I've seen plenty of good things and aBrightMechanical Engineering
I've seen plenty of good things and a few bad things while being at this university. The best thing about Western are it's students, 90% percent of them are extremely friendly and accepting. I've never felt so at home in my life. But the condition of the campus and reputation of the school ruins what is really there. College is what you make it, so don't complain about where you are. Also if you want to go somewhere else then pay the extra money and don't complain to people about a college that you settled for. (that's to all the MSU rejects, please leave)

I am a first year student and thisBrightCriminal
I am a first year student and this school sucks! Students are rude and unapproachable. The faculty and facilities are nice. There is barely any night life. If you don't know someone that has an apartment you SOL! The dorm life sucks ass. I've had two roommates and I definitely didn't get along with either of them. The ra's are either great or they are complete assholes. A lot of the students are either alcoholics, druggies, or bitches! there's no winning when you come here. I can't wait to transfer in the fall
