5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: College has been one of the best experiences of my life. I have grown as a person having to be on my own for the first time in my life. I have learned how hard it is to maintain a life while working and being a full time student. Having to pay for everything myself has really taught me a lot about myself and about my future. I am driven and motivated to succeed and have a decent job after college. This scholarship will be very benefical with paying for my books/ tuition.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't change my school. I like my major and the people in it. We only have about 16 of us, so everyone knows everyone and we all get along. I like my friends I have made the past two years. I don't think I would change anything that has happened in the last two years of being in college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's great. I am excited that I decided to transfer there from Central Michigan University. I have heard nothing but great things about it.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Western Michigan. It was one of the best decision of my life to enroll at Western. The sports, the academics, atmosphere, school spirit, and many other opportunities are endless and great for everyone. Making friends is easy and most people are pretty nice and helpful. The staff is also good. The teachers and advisers are nice and helpful if you need advice or help in a class or something. Western is a great University and I am glad I go there.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Western Michigan University. I recently switched my major and my advisor is awesome! He's always willing to help me and he contacts me frequently making sure I'm on the right path and asking if I have questions. I've made great friends by staying in the residence halls my first two years and there are so many clubs to get active on campus. I wish I would've looked at other options but overall, I am VERY happy with my choice to be a Bronco.

5 College Senior

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Western is a good school. People seem to focus more on the party atmosphere when it comes to explaining WMU collectively. However, it is a top notch research institution that focus heavily on academics. I think may kids come to WMU for the wrong reasons and receive an extreme wake up call when they get here.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: I normally have classes located on East Campus and eat at the bistro located there.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It is great if your parents yearly income fits into the bracket. However if your parents claim you as a dependent but do not pay for any of your schooling it can be a hassle.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration mingles enough to ensure safety, but don't go over the top and prevent you from having a good time.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Customer service was more than helpful. Needed things sped up in order to get refund in time as a transfer student, they were more then willing to put in a help ticket to speed up the process.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It is very diverse. You need to find your niche of people who you get along with, but there are so many different people with so many different personalities, likes, and dislikes.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: From what I have heard there are certain areas and parties where sexual assault is more prominent, but for the most part it is pretty safe. Stay with friends, don't walk anywhere alone at night.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek Life, but I know a lot of people do it. Although there are a lot of freshman who rush, many people do not actually join.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We are not very good at many sports, but hockey games are a must. The facilities are pretty clean and nice for athletes and non-athletes.

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.
