Information for Professional & Graduate School Representatives

This annual event, begun in 1995 as a Health Sciences Professional School Info Fair, expanded in 2008 to also include non-health graduate disciplines. Your attendance offers you direct interaction with students to inform them about your program, its requirements and application procedures.

Western Washington University (WWU) enrolls 15,000 students and offers 160 academic programs. Students of all class levels attend this event. It is also open to the public, with community members often attending. Two community colleges, Whatcom Community College and Skagit Valley College, and Northwest Indian College are located within a 35-mile radius.

Western Washington University is located in Bellingham, Washington. The Viking Union Multipurpose Room (VU MPR) overlooks Bellingham Bay plus several of Puget Sound's 172 San Juan Islands. The University is 90 miles north of Seattle, and 55 miles south of Vancouver, Canada.
