She cares more about Excess Competition than the average student.
Date: May 29 2005
Major: Anthropology (This Major's Salary over time)
I'm a third year student with a double in Anthropology and English. I transferred from a community college where, I might add, I received an education far superior to the one I am receiving at Western. If I knew then what I know now, I would have never even considered attending WMU.

Whilst reading through everyone else's comments, I am inclined to agree with all the negative aspects of this school. In the three years I've been here, Western has made a noticeable descent and I can't imagine it getting better. Even the teachers hate working here. If you've ever had a class with a teacher that hates their job, you know it affects the class structure and the quality of work that comes in and out. I feel the majority of my classwork has simply been busy work with no practical application to my experiences. The parking situation is awful, tuition keeps going up, the building are in need of repair and the majority of the students are a bunch of snobby elitists who lacked the GPA do get into a better school. I fail to see what these rising costs of tuition are going towards.
