Health & Safety: We have our own Police that patrol the area and the station is not even a block away. We also have telephones that connect directly to the police station located all around campus.

Overall Experience: Wonderful work study program, a great way to earn extra cash while attending school as well as getting acquainted with the community.

Greek Life: Many of the Greek groups require a fee and a portion of your time. For most new students (fresh out of high school) this is a great opportunity to connect with others on campus.

For non-traditional students, this can be difficult for those who attend school and work a full time job, like myself.

Overall Experience: We have a connection to the Handshake website, and it was pretty easy to find an on campus job. I have yet to apply for an off campus job.

Health & Safety: I feel just the right amount of safe on this campus, neither like a toddler with super strict rules nor an anarchist society.

Campus Housing: for freshmen that are stuck in the valleys I feel bad for them. I would have rather lived more closer to campus than in the valleys because sometimes the buses might be late because of weather and such

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.
