3 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are good and there are opportunities of getting on campus internship. the only disadvantage is trying to get internship off campus. University is rather isolated, so it won't be convenient.

Academics: It is great the only downfall is that it does not have a graduate program

5 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are ready to help students, they explain material in a clear manner. WLU has big education department which is very popular choice for accepted students. Workload depends on the class and professor. Most of the classes require a lot of reading. registration is easy and can be done online very quickly.

4 College Junior

Academics: You get the same education as you would anywhere else. The professors are very helpful and want you to succeed. You wouldn't guess their qualifications. The curriculum is fair. The registration process for classes is pretty fair too. You always want to schedule for the gen eds first to ensure you get in those classes. Sometimes the workload for each class is difficult, but a lot of my classes give projects or tests and.There are tutors that are very helpful. The popular study areas on campus include: the union, Jazzman's, the library, dorm lobbies, the quad, the English major lounge, the Media arts center, and the "table" in the music department.

3 College Junior

Academics: I tried being a double major in music education and English education. I recently made English education a minor. My workload was ridiculous. I had a lot of projects and skill based learning I had to master. The facilities could use updating. The library just had a computer lab ripped out. It would be nice if there were more printing options. The fine arts building needs updated in a lot of ways. There are internship/ job opportunities for both in work study and tutoring.
