All of the faculty at this school are "inbred" - meaning they really mostly hire back people who have graduated there at some point in their lives. Staff know how to teach things the "western state" way but don't have much more experience beyond that which made my education feel remarkably limited providing only a narrow perspective on the arts. Its been difficult to get a job since as a degree from Western in the real world is pretty much a joke because of how they hire their faculty.
The school over all is a really good school. Res life is the worst part. The treat freshmen like they are gold and treat upper class people really badly. I if I was not in my 4th year I would have left
the school and social life is great however living in the dorms you will get scammed out of your money. The other day after returning from 3 hours of class and a lunch we get a knock on our door saying it smells like marijuana when we had been in our room for no more than 30 seconds, they intrude their way in our room saying it reeks when in reality it doesnt and it was our neighbors that were smoking. Tried to tell them that, they refused to listen and called the cops, soon we all got $130 tickets, they refused to check anywhere else and personally I believe they targeted our room simply because it is often people are in there however they would not listen to us and gave horrible attitudes. Agin social life is great, residence life faculty is awful!
