Washington State University – “Go Cougs”
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 campusresidence 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.
