All the information you need about studying in Ellensburg as an international student.

Why study in Ellensburg?

Ellensburg is a friendly city located in the US state of Washington. Despite its city status, Ellensburg has a laid-back, rural feel that’s sure to make you feel at home in no time.

Ellensburg is best known for its world-famous rodeo. The Wild West lifestyle doesn’t end there either; the weekly farmer’s market is a great place to stock up on groceries, or you could eat out at one of the city’s traditional restaurants.

Stretched along the Kittitas Valley’s Yakima River, Ellensburg is the perfect study abroad destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Cycling, skiing, and paddle boarding are just some of the activities you could try out after class. If you’re looking for a weekend adventure, you’ll find the major cities of Seattle, Portland, and Victoria within a 165-mile radius.

    CWU - Des Moines is safe place, and the school is connected with Highline College. Also, the location of the campus is very near to my house. I think that would be fun to study in a small place campus, but badly that the campus is closed because of Covid-19; therefore, I don't have any experience of transport links, facilities, shops, and nightlife. But, I wish the Covid-19 would disappear, and school would be open normally again because I love to study in-person classes like before we did not have the corona virus appear.

    I don't know the details because I live in a city in the same state that is not the city where the campus is located. I think you can concentrate on your studies because of the suburban terrain. The town itself isn't that big, so I don't think students will have any problems in their lives without good public transportation.

    I studied in Lynwood location. It is a safe place and I am so happy that I feel like my home country. The weather is great here. Everyone is very welcoming and they helped me a lot. The location was near to my house. The transportation was really great. Don't need car to drive in. Bus facilities was good and very convenient. There were a lot groceries options. Local restaurant has really good option for food. There is a big mall near the campus you can do almost all the shopping.
