“I started as a math education major butBrightMath
I started as a math education major but will be changing to elementary education. The math education department faculty are horrible. They are self absorbed and lazy and could care less about the students. I have come to believe the math department in general is 'faculty driven' rather than 'student driven.' WIU is concerned with low enrollment in math majors and this is why. If they stopped emphasizing the faculty's needs and concentrated on student needs it would be better. Math education faculty are the worst. I know I will do better in the education dept. than the college of arts and sciences.

I wouldn't attend WIU again, unless there was no other choice available. The academics are shoddy and you get the degree by paying your tuition and simply showing up. They continue to lower the entrances standards in order to "diversify" and get state and government funds. If you are anything above a C student, or have hopes of pushing yourself, WIU should be scratched off your list. If you are low/no income and simply want a cheap and easy degree, this is the place to do it. No one fails if you continue to pay. The board of trustees degree is popular among those who can't make the grade for a standard degree. There used to be pride in being a WIU alumn, but not since they dropped the entrance qualifications. Instructor quality is diminishing because of this also, with "diverse" discount professors, often complained about for being unable to speak clear English, others who have trouble attending their own classes and others who simply stamp on a grade if the paper meets the page requirements, without more than a skim through, at most.
