Other Services - This is a college town with a fluctuating population, base population is approximately 70,000. The college is Western Washington University, third largest state college in Washington. (There is also the local community and technical colleges also.) The main University is known to be a teaching college (for education majors), so the local school systems are really good. (Low student/teacher ratios, lots of equipment.) There are lots of outdoor recreational things to do - skiing/snowboarding; camping; hiking, kayaking. Good nearby fishing and hunting areas.(according to people I work with!) This is a bigger size town but it’s harder to find jobs due to college students and their spouses also looking for work.
