Western Michigan University Reviews
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 a transfer here and so far I like it! I hate living on campus. NEVER LIVE IN FRENCH HALL! It's dirty and unsafe. It's an awful environment and they don't let you cancel housing contracts. Other than that, the food is really good, depending on where you go. Bigelow isn't good and there aren't many to go options. Valley Dining, Bistro and some of the cafes are great. There's so many ways to get involved too! Greek Life is kinda small here but we all support each other and it's a great community. We have great athletics and academics too. There's so many majors and great professors that really care and want to help. Just be careful about where you live if you're living on campus.
Of all the many things I love about Western Michigan University, one of the most important to me is probably the amount of things to do and the diversity in the students. For one, no matter your interests, there will be an RSO or club that will work for you. No one, no matter how weird you think you are, you will have a community to join. Not only that, but there is such a diverse crowd here that again, no matter how much of an outcast you think you are, you aren't one! There is such a diversity of people, that everyone can and will find friends.
