Degree: Fashion
Graduation Year: 2015
"I loved Western Michigan University as a school. Kalamazoo is a great town with many things to do within the city and neighboring towns. The Textiles and Apparel program however lacked the realistic experience that I needed as a student."

"I would recommend going to KVCC first (sister school) prior to attending here in order to knock out pre-req courses first and save money. Overall, WMU is just like any other university or college in that you will learn at a higher education level and will be expected to pay your debts on time, even if they are lackadaisical with theirs. I enjoyed their online courses more than their brick and mortar ones simply because I could go at my own pace. Stay in contact with your advisor, don't try to do it yourself or you won't get 'locked into' a plan for completion (more classes will be added every year). Parking is bad here."

"Undergrad was a lot of fun, and an essential step in learning to live on my own. Unfortunately I was completely underwhelmed by the academic curriculum. It seemed like a minor extension of high school, and not really engaging. Once I got into grad school, I really started to feel challenged and was incredibly engaged. Getting my masters degree is a major reason as to why I'm as successful as I am today."

"I made use of every opportunity available to me to learn everything I could. Every college is what you make of it. WMU provided me with everything that I needed to be successful in life."

Elizabeth - 8/6/2014
Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2017
"The school of music is a small community within the college. Many of the teachers and staff get to know students personally, and treat you as if you are not just a number. I felt as if it was an atmosphere that helped me thrive."

"Western Michigan University has an excellent college of business. The Integrated Supply Management program has exceeded my expectations in what I thought it could ever offer. The professors care a great deal about teaching you the right material and helping you become successful. I'm currently interning with a company and the classes I was guided to take have been very relevant in the work I've done this summer. Further more, WMU requires supply chain students to take engineering classes as well as SAP classes that put you way ahead of students from other schools. The degree requires double the amount of credits that most other schools facilitate and it shows in the work we're able to do for companies. The professors help with providing in person opportunities (for networking or skill building) as well as endless emails of job and internships that you can apply for and these opportunities have helped immensely. There is also a career center that is available to help for finding opportunities, strengthening skills, and asking for advice. There are so many great staff members willing to help you along your way to getting your degree. I couldn't recommend a better degree or better school."
