"As a first-generation college student, I really value the support I receive from my family," says Esmy Farias-Govea, human development major. "WSU Vancouver offers a great education close to home!"
Stay close, go far: In-state tuition is available for many Oregon residents, and 82 percent of enrolled undergrads receive financial aid or scholarships.
Small-School Feel, Big-School Resources
A variety of bachelor's degrees and areas of study offer endless opportunities for success. State-of-the-art technology and a 14:1 student-teacher ratio means classes are small and interactive. A research-based university, WSU Vancouver promotes hands-on learning with more than 150 PhD-credentialed professors.
"My classes stress how important it is to connect with people of different backgrounds. Professors help me relate to what I'm learning and provide lots of leadership opportunities," says Esmy. "The small campus is also a great networking base. Everyone is so friendly."
Student life is dynamic at WSU Vancouver with more than 50 student clubs, the lively Firstenburg Student Commons, and a close location for Portland road trips.
"My involvement in the Latino Student Association and my internship through the Office of Student Diversity have allowed me to host events focusing on inclusivity and diversity while building awareness of my culture," says Esmy.
Branch out even further through worldwide study abroad opportunities. Esmy firsthand: "I'll be studying abroad this summer through WSU Vancouver's very first trip to Cuba!"
