WIU is my second home! Although there are both good and bad people everywhere, WIU has some GREAT people:) The faculty are available to help with the strict academics, the upperclassmen are welcoming and helpful, the school spirit (even if we are not too good at sports) makes all the games loads of fun! Go necks!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Western Illinois University has a perfect little community like atmosphere where pretty much everyone has seen one another. It's a great place to build long lasting relationships. I met my best friend here being my roommate. So far Western has been treating me well. I honestly could not see myself attending elsewhere. This is my second home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Illinois University overall is an okay school. The professors are nice and will offer help to anyone who needs it, as long as you are putting forth 100% effort in their class. There are a lot of students who join sororities and fraternities so Greek life is quite alive. I lived on campus my freshmen year and have always felt safe walking around campus late at night. There are even on campus police officers who will escort you to wherever you need to be to ensure your safe. The food on campus is okay, but it depends on which dining you hall you go to because each one serves different meals each night. Next, the dorm rooms. The dorm rooms are small, but it is an okay size if you do not have a lot of things to put in your dorm. The only problem I had with my room was the A/C because of it not working correctly majority of the time. My bathroom on my dorm floor would be filthy, which would equal in floor meetings or floor fines. There were only two good showers in the bathroom, while the others either had a high pressure, or the water would be cold. However, I have met some amazing people that I can see lifelong friendships with, and they have also helped me with my college experience. I came into college shy and not really open to talking to anyone to breaking out of my shell and becoming more friendly and interactive with my peers. My class sizes have been okay for the most part, and the work has been okay also. It is nothing you can't handle as long as you study and make sure to stay on top of assignments. I have had a good experience at Western so far, and I am returning as a sophomore hoping for bigger and better things to come!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinon of Western Illinois is that it is a good atmpsphere to be around and there are alot of kind, frendly people but there isn't alot to do around there. There isn't a mall or anything. So if you decide to attend here you better have some friends that are going or make some new ones because it will get a little boring. Yes the parties are great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Illinois University is a smaller university that creates a small town but college atmosphere. The size allows you to know most of your peers and be involved in multiple activities. The staff on campus are always friendly and very helpful. The campus is very open to activities and any set up that will help get more students involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Illinois University is a mid sized university of around 11,000 people it is located in a small town called Macomb, Illinois with a population of around 5,000 people. It has fairly small class sizes usually containing around 30 students with few lecture classes containing 40-100 students. It is very easy to get to know your professors however in this small town it is hard to find things to do besides sports and party.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, this school is OK. The freshmen dorms are not the greatest, but they aren't terrible either. The food isn't good, but we do have a couple of different options. As for the community, there isn't much to do. It is a rural area, but we do have a couple of stores around town. The weekends could definitely be fun!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After spending my first year of college at Western Illinois University, I can truly say this is a great college. I would not have wanted to spend my first year anywhere else. I rate the school four stars because of the friendly environment, great teachers and many activities on campus. One important thing to talk about is the school spirit. It is phenomenal, especially coming from a school with no school spirit, to see people with so much pride about their sports teams and school. The school has a variety of food ranging from pizza, to subs, to breakfast at all times of the day. Also, the counselors do not get enough credit. They fully understand what you are dealing with and give you the advice you need. The counselors recognize the process and confusion of figuring out your major. One of the most important reasons why I chose this school is because of the campus security. The security genuinely cares about people’s safety. No matter what time of the day or night, they will be there to help you if you feel unsafe. The only downfall that I have encountered is where the school is located. There is not many things to do in the community because it is such a small town. Other than that one problem, the school is great. I recommend it to everyone who is unsure where to go and no matter where you come from, the school has a comfy feeling that always welcomes you and makes you feel safe and at home.
