After Western Illinois University
- Very Good501
I have had an amazing experience here at Western Illinois University. The environment is encouraging and helpful. Each professor truly wants you to succeed and do well. I decided to join a sorority here and having that experience has changed my life and I would have never been able to do that without the opportunities Western Illinois has given me.

I really enjoy the campus of WIU. While it may seem large, it is actually smaller than you would expect. If you had the time, you could walk to where you needed to go. It is also a very beautiful campus with an almost park-like atmosphere. If I did have to change something, it would be the dorm room size. Some of them are extremely small with not a lot of room for movement, especially for two people.

I liked living in the dorms. The singles dorm does not have a dining hall. Western needs to create a dining hall for the singles dorms. I like that there is a bus system to take you around campus and the surrounding area.
