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.

    Campus has a lot of hills, so everyone has great legs. The student population is growing in diversity, and there are many clubs/organizations representing them all. The food in the greater Kalamazoo area is killer (I’m talking to you, Two Fellas).

    Western is a great place for engineering students. The college campus is beautiful and the College of Engineering is full of interesting labs. Western should be a top choice for Michigan residents.

    WMU is one of the best places I've been to. It's very welcoming, I've yet to meet anyone that was just flat-out unfriendly.

    i recently visited the campus and i fell in love. the atmosphere and the city around the campus was nice to experience. the campus was a good fit for me, it wasn't too big, but it wasn't small either.

    I love Western Michigan University because as soon as I transferred, I knew that I was going to have a great experience here. This was my first semester here and I've got to say I've made a lot of friends and so many opportunities opened up for me. I've never thought I would've made half of the accomplishments I made in one semester!
