Washington State University is a top-tier research, land-grant university. We belong to the Pac-12 conference in addition to a strong intramural and sport club network. Our student to faculty ratio is approximately 15:1 and 80% of our undergraduate classes have fewer than 50 students. Recreational activities include hiking on Kamiak Butte, biking along the 20 mile Chipman Trail, skiing at several resorts within a three-hour drive, and the award winning Student Recreation Center. Palouse Falls is just an hour away, and the Snake River is equally close. WSU is a large university with a traditional campus feeling in a small town setting.

Campus Location - Pullman is located in the rolling hills of the Palouse. We have more than 170 days of sunshine and all four seasons. A small town, we are 8 miles from the Idaho border and the University of Idaho. The largest shopping city is Spokane, 75 miles away and Seattle is a short 5 hour drive.
