Overall

Western Michigan University has a great campus that is small enough to easily get from class to class by walking. The buildings are being updated/ are updated with the latest technology to make it easier to utilize new tools. I have met so many nice people at Western. Most of the attendees seem to either come from the Detroit or Chicago areas. I commute to campus so I don't get too much experience in the living situation, but night life and local bars are great to go to. The campus feels safe and is very clean. The professors at Western have, for the most part, been great and really know what will help the students in their future. Class sizes aren't outrageously big, so professors get to know students on a personal level and notice if you're missing from class. Overall, Western is a great campus and school! GO BRONCOS!!

Academics

The professors at Western have, for the most part, been great and really know what will help the students in their future. Class sizes aren't outrageously big, so professors get to know students on a personal level and notice if you're missing from class. Class loads aren't too heavy. You will have work you need to do outside of the classroom and be prepared for group projects to all be due at the same time at the end of the semester. If you can, get ahead in the beginning so you have more time to focus on projects and exams at the end of the semester.

College Life

There are a lot of different student organizations that you can be a part of that will look great on your resume and help you with your future. You will make friends very easily at Western. People are very friendly. Night life is great. There are a lot of local breweries and bars near campus as well as great restaurants to get together at. Athletic events are huge at Western. We are very good at hockey and we have great football tailgates, especially against our rivals, Central Michigan University.

Overall

Overall, this vist made me conclude for western Michigayto be my first chioice for my college education. I really enjoyed the tour around the campus, visiting the doorms, library, recreation center, as well as the dinning hall. A tip from our tour guide was to definately join any type of on campus club. Knowing that this college has so much to offer, I certainly cant wait to enter the class of 2016 in the fall.

Academics

At western, they presented lecture halls not oversized, which would make me feel great knowing i will get the best learning experience. In a class to big, not everyone will be able to have all their questions answered. However, with class sizes at western being twenty-five to thirty people per class, every student should have the oportunity to get ahead in that certain class.

College Life

The atmosphere and student life really drew my attention while at Western Michigan University. The student life is very diverse and you get the feel of different cultures. This school presents alot of different clubs on campus, from the greek fraternities and sororitie, to the club sports held just for students to enjoy thereselves.
