RECOIL from the thought of learning new information and skills that will empower you to be a productive , financially successful professional? DETEST the notion that you'll look back at your college experience as absolutely the most engaging, amazing, and life-changing years of your life? If so, then Western Michigan University is NOT for you.

You shouldn't attend this school if you have a hard time balancing work and play.

The main focus at school is education with an emphasis on hardwork, preperation, and involvement. Hardwork is extremely important, in order to be successful in today's world hardwork is neccesity. This school also believes in real world preperation. Many opportunities are available for students to receive an internship or practicum. Another important aspect is involvement, including school activities and volunteering. Not only is a great education important to be successful but it is also important to give back to the community. If an individual is not looking for these opportunities, then this school may not be for them.
