The WSU advantage
We're not going to be shy about this: the campus environment at WSU gives you a better chance of success than most other universities.
You don't just go to school here.
You live here.
A large percentage of students (including nearly all freshmen and sophomores) live on campus. And because Pullman is a small town, even those who live off-campus are generally within walking distance of their classes.
Check out campus housing:
Pullman. Yep, it's a definite advantage.
At WSU, you have a whole town that's built around students. The people and facilities you need are right here, 24/7.
And we're not the only ones who think Pullman offers something special: MSN Local Edition says Pullman is one of the 10 best college towns in America.
In a quintessential college town like Pullman, you can build a connection with your professors easily. There's class time and office hours, of course, but it's not uncommon to see them at the grocery store, in line at the coffee shop, or walking across campus. After all, they live here too, same as you. While you don't have to meet your professors outside class, when you make that extra effort to get to know your professors a little bit, they also get to know you. And that's a very good thing.
The "Go Cougs!" factor
Being a Cougar means you're part of a lifelong, worldwide network of support. Living together at a big university in a small town in the middle of nowhere tends to create bonds between people.

Get a piece of WSU gear and show it off wherever you happen to be. When a total stranger smiles and says, "Go Cougs!" you'll understand.
