    Just as you would for any school: keep documents, remember the names of the people you spoke with (administrators), and come in with an open mind. Depending on where you're from (small town or big city) coming to Western will be a major adjustment. The people here are pretty open minded, its really what you make of it.

    If you like the inner city you may struggle living in Macomb. I absolutely loved it and the campus offers enough activities to keep students busy but many people complain that there is not enough to do in Macomb. It all depends on your perspective. Also, food is pricey in the dorms, but don't be afraid to speak up about it and talk to the catering staff because they are very willing to listen and work to make students happy. Also, don't ignore your teachers. They are all great people who truly want to help you in every way. I loved the faculty and staff and Western.
