I love this school.BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I love this school. They are always working to improve the campus (which is slightly annoying because it feels like there is a new construction project every year, but all for the greater good I suppose). The campus is also like its own separate area from Kalamazoo, unlike other campuses where college buildings are mixed in with the city. There are a lot of campus housing options. The advisors aren't always helpful but many departments have multiple so you can always meet with someone else. Classes are challenging but most professors are more than willing to answer questions or meet during office hours. If you can't make office hours most will also schedule appointments. There are lots of groups and clubs for everyone, no matter what your interests are. If you get involved and do what you can to do well, you will absolutely love this school.

Worthless. They put youQuite BrightAerospace Engineering
Worthless. They put you back a year and treat you like garbage. This also isn't a drug free campus. Every inch off the tour rout is disgusting. All for show no actual education to find here avoid at all costs.

This university was horrible.BrightNursing
This university was horrible. With the exception of TWO teachers in two years (6 semesters), I hated it. All the teachers were rude and would only ever point out how you do something horrible rather then all the good stuff you had done. Also they never want to help you understand the concepts they are trying to teach, they just show up to get that fat check i'm sure the University pays them. Shout out to Caskey, best teacher in that hell hole. Loved her to death
