    Western is interesting to say the least. It's nothing major by any means but we have some luxuries that we often take for granted. We're not the best university but you will receive the bang for your buck. We're one of the cheaper Illinois universities.

    Western Illinois University has taught me to grow up and live on my own, yeah maybe it isn't the perfect, most prestigious school, but it has taught me so much. I would recommend western to any person that ever asked how I liked it. There is absolutely nothing I would or could complain about as far as the schooling!

    Western Illinois University is an exciting four year college that is just the right size. There are hundreds of clubs, sports, Greek life, and activities to choose from and there is DEFINITELY something for everyone. The class sizes are small so you can get the attention you need and the teachers/staff are always very friendly and more than willing to help.

    I love Western Illinois University, attending school here has opened up so many opportunities for me. The best part is WIU aims to make college more affordable for the consumer and opens the door for all sorts of perspective students, and provides an excellent education. I've met so many people and learned so much that I am beyond eager to see what life has in store for me after I graduate Western Illinois University.

    A great small town university. Perfect size university for someone who went to a smaller high school. The professors and students are all great people.
