3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I'm not aware of any drugs being used on campus, but many students drink off campus on the weekends. However, I've never seen anyone under age participating.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safer on campus than I do at the grocery store! Campus security is posted at the door of every building, and they personally check student and staff ID. Also, security officers drive through the parking lots to make sure cars are secure and students walking to cars are safe. Finally, security officers will always ask if you need an escort to your car if you are leaving a building after dark.

4 College Junior

Academics: Our program has a heavy work load, but we are only in school for two years (which means two more years of working and two less years of loans taken out). The curriculum is fast paced, but the instructors are knowledgeable and there is not shortage of job opportunities post graduation.

4 College Junior

Academics: The registration process is easy and not stressful in the slightest. Because we are in specific programs with pre-blocked classes, there is not competition to get into certain courses…it is already planned out for you.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school is not extremely strict on aspects of student person life. However, the on-campus security is excellent, and I always feel safe at school.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not take advantage of campus housing, but my friends enjoy it

3 College Junior

Majors: PA school is generally quite competitive, and the process was somewhat grueling. However, on interview day, I actually enjoyed myself. I was a nice chance to meet the faculty and take a look around. The most important criteria for admission are as follows: high GPA, excellent people skills, professional yet humble attitude, willingness to take criticism and use it for improvement.

3 College Junior

Majors: I enjoy working with my peers toward a common goal, and I find that we all help each other. Because the workload is so heavy, students focus on helping each other get through it, rather than competing (very different from undergrad).

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think my dissatisfaction stems from missing home, not problems with the school

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I didn't use the school to help me find off-campus housing, but I have heard that they are helpful

3 College Junior

Computers: The printing quota is extremely small, so I always have to add money to my printing account. However, there are always computers available.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: We don't actually have a cafeteria, so the options are slim. However, the one option (Outtakes) has healthy choices available

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The school is in a bad area, but there are nicer towns just minutes away

5 College Junior

Parking: I can always get a parking spot, even if I show up only 10 minutes before class starts

4 College Junior

Diversity: A wide range of political views and cultural backgrounds are represented.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The school ensures that students receive enough financial aide. This is especially important considering how expensive graduate programs generally are.

College Sophomore

Athletics: we don't have sports at the university as far as i know

College Sophomore

Transportation: I cant review the transportation since i have a car and never had to take public transportation.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Western University is an amazing university however the area isn't a safe area. There were multiple shootings last year (2012-2013 school year). In terms of cost, its not to expensive to live/dine around the school

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There's no campus housing, but there are apartment complexes located right next to campus. There's the Metropolitan, the Helix (more modern complex), and they're currently building a new complex right on campus as of spring 2013. I haven't lived in any of these complexes, but from what I hear from classmates who have, it can be rather pricey for an area that's not worth it.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: everyone's too busy with school to be taking drugs.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Downtown Pomona is what it is. In my opinion, the school does a decent job in doing its best to keep us safe. Irregardless, the neighborhood has a lot of bums, beggars, and pretty ghetto people. Cars get broken into every year, literally, and often police chases nearby.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There is no Greed Life at this campus. This is not undergrad.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: This is a medical school. It is highly selective regarding who can get in and the programs require students to pass a background check. There are no "seedy types" on campus. We are studying to become doctors, and so the only drug use is for learning purposes or when we prescribe drugs for patients.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: Students buy and bring their own laptops to school. However, there are a few, sparse computers around mostly so that students can print documents or quickly check something on the internet.
