What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Illinois University is a great college. They provide so many opportunities for their students. Their study abroad program is excellent. They are always there for you when you need help when looking into, getting ready, and when you are already abroad. They also have a great department available that helps students with mental illnesses and anxiety. This is a free program available to all students. Mental health is extremely important to WIU. They also have a great library that can meet all of your research needs. If they do not have the book, they will get it for you from another library. They provide many different academic programs. Their history and anthropology departments are amazing and offer classes in many different fields. Their academics programs have clubs and other social events for students to meet others in their field of study. They provide great graduate programs for many to go into specialty fields. They opened a new program a few years ago where Anthropology majors can now fast track from their bachelors to their masters in Museum Studies with one extra year of school. The campus is very safe, as well. On the weekends they provide security on the buses that are students from the Law Enforcement and Justice Administration program. They also provide escorts on campus for any students who are walking home from the library late for free. They will meet you and walk with you to your destination. Western Illinois University is a safe, opportunistic campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I enjoy attending WIU. I get to be involved in recreational clubs, make new friends, and work toward my major. I now that some departments appear to need to be updated like a remodel but it doesn't affect our studies. There is always activities to be involved in which is great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school would have been a good fit for me 5 years ago. Now, it is going down the drain. The only reason I came to Western was for their Geology/Paleontology program and the professor that taught it. They laid of that professor along with 130 other faculty members. The campus is not that great, the dining and housing are poor. Unless you plan on going into law enforcement, DO NOT go to Western Illinois University right now. The president of the university, Jack Thomas, is failing and causing the university to fail. Programs are getting cut, and I see no end in sight, so I am transferring to a different school next year. Western lost amazing faculty, and is now loosing students due to the cuts. I cannot in good faith recommend WIU to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Western Illinois University. Despite the fact that enrollment is down, those who truly like Western will never forget it. Class sizes are on the smaller end, which gives you the opportunity to converse with your classmates and teachers. If you get involved on campus, I believe that assists how great your experience is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it, i´ll be going to school there next fall and I´m excited to be a part of the Leatherneck community. I was recently there for Biology Day which was super fun! The people there are so friendly and helped me out when I needed to get somewhere, the professors I was able to meet we´re really nice and explained their class and how it goes. Overall Western is great place and I can´t wait to be a part of it.

I was a visitor at Western. My experience was overall great. Even though the campus is very huge but you will get used to getting around. They talked bout having Advisors for each student where they will help every student stay on track to accomplish their goal and academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has its flaws and has a somewhat rundown campus. If you play football the campus will favor you over everyone as perusal but the academic opportunities are amazing. If you need somewhere to go or people to be around it'd divers enough that you will find someone, or someone will eventually find you.
