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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that there could be better staffing when it comes to the teaching staff. I just do not feel the care from the professors that I think every college student should feel. This is our future we are talking about, so the professors should really care about shaping our minds and our lives all for the better.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

They aren't the best school to attend because they don't give their student enough information on resources. Learning is pretty much on you too. Western don't provide as much as they should. If it wasn't for youtube and google I wouldn't have passed my classes.

Attending Western Illinois University was a great idea, I have been here for years and have made great connections with great people, through the ups and downs I have been able to be supported by my potential friends for life and I also have supported them, there were some tough times on campus but all in all it was a great choice to attend Western Illinois University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My first trip to Western was simply a coincidence due to a school function that was going on there. I had not yet considered the college as one of my choices for attending the following fall, but when I stepped on campus I enjoyed every moment of being there. Walking around the quad was such an ah-ha moment when I saw all that Western had to offer, the friendliness of fellow students, and the staff's eagerness to help. I'm so thankful I came to the college and discovered my home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that WIU is a good school to attend as an undergraduate. There are plenty of on campus activities to get into to that will definitely keep you busy, lots of people to network with, and generally a positive energy around. If you are thinking about a good community and opportunities to branch yourself out then WIU can definitely be a good home away from home for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Illinois is a great school. They have great teachers, a wonderful university, and I feel excited about going there in the future. They have good athletics and are proud of all their teams. They are one of the best broadcasting schools in the country and have a great criminal justice program too.
