Don't take the negative comments too seriously without considering the positive ones.

Although WMU is a party school and very cliquey, there are great groups of people who take academics seriously. It wouldn't be a university if neither the students or faculty majority cared.

Here is my dorm advice: if you're a partier, the dorms are for you. If you're not a partier, I'd recommend the dorms the first year anyways. It is a great experience you can add to your life story.. By the end of the first year, you should be able to have met a few non-partiers you can room with.

As for the academics, I don't think it's fair for me to judge until I've used my diploma. The gen eds are annoying, but this is true at all liberal arts schools. The school isn't terribly tough.

University is what you make of it.
