Western Illinois University Reviews
Rating 3.5 out of 5 1,696 reviews
When I visited Western, I could really see myself going to school there. Now that I've attended, I was right about Western being the right fit for me. The faculty is very helpful and people here are friendly. The view of the campus is beautiful and sits in a nice, quiet town. The student organizations here are fun and I truly feel like I belong here.
The online classes are good and depending on which teacher you get, you could have a varying level of interaction. I've taken a class where we would meet virtually twice a week and another class where I was left to learn the material on my own. Both classes were well prepared in which I was able to learn the material.
Western is in a boring town with Walmart as the only attraction. Each residence hall has horrible food but atleast they’re trying to change it slowly... the dorms are alright but the rooms are too small.
Some teachers have been lacking understanding and just throw PowerPoints at you, and some are really helpful.
The professors are excellent, they passionate and helpful about what they are teaching. It is obvious that they want to see you succeed. My feeling so far, as an international student is one of gratitude.
Of course it has not been easy, I had to take some of my classes on line being out of the country. Sometimes it was hard to get the text books, since some times there were territorial issues, but teachers were extremely helpful and willing to get out of their way to help.
The experience at Western Illinois University has been so far a good one. Every employee that I have worked with have been professional and helpful. I cannot speak much about the campus for I've only visited it a few time, but the building and grounds are very nice. I've decided to take only classes, and that so far has been really great. The professors are really great and passionate about what they are teaching. WIU offers tuition at a fair price, with great return on your investment.
Online tuition at WUI is great. I can learn from anywhere, and Im still receiving a great education. If your looking for a cheep way to get an education, I would highly recommend going into the online program at WIU.
Classes are all very appropriate to the students levels there are various professors willing to help students succeed.
A great university to help focus a student. A great university for Law Enforcement Majors and Nursing Students.
Honestly, my online learning went both ways. Math class we wouldn’t meet online, didn’t know it was a no class meet. English was great, I believe that teacher really wanted to teach the student.
My experience at Western Illinois University Recently was unique. The student were very kind, teachers were very nice, well explained with work, which made me understand my assignment. That’s why I feel like Western Illinois University is the best match for me 👍
I didn't have any online classes. The classwork I could do online was easy because I could take my time.
I didn't like the people or classes. the police and city officials are assholes too. It might be better if the city wasn't so poor, but it just sucked in general.
The professors are very understanding when errors online occurred and online learning made my life a little easier on campus.
Western Illinois University is a fantastic school to attend. Everyone is super friendly and there are many resources that can help you achieve your goals!
Teachers accommodated for so many things as long as the students was able to communicate their needs.
I liked how the school community came together to support each other through hard times. I wish that the Local community was less discriminatory towards the students. The local community and the campus community needs to come together, there is a disconnect there. The school has so many scholarships and offers so much help from desk assistants to counselors.
I am only taking one online class and it is extremely easy and at my own pace. I feel as if I am learning a lot and enjoying it.
I like some of the campus features at Western and the housing is a good bang for your buck. The town is small but cute. I think the people here are a bit aggressive and its not particularly a high quality education.
