3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have seen no effort at public awareness about safety issues. I am sure there is information out there somewhere but I haven't seen it.

Overall Experience: I think overall you get out what you put in to any school. It seems like the professors and counsellors care about your success and give you tips on how to do well. It's up to you to take that advice.

Campus Housing: Dorms are very close to some building, it depends on where you need to go as to how far a hike you will have.

Athletics: I'm not a sports fan but I have noticed that there are a lot of fans and athletes. I think it is great that very one is supportive but that sports aren't the driving force around campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Western because of the people, the places to go, and the amount of knowledge that's available for you to learn here. It also helps that it's the only school close by that offers Aerospace Engineering.

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: every semester multiple employers come to campus to hold job interview seminars, and even hire people.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: there is a campus police and the kalamazoo police. there are many strategically placed police boxes around campus so if you feel unsafe you can push the button and talk to someone while they are sending a police car to your location

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is something everyone should experience, its a great way to make new friends and is very convenient for how close the dorms are to where the classes all are.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life on Western's campus is great. They all do things to to support the community and help out around campus. Getting into Greek life isn't all that hard you just have to want to be apart and show how committed you are going to be to your new sister or brother hood. Going Greek on this campus is probably one of the best things you could do in your college years.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at my school are top notch, they are always fun to attend and everyone who does enjoys themselves. Most of the student body attends all of the different sporting events and they are never dull affairs

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I loved almost all of my time that I have spent at Western. It's a great college and has a variety of people so we can always fit in with some group of people

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I just had my first few classes here at WMU, but what i have seen has been wonderful! The professors and teaching assistants have been very helpful and always are willing to answer questions.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from WMU is very valuable. WMU is recognized as one of the leading research facilities in the United States. The classes are good size, and there is a law school and medical school directly affiliated with Western.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall the campus is safe, however I come from a very small town and am not used to a large amount of people, and the crime rate in my hometown is little to none. Although I have never personally felt victimized at WMU, I be sure to carry pepper spray and/or walk with a group as often as I can.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The newer dorms on campus are very nice with good sized rooms and lounges. The dorm that I am in is much smaller and not as nice. There is not air conditioning, and in the beginning of the year it can be pretty brutal. However, the rooms are clean and the dining center is pretty close by, which is definitely great.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not know very much about the Greek life at WMU, but I know that it is a pretty big part of campus and I am definitely planning on trying it out!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are a huge amount of varsity and intramural sports here at WMU. I have already signed up for a few, and everyone that I have talked to has had positive things to say about them, or is part of one!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have only been at Western Michigan University for two weeks, but I already know I absolutely love it. My classes are all generally small, the professors are personable, and every one I have met has been extremely nice and helpful. My first day of classes I got lost a few times and had to ask multiple people where to go. Every one was more than happy to help, and gave me the quickest and most efficient route. Overall, WMU is a wonderful place to study, and I cannot wait to see what the next four years hold!

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.
