Western Illinois University Graduate Reviews

9 reviews
Western Illinois University has given me the opportunity to take classes tailored to my future goals in a small-scale college setting. Some professors work with students to achieve their greatest potential and get the most out of their college experience. I would like to see more professors work with vigor and compassion for their students, rather than their paychecks though.

I received my bachelor's degree in Music Education at WIU in 2014, and was able to find a job as a school band director well in advance of the following school year. When I decided it was time to return for graduate school, WIU was at the top of my list. The opportunities the music provides are numerous and invaluable. The professors really work towards trying to prepare their students for successful music careers, and demand excellence in order to do so.
This is an amazing institution where professors, faculty, and your peers want you to succeed. I love the fact that my tuition remains the same for all four years.
