What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Michigan University feels like home to me. Upon transferring to this institution from a local community college, admission advisors were very helpful and even though I usually contacted them over the phone or via email they easily remembered who I was when I met with them personally. The atmosphere is always positive, refreshing and relaxing as well. The staff members and peers are always willing to assist the next individual and love working as effective team players. I finally found my sanctuary where I am able to learn sufficiently and build long lasting relationships. I am forever grateful to be apart of this incredible school. I am a bronco for life!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western is a great school, although there are things that can be better. If you're an Asian American looking for a pleasant experience as an Asian American, you won't find much here, but the Asian Pacific American Student Association and that's the best you can do. Western tends to forget about the APIA community they have there, but they're starting to notice them, which is excellent! The greek life is pretty good, there are lots of multicultural, black and panhellenic greek orgs to join and there are over 400 student orgs, but if you can't find an organization you like then you can always create one! The teachers can be a hit or miss, but I think that it's mostly a hit, especially if you're a freshman, there are so many programs that Western offers that help with the transition from high school to college and they also have so many student help centers that you can go always go to when you need help whether it be tutoring or writing a paper! All in all, Western is a pretty good school, nice scenery, and nice people!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school, there are plenty of professors willing to invest in the students. Lots of student organization, so there is something for everyone. The overall area is safe and friendly. However the price is overly expensive for the academics and housing provided.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WMU was a pretty good school. Campus life was always interesting, I lived at home though not in the dorms, but if you wanted to find a party, or a gathering, you could definitely. The worst part about WMU is the parking. They sell triple the amount of parking permit than they actually have of parking spaces, then will not hesitate to ticket you if you make your own parking spot, or park in a lot that you are not designated to. It was the worst!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the community and abundance of activities are amazing. Food and dorms could be better but that's college! Most of the professors I have met have been amazing and communicate everything very well. The programs tend to be more rigorous but well worth it. Western has an amazing group of involved college advisors who understand the need of the com

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I only went for a semester, it just wasn't the right fit for me. There was nothing to really do except for doing your homework and partying. Needs to be in a better environment where it's in a city or bigger sports fans. I think I would've liked it if it were somewhere safer as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It i a great college to interact to. They have have a decent football team and a good fine arts program. Many students always try to get involved in sports all across the college. Also the dining is perfect in the college. I hope you plan to attend this college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Michigan University is a great school and I'm glad to have found a school like Western. Western has helped me to open many doors and has given many opportunities to achieve my degree in education. I have met and made good friends in my time here and will cherish these friendships. The athletics here are great, I love going to the hockey games and coming together with other students as one. I have gotten the opportunity to become an resident assistant for residence life at Western Michigan and it has helped to improve my professional, social, and academic skills. Overall, I would recommend Western to anyone who is looking for a good school for academics and making memories!
