Visit Western Michigan University
There’s simply no substitute for seeing Western Michigan University for yourself and experiencing a little slice of what makes Western so unique and beloved. This way, whether you decide to see it up close and personal or virtually, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of what a Western education can really mean for you and your future. Explore the visit options for undergraduate students to see which program is the right fit for you. Graduate students are advised to review visit options through our Graduate College.
An in-person visit is a great way to really experience everything that Western has to offer and see if you can really picture yourself here. You’ll be able to meet and talk to current students, sit in on classes, eat in the dining hall, visit some of our housing options and do so much more. Be sure to register because we are unable to accommodate walk-in visitors at this time.
