Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
