Western Washington University

Active Minds Changing Lives

A special mix of academic excellence, a focus on undergraduates, active learning, personal attention to students, respect for diversity, and beautiful surroundings makes Western Washington University one of the top public master's-granting universities in the nation. With an enrollment of 14,500 students and selective admission standards, the academic community is large enough to provide tremendous choice and intellectual challenge while also small enough for students to find support in creating their own path. Words frequently used to describe the campus culture include adventurous, collaborative, distinctive, engaging and inviting.

Located 90 miles north of Seattle and 60 miles south of Vancouver, British Columbia, Bellingham is a vibrant coastal community of 80,000 and offers outstanding opportunities for entertainment, recreation, faculty research and community involvement.
