    There's no place like home ... and Western is home! From the moment I took my tour, I knew WMU was the college for me. It has this warm, welcoming yet SCHOOL SPIRITED vibe to it..

    All of the professors are super available, and flexible with office hours, and they try their own best to see you succeed. Though there is work involved in good grades, you still have plenty of time to be with friends and to explore all that Kalamazoo has to offer, as well as go to the games!
