Current Student
Very great school with diverse students. Classes and class schedule is usually very easy to work around. The advisors are there to help you! They want the students to succeed. Many of the teachers are friendly and have good office hours. Campus life is fun and it is very close to the heart of downtown, about a 10-15 minute walk. One thing I really like about this campus is that lots of students gather in Red Square to promote political issues, clubs and activities, concerts, speeches, etc. and have the freedom to do so. Lots of art exhibits and displays from professional artists and student artists alike.

The class of 2019
The main reason I grew to love Bellingham and Western more over the years was through the connections I made with the people. Founding my own student club, being a part of many other clubs, working on campus, and calling a small Chinese learning department my home, I was able to develop a close-knit community. Western is the kind of place people call Belling HOME. Besides that, if you like the outdoors and want to be surrounded by chill yet motivated individuals, I recommend that you attend!
