4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It is very diverse. You need to find your niche of people who you get along with, but there are so many different people with so many different personalities, likes, and dislikes.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Pretty regular. Same categories of people as usual.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I have made some good friends on campus, but I cannot rate everyone the same.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Like any university, Western has a variety of people on its campus. On a more general scale, guys and girls are decent to look at, and fairly nice. I can't really describe the dress code since everyone dresses so differently...Social life is kind of lame. Western is known for parties but after a while the constant partying becomes mundane. There really isn't much to do outside of that. I will say that our students LOVE greek life. Everyone wants to be part of a fraternity or sorority. As far as dating, there is no privacy at Western. Since the school is so small, everyone knows who's dating who, and that gets to be especially annoying and dramatic. Overall, I think Western is just like every other michigan college on a social scale.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Lots of students are into running/jogging, overall healthy lifestyles. Meeting people on campus is a great way to connect, everyone is open and friendly.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

With Western Michigan University's total enrollment exceeding 25,000 students, making friends is easy, as there's somebody for everyone out there. While the University has a slightly higher ratio of women compared to men, it's not too noticeable, considering the size of the school.

The type of student at Western varies greatly, and depending on your personality type, there are literally thousands of students you could potentially get to know. Most students on campus are younger, in their late teens and early 20s; however, there are graduate students and continuing education students who are in their mid- to late 20s, and occasionally, there are students even older than that. Overall, everyone is really down to earth, and finding someone to hang out with is relatively simple.
