Forever Bronco - 2/21/2017
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014
"My undergraduate experience was a lot of fun and WMU provided me with a smooth transition into living on my own. I made life-long friends in my clubs, classes and in the community and I will forever be thankful to WMU for this. If I had to point out an area of improvement for this school, it would be their advisors. I wish someone stayed on top of my academics, extracurricular activities and career focus."

Graduation Year: 2016
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Western Michigan University. The education program has prepared me for a career in teaching by requiring courses covering all aspects of education. My concentration was in English literature, and the curriculum offered a wide variety of types of literature. Additionally, Kalamazoo is a great city to live in. There's always live music and so many great restaurants to choose from."

"Western Michigan University is a good school to go to most graduate programs do not require the GRE or GMAT..however if you do not get into your program of choice you are stuck with a degree that goes nowhere. You will need to go back for a masters degree.The University is very competitive!!"

Dana Schrader - 9/7/2016
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012
"As a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Business transfer to WMU, I fell in love with Cultural Anthropology and Global Studies. Upon meeting a vehement set of faculty from the get-go, I was astounded by the amount of research my professors had accomplished in various parts of the world. Their real-life experiences bridged the gap from remote locations on the globe to the classroom. They made me feel as if I too could do my part to make the world a better place. Classes were small and one-on-one contact with professors was encouraged. I even got the opportunity to study abroad in Costa Rica, for a similar cost as a semester at Western. I wish my program had included more networking/shadowing opportunities so I could see what the nature of the job market was, prior to graduation. My hopes for helping others through the framework of culture were met with requests to continue higher educational degrees. After gaining real world insight into the various fields and a period of time to make a small dent in my student loan debt, I have decided to return to a graduate program in Occupational Therapy at Western. I was pleased with the education I received the first time around at WMU and feel that my current degree has prepared me for my true calling as an OT."

"I had an incredible experience at Western. The staff, professors and students create a great campus community. My advice? Get involved in as much as you can - you'll meet and work with so many incredible people while building your resume and serving communities."

"Western Michigan University is a great school to pursue your bachelor's degree. Small enough to feel like a community, yet large enough to make you feel part of something grand. You will feel at home in Kalamazoo in no time."

"Great business school, that provides real world opportunities to assist companies. Offers the freedom to gain experience in the real world. Provides Innovative experiences for abroad, and occasional travel for courses. Large enough to be distant and lost on campus, and small enough to not be forgotten."
