Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe on campus during the day. At night, I don't feel as safe because a lot of things happened on campus this past year. Campus Crime was moderate at night sometimes and I didn't feel as safe walking back from my night class

Campus Housing: I lived in the new dorms that were build in 2015. I was the first class to stay in them, Western Heights. I though the building was beautiful, it was air conditioned. semi-private bathrooms, a kitchenette with a common tv area. It was really great, but the cleaning services were really bad, they never cleaned and no one likes a dirty house.

Greek Life: Again, I don't know much about it but they have this stereotype about the Geeks. From what I've encountered, some of those are true but most of them aren't Greeks do a lot of things to help with the community. No one sees that though, it's all about the parties and if you don't really know anyone from the Greek life, then you aren't getting in.

Athletics: I really don't know much about it, but from what i hear it's pretty good. The school spirit is very high which is always great, we have a lot if fan support which is great as well.

Overall Experience: My overall experience was okay. The people are all so friendly but i didn't enjoy my freshman year so much. Even though people were friendly, the staff was no help at all, you literally had to find everything out on your own. No one was no help, hopefully next year is better.

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.
