Western Michigan University is not hell on Earth for everyone. But for me it is. I want to be as objective as possible when I say that this university is not for the serious student. IT IS NOT FOR THE SERIOUS STUDENT, or anyone who wants a LEARNING experience. I constantly felt out of place because I wasn't in to the party scene because most of the students who enjoy this university enjoy it for that reason alone. You do not have to take academics seriously at this school; I hardley worked for my 4.0 and was not challenged by the work, rather, I was annoyed by my work, which was usually ill suited for learning purposes.

The student body at Western is very adolescent in its behavior and approach to life. They are trendy, clique-ish, and defensive unless you are willing to fall in line with their "go with the flow" outlook (kinda ironic eh?). If you plan on taking academics seriously you will find you experience at Western very painfull!
