" do not come here. you will become depressed.
