Drug Safety: Midwestern University provides training to students going into healthcare fields such as medicine, pharmacy, and dentistry. Drug and alcohol abuse is not a major issue at the university, due to the studious nature of the students who are enrolled in these programs. Nonetheless, there is a zero tolerance policy for students who participate in activities such as illicit drug use, or arrive at clinical rotations under the influence of alcohol.

Weather: Living in the Chicagoland area, you never know how much it will snow, or when the rain will stop. Weather conditions affect the amount of time it take many commuters to arrive to class. However, living on campus provides the added security of not having to worry about being late for an exam or activity due to the weather.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Midwestern University provides it students with many opportunities to enjoy life beyond the classroom. There are numerous clubs and organizations, student government, and recreational activities activities available for students majoring in any profession. At Midwestern, you can find whatever fits your interests, and if you can't, the university will work with you to help start a new organization that meets your interest.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There is no choice of brand

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel that the health and safety are great

3 College Junior

Computers: Sometimes I need my own computer

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a good school

5 College Freshman

Majors: The dental program is very rigorous, as it should be. Being a new school, the faculty is always looking for suggestions to make the class better. Everything here is state of the art and the clinic is brand new will all top of the line equipment.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship or anything of the like. I am in the dental program (my first year) and will be working in the clinic my third year.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I do not see why this matters. Midwestern is a health care, graduate school. Majority of the people are in commited relationships or are married. The dental students are very attractive though, so there is eye candy and everyone here is smart since they are going to be doctors.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Downers Grove is very close to Chicago, so there is plenty to do there! There are many towns surrounding the school that have quality living, food, and entertainment. There are plenty of malls and shopping centers nearby as well.

5 College Freshman

Parking: There is a huge parking garage on campus and many other parking locations available. Spots fill up quickly, but there are usually spots open on the upper floors of the garage.

When leaving the garage, there can be a wait, but that is dependent on your class size. 130 people leaving the garage at once can clog it up.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think the fact that campus is gated and there is security monitoring who enters and leaves campus makes it feel very safe.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's by Chicago therefore the weather in the windy city is unpredictable. This winter was way too long and the summers not long enough.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Downers grove is a suburb next to Chicago, which makes it nice and quite during the week but with great places to go to during the weekend. About an hour away is UIC another dental college and we sometimes have events with their classes.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm in the Dental Medicine Program, and have had mixed fillings about my education regarding my dental classes so far. We have an amazing SIM clinic, unfortunately the dental faculty is all over the place at times, and we have a lot of down time where we are just sitting around without making the best of our time. The work load is substantial, because we are in dental school.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Midwestern University because of its Dental Medicine program, the campus is great, the professors are specialist in their field, therefore the classes are nicely integrated. The dental classes are a little unorganized because the dental program is only 2 years old.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Many extremely nice options but with a price tag to match

4 College Student

Diversity: This is a graduate school so the diversity is excellent because they select the best candidates from anywhere

4 College Student

Athletics: There are no athletics but there are many intramural opportunities

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: This school does not have any official athletic teams, but they do have intramural sports. They also have a gym in the Health and Wellness Center you can use.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I heard the dorms are very expensive on campus, so most students rent an apartment near school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: You need your ID to get into the campus or else it becomes difficult. You also need your ID to enter any building. They are pretty strict about this. You also cannot be more than 10 minutes late for most exams in the testing center or they might not let you take the test.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Sometimes it is difficult to find parking, but if you come early enough, you can find a good spot. You mostly park in the parking garage.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: There are many majors at this school such as pharmacy, dentistry, medicine, and physical therapy. They are all very challenging programs.
