    The campus is beautiful and conveniently close together. The buildings were easy to navigate and the dorms looked really inviting. With all the extracurricular activities, big recreation center, and car service they have, this school made a great impression.

    Western is the perfect size school for someone who wants a university experience without being overwhelmed by the sheer mass of larger campuses. You will rarely be late to classes- you can run anywhere in about 5 minutes. They don't cram classes so students actualy get a chance to meet and interact with their students
