What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Western Michigan University, overall its a great school with many different opportunities to become involved around campus and to meet different people. Classes are usually always enjoyable and the professors are easy to talk to or email if you have any questions. The student body is a group of involved people who have started many different clubs, or have different activities going. Everyone can find somewhere that they belong. The campus is a great place and definitely worth checking out even though most people don't know about the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending Western Michigan University would be a great choice. The campus is beautiful and the people on campus are so nice. Everyone tends to be outgoing in their academic life and in their social life here on campus. There are so many things to do like going to the beach, visiting Chicago, GVSU, the city's around Kalamazoo, and so much more. Your class sizes tend to be kept small so you actually get to know your professors which look's great on a job application. There are so many places to receive help on campus and so many great opportunities offered to students. The social life on campus and around campus tends to always be a fun and interesting time. The campus is huge with around 24,000 students attending, but you always seem to see people you know as your walking to class. If a huge campus is something that you are trying to avoid, don't worry because it is a 15-minute walk from one side of campus to the other. Western Michigan University has a new engineering campus with state of the art technology. We also have one of the best teaching schools in the nation which started in 1903. We are ranked third in the nation for our Aviation program. The Occupational therapy, audiology, and sales and business marketing programs are one of the top-rated programs in the country. At Western it is free to use the rec center, the buses, and to attend games with your student ID. The rec center is the largest in the MAC conference, and our football team was ranked in the top 15 this year. The WMU football team went to the cotton bowl and college game day on (ESPN) was hosted on our campus this year. Every year attending WMU will bring you a whole new and different experience. There is always something going on and something to be learned here at Western Michigan University. GO BRONCOS!!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Row the Boat! Western Michigan University is a premier performing and visual arts, health, and business university. As a music student, being able to work with world-class faculty any time of day, anywhere was one of the major selling points when I chose to go to WMU. Our sports life is outstanding! Our football team recently accomplished an undefeated regular season, along with making it to one of the most prestigious bowl games in the country, the Cotton Bowl. Life around the sports programs has been re-ignited, thanks to the recent success. Food is fantastic on campus! You can go to Bistro3 and grab a nice slice of pizza, to the brand new Valley Dining Center and take your pick from the several new dining stations, or head to Draper Carryout for a quick sandwich in between classes. Our school does a TON to get students involved with organizations. There are ads everywhere for some sort of club, and joining clubs has never been easier! With over 200 Registered Student Organizations, you can find something for any type of activity! I'm proud to call Western Michigan University my home and institution for higher education. Row the Boat and Go Broncos!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Just transferred to WMU and so far a good experience. The bus system is amazing. I live off campus and I only have to take my car to get groceries. Stores and fast food places are all nearby. I save on gas every week. It is a very good atmosphere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western in is a very open welling campus since a transfered here . The students and staff are nice and the food is good. The dorms are nice for singles but a bit cramped for doubles. Youre able to walk anywhere on campus or take the bus if needed.Western also has safe ride which will take you back to campus from anywhere in the area so transportation at wertern is easy. but the valleys have a ,lot of hills which can be tiring to walk up, espcially going to class everyday.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just finished my third semester at WMU. i still love it just as much as my first semester here. There are so many clubs and activities, the food is pretty good for cafeteria food. I like my residence hall (I'm even planning to live in the dorms again next year!); the RA's are friendly, its pretty quiet most of the time, and its generally a nice place to live. It's also near enough that I can walk literally anywhere on campus within 30 minutes, but usually less. Services on campus are accessible and professors really care about what they teach.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Michigan University offers a diverse range of opportunities; from educational, extra-curricular to political involvements. As an older student (27) who moved from Northern Ireland in 2016, WMU was wonderful at welcoming me into the American education system. If it wasn't for the excellent staff in Student Advising, I would have been lost in an alien world, far different from the education I received in the United Kingdom. As a commuter, my experience so far has been brilliant; accessible parking takes the stress out of driving from Grand Rapids everyday. On-campus food isn't terrible, but the selection leaves a lot to be desired. I would recommend bringing a packed lunch if you are going to be in all day, or if you are too cool for that (let's face it, I'm a dinosaur compared to the other freshman!), nearby Stadium Drive offers all the variety you will ever want for meals. Academics wise, you won't be disappointed in spending your time and money here. Any of my professors so far have all been extremely helpful with any questions or inquiries I have had; either about in class lectures or homework assignments. WMU also offers a great tutoring scheme, free of charge, with former top students available for help. It really does seem like the University wants to offer as much help as possible, which is a refreshing change. You won't be disappointed with on-campus facilities or extra-curricular either. There always seems to be something happening on campus, whether it's a political rally, ESPN Game Day (GO BRONCOS!), fraternity bake sales etc. There is always something to be getting involved in. Oh, and did I mention the rec center is awesome? Because it is. I wasn't looking forward to returning to education at this point in my life, but I can honestly say that Western Michigan University has greatly softened the blow. What it lacks in on-campus food options, it makes up for it in every other aspect of college life. You will not regret your decision to attend this great college. Go Broncos!
