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.

    Western is an overall great school because of it's medium size. There are small classes with about 20 people and there are large lecture halls with 200 other students. There is something for everyone!

    Western is amazing at making a student feel important. Western cares about making sure each individual student is getting the resources they need. Even with 25,000 students you get that individual attention that helps you be successful.
