Major: Engineering Department (This Major's Salary over time)
Let's be very frank; there are three types of people who go to WSU.

1. Rich often-dumb kids from the Seattle area who want to get away from their parents for a few years

2. Dumb kids from non-urban parts of Washington

3. International students who would sooner cut off a limb than associate themselves with any locals

The engineering department is passable; you will get pretty much the same offers as someone from UW if you plan on staying in the region. However on a national level, WSU has much less name recognition, let alone anything resembling prestige.

Students lean politically conservative, but in that fake-christian Ted Nugent kind of way. In other words, all the bad things you'd associate with conservatives but none of the good. Not a very nice environment for minorities, especially hispanics and those easily mistaken for one.

It is a party school in the sense that there isn't much to do but get drunk, but it's not Arizona State either (gah).
