Review Western Illinois University
What I like about Western Illinois is all the campus buildings are all close together. When I was looking at different colleges, for example University of Iowa, I did not like that the campus buildings were not walking distances. With the buildings being so close together I am able to go to the food court, gym, or library and not worry about being late to my next class. Also I recommend trying Dividends in Stipes building. Their coffee and walking tacos are amazing! The professors their are very helpful. They have helped me whenever I come to their office for help, even if it takes an hour or two, and they also provide tutors on campus.
Higher values in education. Back in high school I usually had things(academics) my way and learnt little. Just four months in, Western Illinois University showed a better perspective of life; "following up". I learnt good work ethics and health habits. I'm happy I school here!
I am currently only a Freshman at Western Illinois University but i instantly fell in love! The amount of activities and clubs i am offered is limitless. The professors I have had have been nothing but helpful in my education. They love what they are doing and are happy to help students when it comes to academics, advice, and even references in the future.
