I went to Central because I was looking for an affordable in-state school that offered a healthy, proactive learning and social environment. After completing three full years of study at CWU, I have noticed these things:
  • Students often complain about having to do their schoolwork, which is an implication of intellectual laziness.
  • Students fail to expand their horizons. This is shown in shirts that say "Constantly Wasted University", attendance at parties outweighing classroom attendance, and the usage of phrases such as "gay" and "retarded" in derogatory manners on campus.
  • If you ask a question that extends a classroom discussion, you will likely receive dirty looks for prolonging the lecture.
  • Multiple programs are offered for students who are struggling to keep up with their studies, while limited programs are available for students seeking a challenge.
  • Cliques exist, especially among the Freshman class.
  • More than half the students of my Freshman class have left the school; reasons for this include dropping out, transferring, or being expelled.
  • Although I have made many friends here, I am largely unsatisfied with the academic environment at CWU.
