Western Illinois University Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Mickey

The type of person that should not attend Western Illinois University is one who can not get along with a variety of differnet people , wants a university with a challening science program or wants a college town which is not dead in the summer. Western Illinois university has a large variety of people who adhear to differnent thinking, lifestyles and statuses. If you can not get along with different people, WIU is not for you. The University touts a great law enforcement program but the science department lacks in both labware and funds.

Jordan

I have found that not many "city people" like to go to school here. It is a very small town with not much to do off campus. There aren't many stores or attactions in Macomb.

Brian

Any person that is not living, I was always the kind of person that never wanted to be around anyone in high school, as I entered my first year of college at WIU I became more involved and meet some really nice people.

Western Illinois is not a good college for students who are not very serious about their education. If a student isn't very into joining clubs or getting invoolved with volunteer work, this university might not be for them. This university is a bit costly, so if students want to save money and aren't interested in joining anything, they might not like Western.

Carolyn

Someone who is not serious about their college education should save their money, and everyones time and trouble by just staying home. Having a good time and partying are fine in moderation, but we are adults and should behave as such.

Victoria

There is no person who would not be welcomed here at Western. All types of students would be well equipped to come to Western. Western can help those who need extra help and also allow more advanced opportunities for those who learn faster than others. I recommend Western to everyone, it is a great place to make life long relationships and have fun, while still being academically focused.

CARRIE

WESTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY IS A GREAT INSTUTION. THERE IS A GREAT BALANCE OF EDUCATION AND EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES FOR ALL STUDENTS. IF A STUDENT IS UNSURE OF THEIR MAJOR COURSE OF STUDY, THEY SHOULD ATTEND A JUNIOR COLLEGE TO OBTAIN THEIR ASSOCIATES DEGREE FIRST TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE GOING TO GET THE MOST FROM THE UNIVERSITY.

Jessica

Western Illinois University is not the school for you if you are afraid of diversity. Every person here has a different background and story. There are students here from different countries, big cities, and towns with populations of 200. The teachers have different backgrounds, too. Some of them have spent years in different countries studying their field while others have grown up in Macomb. If you can't handle being able to choose what you want to do for the rest of your life and have fun while doing it, WIU is not for you.

Kayleigh

The kind of person who rather drink then focus on school. Also the people who have to shop and impress people. Most people here are straight forward farming people who care and don't want to deal with drama.

Daniel

Someone who only finds themselves in an urban community and can not stand a little bit slower paced life.

Michael

The type of person who shouldn't attend this shcool, is one who is coming to the university just to discover how much alcohol they can drink in one night without vomting. Western Illinois has a very low tolerance for studetns who do not take their academics seriously.

Ashley

A person that is not ready to meet new people and try new things shouldn't come here. Macomb is very welcoming and different. In addition, people that like the city life wouldn't want to come here because it is the opposite.

Stacy

I honestly think that a person who is very competetive about grades shouldn't come here. Grades are important to me and i try hard here to keep them up, but i believe this school just doesn't have the most challenging curiculum out there.

Michelle

Someone who is close minded and stubborn about their own opinions should not attend this school. It is a very free environment and people are generally friendly and open minded.

Brynn

Someone who is ready to work hard, but still meet new people and have fun in college.

Every body is welcome here.

I feel that everyone should at least try to attend school. The only reson why any one should not attend school is if they have a learning disablility and absoulty can't learn anything.

Jonathan

A person who wants to concentrate very hard on school work and not be distracted by social functions happening almost every weekend.

John

If you want a cheep school with a good house party scene come here
