What is your overall opinion of this school?

I always feel as though the faculty and staff at WMU truly care about the ultimate success and well-being of the University's students. There are so many resources on campus for practically any academic subject, student's concern, or interest. The writing center offers help throughout the writing process, from outline to final draft, and there are math and chemistry tutors for those of us who just can't get the formulas working or just want to keep them working. There is on site free counseling for wholesome advice and uplifting words of hope, and there are organizations catering to any kind of extracurricular needs, such as gaming, fishing, singing, boating, and even poker! We have three libraries with information from fine arts to first source history resources. The general atmosphere at Western is welcoming and busy, we care very much about where we need to be at what time, and the idea that partying every weekend has not been a part of the lives of the students I talk to around here. Academics come first. Fun can happen in five minutes while visiting with a friend who is passing on their way to class, or just happens to be eating at the cafeteria at the same time as you. It isn't always a big plan to go out and have fun, it just finds us. Recently I have been setting up a lot of advising appointments, and every appointment I attend feels like I am learning something new, fresh, and exciting. My advisors always provide the best of the knowledge they can offer with advice in my best interests even if I don't completely understand how I could ever accomplish the goals I have in place. They are genuinely interested in what we talk about and how progress is being made, they care about my aspirations and tailor my courses to meet those interests. I really believe that they will be one hundred percent behind me all the way, flexible and willing, no matter how many times I change my major. Our university is very inclusive and diverse, and we aim to provide safe judgement free learning for all students regardless of any disabilities, race, culture, background, or gender. That is probably what I love most about Western. I want to feel proud of who I am as a person, in what I am accomplishing today. I am here now, studying for success in my future because of everything I have been through and everything that I have persevered, not being like everybody else, just being me. We all have our stories here at Western and they aren't all roses and dew drops -some may be, but we are all the more interesting and persistent. Go Broncos!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Michigan University sets high standards for its students and wants to see all of them achieve success, the aviation campus is run very well with there on coming 2020 expansion making them one of the top 10 flight schools in America. If i had the sufficient funds, I would greatly consider attending this school in the future

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Do not go to school here if you plan on being an aviation flight science major. The program is way too expensive, you will be put on a waitlist for almost everything ranging from 2 months to almost a year. The Battle Creek airport is more than 30 minutes away from the main campus, the Cirrus SR-20 is an awful plane for any student pilot to learn in, and more times than not your flights will be canceled because of the lack of resources or the weather. The College of Aviation has far exceeded its student capacity and does not have the fleet or number of instructors to deal with the problem. From November-March, expect about 90% of your flights to be canceled and for nothing to get done. Depression caused by Seasonal Affective Disorder can get real...fast in Michigan. Outside of the College of Aviation, most students at WMU are only interested in what parties they are going to on any particular night instead of classes and it can be very hard for those focused on school to make any real connections. Most of the teachers at this college are great, however, classes are way too easy. Avoid WMU at all costs, especially if you are interested in aviation, there are so many better alternatives (MTSU, Utah State, Middle Georgia). I genuinely regret coming to school in Kalamazoo. Thank you for reading!:)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a beautiful campus with a lot of opportunities to get involved and have fun. It feels very authentic and welcoming from the first step on campus. Through my first two years of school here, I have been able to experience leadership opportunities while also making lifelong friendships.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Western! There are so many activities and ways to become involved. I feel supported by my teachers and academic adviser. I'm majoring in flight science and I love the partnerships that they have with Delta which will help me find a career once my training is completed. I've met many great friends who are all very supportive of each other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Even though it is a big campus with a lot of students there is a small town feeling you get when you attend here. Campus size is massive but the culture and diversity are something that makes the community here great. Everyone loves to have school pride in and outside of classrooms.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Michigan University is a great school I just personally feel that they should offer more financial aid to minorities. The university is sitting on millions and should reward minorities or anyone for that matter that cannot pay for school. Overall, I love the school I am incoming sophomore that enjoys all the qualities Western has to offer.
