4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They strict when it's needed

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I think they are Great

5 College Junior

Academics: I think WMU is very helpful, from my personal experience i have received nothing but the best and so much effort into helping me further myself

3 College Junior

Academics: its okay as in the classes, its just so much biology and chemistry gotta put in the work in order to do well

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life is huge at WMU, good thing about them they keep you involved.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: off campus dinning is good for the most part would love a little more variety but its not too bad!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing can go either way, if you living in an apartment i think that is much better. Dorms are not the best

3 College Junior

Nightlife: WMU to me is not really a party school but may be to some. Dont get me wrong they do have certain events or times of the year where its really live, but as far as clubs or bars they are just ok in my eyes. Usually you just have friends over and hang out! I dont think WMU is negative but cant quite say everything is positive when it comes to the party scene

Overall Experience: I believe that WMU has plenty of internships volunteering going on to help further us student in our future careers

5 College Junior

Facilities: There is plenty of opportunities/facilities to receive help on homework or just a quiet place to study on campus. That is one thing WMU cannot go wrong!

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I think everyone shows their own uniqueness, its almost as no one is ashamed or afraid to be themselves, which is a good thing in my eyes.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Students involved in a sport is a very good thing not only can they better themselves in they sport they love to do but it also keep the students on top of their school work!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I didnt like it at first but I'm getting use to it.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Quiet sometimes of the day. Busy sometimes. You have to find the right time.

4 College Junior

Majors: My program was not really hard. Some people do not have an issue with getting into their programs.

Overall, Western Michigan University has a lot to offer, just like the Kalamazoo area has great things to discover. Western Michigan has a variety of academic programs designed to perfectly fit any student in any major. It's a place where you can be yourself—a place where you can easily balance academia and a social life. A university filled with friendly and diverse people, if you're looking for an unforgettable experience and memories to last a lifetime, then Western is the place to be.

The large university atmosphere can be intimidating, but generally classes don't go beyond 50 students. Also, the "big school" atmosphere is conducive for a lot of school spirit when it comes to athletics. You will always be able to spot students in Western gear as they travel from class to class around campus.
