About Washington State University
SERVING WASHINGTON AND THE WORLD
Washington State University conducts transformational research and provides world-class education to more than 26,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Founded in 1890 in Pullman, it is Washington’s original land-grant university, with a mission of improving quality of life.
Research emphasis, top ranking
One of the nation’s top public research institutions, WSU stands among 96 U.S. public and private universities with very high research activity, according to the classification from The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Many academic programs win recognition for excellence.
Statewide system, worldwide reach
Top academic programs
WSU scientists’ discoveries improve lives here in Washington and around the world.
Top rankings and recognition
Top rankings and/or nationwide recognition for excellence are hallmarks of many WSU academic programs (undergraduate, graduate, and professional).
Lectures are just a launching pad. Across hundreds of fields of study, WSU students follow up with hands-on lessons: internships, research, fieldwork, in-depth labs, and study-abroad programs.
The student-to-faculty ratio is just 16:1, so if you’re a student, you won’t be a stranger to your professors.
Solid career preparation
Each year employers actively recruit new graduates during thousands of interviews held on campus.
These innovators include Fulbright Scholars, recipients of the National Science Foundation Career Award, and members of the National Academies—the nation’s highest honor for scientific researchers.
Students who make a difference
WSU students actively engage in issues to create positive change. They make their mark through civic engagement, or through involvement in more than 300 student clubs and organizations, student government, and multicultural student centers. Many students help others succeed by serving as a mentor or peer tutor in writing, engineering, or other subjects.
A community that bridges cultures
The Pullman campus welcomes international students from nearly 100 countries and fosters interaction among scholars of diverse cultures and perspectives.
A place to call home
A great neighborhood
Pullman is a quintessential college town—one of the best in the nation according to a 2012 MSN report. At its heart is the University, called a “residential campus” because it’s home for thousands of students from 50 states and nearly 100 countries. Single freshmen under 20 spend their first year living in a campus residence hall or University-recognized fraternity or sorority. In residence halls, living-learning communities keep freshmen focused; they’re proven to help students earn higher grades.
The University offers nice, quiet apartments just for students with families and graduate students. Many students, as well as University faculty and staff, make their homes off campus in the beautiful, tree-lined neighborhoods of Pullman, as well as in surrounding communities.
Students and faculty can access advanced computer labs, high-tech classrooms, and one of the largest library systems in the Pacific Northwest.
Activities, culture, and entertainment
It’s all right on campus. Just walk to Beasley Coliseum to hear lectures from influential visitors, see big-name entertainers, and watch the Cougs square off in Pac-12 basketball. Join the throng of fans at Martin Stadium to cheer on the Cougar football team. Celebrate and learn at cultural events. Stroll through the WSU Museum of Art or grab a bite to eat at the CUB (Compton Union Building).
Both students and faculty play in one of the Pac-12's largest intramural sports programs and can choose from a huge menu of recreational activities. Athletics fans cheer on the Cougs, who compete in at the NCAA Division I level in nine women’s and six men’s sports.
