Student Reviews

A dream does not become reality with magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Overall, education is good. You always learn something new and you have the opportunity to join any club to develop more skills for your career and life. I did not like that there are no hands-on projects or labs in WMU at all, they are limited, and as an engineer, it hurts my career and the ability to develop new skills.

Support Fosters Strong Students
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Overall, my study experience at my university was pretty successful. I had a good amount of support from advisors, professors, and peers and I feel that I learned the importance of time management. The most difficult part was definitely the change to all virtual learning. I didn't feel that same level of support from my professors and had to adjust and learn by myself.
