Major: Communications (This Major's Salary over time)
WWU was a waste of time and money. I regret ever coming here. I went for a quarter and immediately transferred. I am from a medium city, Albuquerque and wanted to go somewhere new. WWU had great reputation for it's communication programs.

The town is dull. IT's cute and pretty but the most you can do is take a hike or snowboard. There is no night life at all. The parties would end quickly because people didn't understand you can't invite a thousand people to a party and not have cops show up. No one drinks, all the people are so full of themselves!!! They think being liberal and smoking pot makes them top of the food change. Couldn't stand it!!!

The communication program is nothing special at all. They have ZERO ZERO ZERO internships for you. Their classes are mediocre for this program. The GUR's I took were all busy work and tests. I LEARNED NOTHING!!! I went everyday to class and did all the work yet still I failed for no reason and I learned nothing.

I will say though if you want to teach or any earth sciences or geography this school would be great for you. If you are a Com major DO NOT COME HERE! They give you no hands on experience at all. If you are from a city any size don't come here. Bellingham is a town. There are no concerts at all you have to drive to Vancouver or Seattle to do that. It gets really expensive to go to Vancouver, it is fun but hotel, gas and drinks makes it only possible maybe once month. Seattle is so far it's really hard to go back and forth without a car.

If you are small town type person, smoke pot, inexperienced at partying then you might like this school. If you are straight edge and out doorsy and hate partying this school could be for you. I was none of these. THis school was a waste of time and money.
