I really enjoy this school and the opportunities that I have. It is a part of the WUE program so I can save money.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

They charged you more for being an online student

Shannon Guerin Van Deusen



I love the small size of Western. A student can get to know their professors and work with them. As a music major, I had so much fun with fellow music majors. We felt like a family.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The weekend life was pretty boring. This was many years ago though. I believe it is much better now.
