Most Helpful Review for Western Michigan University

The academics offered here at WMU are great. The school is not too big that it is hard to get individual help, but its big enough to teach you how to learn on your own and use the facilities the school provides as help. The student writing center and math tutoring sessions are each great tools to help you learn in your big lecture halls.

    Rating Western University in the Location, academics and staff helpfulness. Location wise, western is in a decent spot in Kalamazoo. The places students need to go are close to campus and convenient . As far as academics Western offers a vast range of degrees for all types of students. Unfortunately the staff is not very friendly or helpful, this is a huge con for me as a student. Unfortunately you would not know the staff is so unpleasant until your a student.

    Very small-town, cultured, first step into the world. There is a lot to do here because it is a college town. Academics can be hard if you do not ask for the correct help.

    Great food downtown and free transportation! It's pretty much a bar town, so it's great if you're 21. If not, there are plenty of parties on or around campus.
