WMU Ranked #1 As A ‘Hidden Gem’ University
Western Michigan University is the place to get your education!
Here in Kalamazoo we are lucky enough to have not 1 but 3 great schools for students to obtain a degree, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo College and Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Out of the 3, Collegegazette.com ranked WMU as the 'Best Hidden Gem' of schools, not only in town, but in the US. Here is some of what the site had to report about the school...
Several of the programs at Western Michigan are frequently listed among the very best in the country. Perhaps the most noted program at Western Michigan is its aviation curriculum, widely considered a top-5 program nationwide. With over 30 aircraft vehicles available for their students, Western Michigan provides hands-on, experiential training to future pilots and technicians.
Over the years we all have enjoyed the University, maybe it was football, Miller Auditorium, Bronco Bash or another great event hosted at the school. This article could not agree more with those of us that have gone to the school, or took part in their events...
Although the student life at Western Michigan is quite active, what makes Western Michigan special is the learning outcomes for all of its students. An impressive 91% find employment, military service, or full-time volunteering within three months of graduation; 85% of these say they find their work satisfying.
Proud to be apart of the WMU community!
