Living in Spokane
As the second largest city in Washington state, Spokane has all the amenities of a big city, with the feel of a small and supportive community. The city has become especially popular in the last 10 years for its cottage industry of craft brew beer, some of the most breathtaking views nature has to offer, and a thriving arts, culture and restaurant scene.
In the heart of downtown Spokane, the WSU Health Sciences campus is just a short walk from all of the best things Spokane has to offer. The campus itself borders the Spokane river and students looking for a few minutes of fresh air between classes can quickly find themselves overlooking the Spokane falls in what National Geographic calls one of the nation’s most beautiful urban parks, Riverfront Park.
With more than 100 parks, 76 lakes in the Spokane area, five ski resorts within a two-hour drive of downtown, and plenty of hiking and biking trails, the city offers a variety of outdoor recreation year-round. While enjoying the outdoors, anyone keeping their eyes peeled might even see a bald eagle, a moose, or any of the diverse wildlife that calls the area home.
