What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love how Western has such a family and home like atmoshphere. Every professor will make sure you get the best education possible from them, and are usually always available as needed. The dorms are a pretty good size when compared to other schools, and the food is very good with healthier options daily specials, grills stations, fruit, soup, and salad bars, and much more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Western. This is a place I didn't think I would like a first because it was far from home, its in a very small town, and in order to have a good time you really have to get out of your comfort zone and get out of your room. My first day was move-in day, there were actual students to help you out and give you tips and pointers on what to expect for your first week/weekend of college. There is a whole celebration for everybody where you can meet people from your grade or other upperclassmen. Later on, in your first week, there is a picnic where you can walk around to different tables of different organizations or activities where you can join. And the sorority life is always visible! Class is a discussion held almost all the time because a lot of people know that in order to have a good time all of your work needs to be done! The unofficial motto set by WIU students is Play Hard Work Even Harder!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attend a smaller campus of Western Illinois University-Quad Cities in Moline. It is nice and small and makes me feel really comfortable. the teachers are always ready to respond and help, and the class sizes are small enough to make strong connections with peers and professors. Although the overall "college life" is not included in this campus, the academics are amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy Western Illinois University. However, I do wish they had more opportunities for homeless students or students who are in no financial standing to pay off the fees right away. I also wish they would be able to receive more funding to do more and also to expend on tings they use to have. I also wish their were more things available in options in the grocery stores.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For the love of god don't come here unless you want an easy degree and like to party. If you are at all intelligent or even vaguely competent this is not the school for you. Many of the faculty members that cared are gone and the ones left who used to care don't care anymore because we all know this is a sinking ship.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its an okay school. Most of the academic opportunities relevant to me I have to go out of my way to get them because it seems that the university doesn't care about the study of foreign languages. But that is okay because I have learned to work that much harder and become that much more independent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For the most part Western Illinois University, is a home away from home to me. There are tons of activities for students and staff to partake in. There are always smiling faces and helping hands. The teachers have regular office hours and some even help you out in the night hours if needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

western is a great school for someone who is looking for a small class size, engaging teachers, and a well spread out campus. my favorite thing about the school is the teachers I have so many times been working on an assignment late at night and get stuck or don't understand the instructions thoroughly and my teachers will email me if not the same night definitely early the next morning. western is in a small town but still you can never be bored. between the students and faculty there are always many different activities to hit everyone's likes, and groups/ organizations that include everyone. sometimes you think that because your new that no one will like the same things as you or you wont find a place to "fit in", but western made it really easy to find places to spike your interest and help you find other things to try. overall i think its a great place for learning and a great place to make everlasting memories,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'd always thought of my future growing up, but never considered where I might go to college until my Junior year of high school when our teachers began encouraging us to look into such things. Eventually, I found myself at Western Illinois University's website when I was searching for colleges that offered degrees in things I was interested in. I immediately knew I found the right college for me and became even more sure of that after my college visit and then SOAR. When I'm at WIU I feel like I found a second home. I highly recommend anyone going to college in Illinois or any surrounding states look into Western Illinois UNiversity as a possible college choice.
