These schools are similar to Western Michigan University in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.

I enjoy the diversity and inclusion the campus offers as well as the excellent instructors.
If I am going, to be honest, I have not had a normal college experience. Covid hit the spring of my freshman year. So my experience has been a little different compared to most people. What I will say is to get out when you can. If you just focus too much on school work and have the social life that is needed for survival you are going to get bored and lonely which we know can lead to deeper and worst things.
Umm, I think this school is very much based on money. A lot of the students here are here because of daddy's money and is not having to pay a dime for school and it shows while there are other students who are struggling to pay for college. But the students who do not need the money get the scholarships not the ones in need.
I love the community on campus and how accessible everything is.
Certain classes can seem interesting but then the teacher ruins them.
Let's be honest, the cost is a massive contributing factor to going to college/university. The cost of Western Michigan University is within a reasonable amount comparably alongside that offers a wide range of majors and opportunities that can make the experience worth it on a value basis.
Some of the professors I have had have ranged from great to terrible. Alongside that, the location can be pretty dangerous at times depending on where you are living.
I am still fairly new, I just finished my first semester here, but so far I have really enjoyed my experience. I have loved most of my professors and the one-on-one interactions you get with art instructors and your peers in the studios are great. My experience with their online classes has been good as well, the only issue I noticed was communication between professors and students could be a bit lacking which could make things confusing. Overall, my time here has been great and I would recommend this school if you’re looking! :)
The only time something happened that I did not really like was when I was transferring to WMU from a community college. I completed my Associate’s degree and I was coming in as a junior however, it took a few months for everything to transfer so everything showed I was a sophomore. When things were updated and I was now being shown as a junior, an extra charge of about $600 was added to my account for the upper-level resident charge.
Academic advisors, unfortunately.
