Health & Safety: There are a lot of campus safety resources available for students. I have never felt unsafe walking from one place to another.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I wanted to experience on campus housing life and it wasn't everything that I'd hoped. The dining hall hours are inconvenient to those living in the valleys.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I had little to no involvement in greek life, but the friends that I made that were involved loved it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I didn't take full advantage of the athletic facilities, but they're awesome. I should have spent more time at the rec center. I think that the facilities for varsity athletes are fully up to date. As a fan, I love going and watching the Broncos play!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I never felt unsafe at school, but there was sometimes an alert about somebody getting mugged in the middle of campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms were good. I don't have anything to complain about. They had weight rooms in each one so if you didn't have time to go to the rec, you could go workout there which was nice.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not many people join Greek life and a lot of people encouraged me not to my freshman year so I never got involved.

Drug Safety: It exists but it is very hidden. Students know how to hide it.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: There is always room to improve. I am apart of FIRE (Fighting ignorance against rape through education) and we help educate people about sexual assault, unfortunately there will always be backlash and sexual assault happening hence why it can always improve.

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.
