Western michigan university is academically oriented and has quite a tough course schedule.
Tips: I didn’t get any scholarship but you will avail other benefits here. Transportation is free for WMU students. Faculty is good but can be better. The temperature here is very cold so be ready for that especially if you are from north or central India. Here are some Indian restaurants that I tried but I didn’t like them since the food is not spicy enough for an Indian maybe that’s more to cater for American taste buds. Before coming here get in touch with someone you know like I had a friend from work and maybe you can bond and start living together. Campus is not too big but it’s good you don’t need any rides inside. Overall it is average here.
Likes (Public transportation): Public transportation in the city is good. Also, for WMU students it's free of cost.

Smooth transition from a work-life in India to student life in tier-2 university in USA
Tips: Apart from all the relevant courses and graduation plans before starting your semester, try to avoid any possible graduation delay. Also, knowing the on-campus job options including scholarship opportunities in their respective departments help you plan finances accordingly. Look for off-campus living options as they are cheaper, safer yet closer to the campus to avoid any additional expenses.
Likes (Student Life): I've never felt out of place ever since I landed in the city. It could possibly be due to, but not limited to, a lot of Indian students around me. Also, ample options as far as fun, part time, internships, and life on campus is concerned. You'll never feel left out, the community is very welcoming. The smoothest transition you could ever imagine.
Dislikes (Safety): Though I've personally never felt unsafe even at odd hours. But we do hear some news once in a while pertaining to student safety on the university blog, that raises a question about overall safety. Once in a while, you might come across news that's disturbing but it's very rare. Mostly it's in the residential areas of the town way far from the student residences. Moreover, there's a dedicated police department for the university significantly taking care of student safety.

WMU is a good pricey university with a lot of degrees to choose from.
Tips: Kalamazoo is a small town. If you're a Muslim then you'll have problem finding halal food. There are very few options for assistantship too and it's pretty hard to find them. There are a lot of off-campus housing options and they're pretty cheap. Learn to cook before you come here, you'll need it!
Likes (Public transportation): University provides free transportation anywhere across Kalamazoo (city where the university is located). They also provide good maps and timely updates on buses. There are very few buses running on Sundays, so you might need to find a way for the weekends. Cabs are rare and expensive, but the buses are good and you can manage with them.
Dislikes (Indian Food): I am an Indian Muslim and I only eat halal food. There are barely any restaurants that serve halal and probably none to very few Indian restaurants. There is a subway on campus and there is a huge building dedicated for food and it has a lot of options from Pizzas to salads, and burgers to noodles. You'll get everything on campus made fresh. This is where you can start your first job and get a social security number too.
