My classmates are all very different. Most of the students know how to be prompt to class, however, there are always some students who choose not to go to class. Classes are usually twenty to thirty students, so you get to know you classmates better. They are all usually very friendly and helpful if necessary.

Sherrise

Most students are from Chicago. A lot of students I interact with fail to talk intelligently and lack confidence in where their knowledge will take them. Some students come to college for the wrong reasons; some came for parties and others came for academics.

Andrew

Western Illinois University has approximately 11,500 undergraduates on its campus. Even though most students on campus identify themselves as white, this school has a diverse student population. One of the school's initiatives over the years has been to increase diversity and cultural awareness, and this can easily be seen. To begin with, a brand new cultural center was completed two years ago and it houses the Black Student Association, Casa Latina student group, the women's center, and the LGBT student organization. Western is also represented by students from over 70 countries and many events are held throughout the year to celebrate diversity. An example is the International Bazaar, where students from different countries have booths with authentic cuisine from their country and a stage where students perform dances that are from their country. Even though Western is over 3 hours away from Chicago, a majority of students on campus here come from the Chicago land area. Others come from other places in Illinois and a few people that go here are from Iowa since it's close by.
