College Application Playlist

Everyone needs good vibes in the last few days before a deadline, so we've put together a college application playlist to tell you how we feel about your application and to give you some motivational melodies this Valentine's Day weekend.

Fair warning: all links lead to YouTube. Good news: none of the links take you to a song that’s hard to listen to. Except that one.

The College Application Playlist

We’ve got 15 songs for the Feb. 15 deadline. Good luck with your application, and we’ll see you on the other side!

  1. One Direction: What Makes You Beautiful (Having a strong academic focus makes you beautiful to us.)
  2. Bruno Mars: Just the Way You Are (You don’t need to change for EWU.)
  3. The Doors: Hello, I Love You (We love it when you apply!)
  4. Tegan and Sara: Come a Little Closer (By closer, we mean “on campus for a tour.”)
  5. Aretha Franklin: Respect (We give every application the respect it deserves.)
  6. Depeche Mode: Just Can’t Get Enough (We get thousands of applications each year, but we can always handle more.)
  7. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros: Home (EWU is home to nearly 13,000 students, and we’re happy you want to be one.)
  8. Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Maps (You can find a map for your campus visit right here.)
  9. Etta James: At Last (We still love you even if you’re applying at the last possible moment.)
  10. Bright Eyes: First Day of My Life (College is always a great new adventure, and we hope you love the journey, wherever it takes you.)
  11. The Jackson Five: I Want You Back (Hundreds of EWU students come back for master’s degrees, online classes, summer classes, certificates, and second bachelor’s degrees. Those folks have a special place in our hearts.)
  12. Richard Marx: Right Here Waiting (Our staff is definitely right here waiting to read your application.)
  13. Adele: Make You Feel My Love (As a sign of our love, we’ll send you dozens of emails until we receive your completed application.)
  14. Hunter Hayes: I Want Crazy (We actually want “crazy hard-working and crazy fun-loving”, but this was as good as we could do.)
  15. Mates of State: Palomino (There’s no pun here. We just like this song.)
