5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I started at Kellogg Community College for the first two years of college, I would not change a single second of those last two years. Living at home and going to a two-year school not only saved me money but it gave me opportunities to explore other options for careers. Now that I have moved on to Western Michigan University I know it is the right place and the right career path for me.

Overall Experience: Western is a very fun school so far. I always see smiling faces around campus and I believe that I made a great decision on choosing which school would be best for me.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm going to be a junior in the fall and I can honestly say that I wouldn't change my decision about going to Western at all! I absolutely love it there and it has been everything that I have wanted out of college and more. The education that I'm receiving is amazing and the students are all very caring and awesome! Would change my experiences for the world.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being apart of WMU is like a dream come true. I'm so excited about learning and studying in the field of study I choose. Western Michigan University is one of the most diverse setting I've ever experienced. One of my favorite experiences here is that the community is a environmental friendly and push for students and staff to recycle and "Go Green" which helps the community stay active. I'm also a strong believer in being a leader and encouraging students and staff to reinforce faculty to remain a smoke free campus. The things that makes WMU unique simple is that any and everyone is free to express them selfs no matter what. WMU can be expressed as something so unique in many different forms, such as showing peace, love, happiness, and most importantly being able to be yourself and be in a higher learning environment while meeting new people.

Overall Experience: The summer entry session was way to upbeat and didn't answer any serious questions i had. Fortunately, the dining conditions were very satisfactory.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love how big the campus and the variety of choices to choose from as far as classes. The environment is nice and friendly as well as the staff. I met many other freshmen who are experiencing the same situations as me as far as being 17 years old and feeling a little homesick.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Western Michigan University has been pretty great, I love the atmosphere and the people here. Everyone is fill with school spirit and joy! My counselor constantly shows interest in my success which I admire deeply. The only down fall I have to say about this school is that I wish it was farther away from home, although campus is like its own little community within the city I still see familiar faces and I would just like a fresh start in a different town.

Overall Experience: Western Michigan University has a great environment and I enjoy playing baseball there. Amazing facilities and coaches. Couldn't get any better teachers or overall people to be around.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: From the moment of my acceptance I have received a call with an academic counselor who could meet with me that same week to break down how this university could flex to my needs specifically. They seemed eager to include me as a student and to get me set up to attend classes in a short amount of time. Excellent student services.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my experience thus far at Western Michigan University. It's been my first choice since my second year of the Early College Program.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although I haven't officially begun school yet at WMU the experiences I have had were quite enjoyable and set a great tone for the next four years.

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.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's great. I am always meeting new people and the atmosphere is great.

5 College Sophomore

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.
