Ackley/Shilling is a relaxed building with a mixture of first year, transfer and returning students. The residents are an active group, so there’s always an event or social networking opportunity happening in the hall. Residents like chilling in the lounges or grabbing a meal together. Shilling Hall transfer residents live in single rooms that are provided at a discounted rate during their first academic year at WMU.
