Western Michigan University Reviews
I loved the people who attends Western as well as the faculty and staff. Western has really allowed me to get out my comfort zone and expand with the variety of different people, clubs, and organizations. Western has tons of opportunities to help you grow as a student and into an adult. There are so many Registered Student Organizations (RSO) on campus. I love that being a student on campus you can voice your opinions and feel comfortable doing so. There are places on campus for the LGBT community to go and feel safe! Western makes sure you can get the full experience and still learn.
The music program at Western includes top-notch faculty and well-run courses, and has a genuine sense of community and support from both peers and teachers. Though the competition is tough and every student is individual challenged, there are no negative undertones, and it is made quite obvious that the majority of people wish to see you succeed and be happy. It is an excellent environment for aspiring musicians. As for dorm life, the conditions are basic, but not unclean or unattractive. The overall campus is beautiful and bucolic. Everything always appears well-kept and inviting, and provides a much-needed sense of earthiness amid the cement and brick buildings. There is an impressive amount of diversity on campus, and the University displays itself as one always willing to grow and maintain a worldly community. I have never felt unsafe on campus. The food is my only prominent negative. It is much too expensive for it's quality. Overall, WMU is an incredible stepping-stone!
I am happy to say that I very much enjoyed my college career here at Western Michigan University. I love the campus there. It's very beautiful and it is not too big, but not too small. It's just the right size! The people here are very friendly and always affable. I've meets many friends with my time here at Western! The instructors here are of quality and want you to succeed in college and in life. The only thing I'd say is bad about this university is the dorm life (including the food). It does not feel like home and the rooms are plain and boring. Except for the new dorms they just built about 3 years ago. Other than that, I love Western Michigan University and I would recommend it to anyone! The opportunities are endless here.
