He cares more about Social Life than the average student.
Date: May 20 2009
Major: Math (This Major's Salary over time)
For applied math, the department is great. For theoretical math the deparment sucks bad. If you plan to go to grad school, you'd better plan on supplementing your WSU work with classes at UI (University of Idaho) in order to get some standard classes offered elsewhere. Topology was dropped, only 1 semester of Abstract Algebra, no non-Euclidean Geometry, Complex analysis weak. Many important classes offered only every other year makes scheduling and graduating difficult.

Faculty are a great group of people who really seem to care but resources are just not there. There is not much diversity in faculty. It's truely just applied math here.

The hallways in the math department have the feeling of a morgue. Quiet and depressing. The department really needs some new bright young minds full of hope and vision. And please, some theoretical mathematicians!
