With Western Michigan University's total enrollment exceeding 25,000 students, making friends is easy, as there's somebody for everyone out there. While the University has a slightly higher ratio of women compared to men, it's not too noticeable, considering the size of the school.
The type of student at Western varies greatly, and depending on your personality type, there are literally thousands of students you could potentially get to know. Most students on campus are younger, in their late teens and early 20s; however, there are graduate students and continuing education students who are in their mid- to late 20s, and occasionally, there are students even older than that. Overall, everyone is really down to earth, and finding someone to hang out with is relatively simple.
