Happy Finals!

| WMU

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! Only one week of exams is standing between me and my summer (read: between me and a full time). I am one of those people who needs to multitask–I don’t fair well with the whole “lock yourself on the top floor of the library…

Exam Week Survival

| WMU

The really cool thing about college (and Western specifically) is that our summer break starts way earlier than high school! We get four whole months off from the spring to fall semester to work, take even MORE classes, or just hang out and do summery things. The less cool thing about college is that in…

OUTspoken Dragshow

| WMU

This Wednesday, the Gay-straight alliance organization put on their annual Drag show! It was a wonderful event that included performers from the greater Kalamazoo area, as well as the WMU community. The event drew in around 250 audience members and had eighteen acts. I was very impressed by the talent that we have here at WMU.…

Chicago for the Summer!

| WMU

I can’t believe that my junior year here at WMU is almost over. At this point, we’ve got about two weeks left of class, and then exams! I’m so, so excited because I just recently got offered an internship in Niles, Illinois! I’m going to be working with Specialty Print Communications on a campaign they…

How-To: Decorate Your Residence Hall

| WMU

When I first got to Western, I was desperate to make my new room feel homey and have it fit my personality. Thankfully, I had a roommate who had a very similar personal style to me and together, we were able to find some easy, cheap ways to make our room cute! Firstly, we each…

Central States Communication Association conference

| WMU

This past week was one of the busiest that I have ever lived in my entire life. Not only did I have tons of work to submit for my senior honors thesis for the Lee Honors College, but I had to travel mid-week for a conference in Minneapolis. The documentary that I will be submitting…

Final Choral Showcase

| WMU

This Saturday, the vocal music department closed out our season with our annual Choral Showcase! It was a marvelous event featuring many entertaining and educational pieces for us! This year in Collegiate Singers has changed my life. I have become a better vocalist because of it, and it has helped me immensely with stress management!…

Study Abroad Part II

| WMU

Hey, all you Broncos! Guess who is studying abroad…again? THIS GIRL. I will be travelling to Austria for a six-week opera program! Gotta brush up on some German, because I’m going to be there for awhile. While I’m there, I will have private lessons with some really cool professionals, master classes, lessons on lessons on…

Water Street Coffee

| WMU

I love coffee. And I don’t mean coffee drinks that are 80% sugar–I wake up in the morning slowly and with a large cup of extra hot black coffee. And if I’m forced to go without, then my friends are forced to deal with a grouchy and very sassy Laura. But every now and then,…

Final Countdown!

| WMU

Graduation is approximately 32 days away!! I will officially be a graduate of Western Michigan University, and I will officially be one step closer to my dream. For the seniors in high school, you’re in your season for prom and graduation and getting ready to explore the world of college! The older I get, the…

For when you’re running late…

| WMU

Good morning, sleepy Broncos! So, in honor of me waking up late this morning, I will share with you a fabulous buzzfeed article I found! Sorry short-haired Broncos, it’s geared toward the Broncos with long luscious locks…but what do I know? Your hair might be longer and more luscious than mine. SO! When you wake…

New Experiences, Courtesy of WMU

| WMU

This past weekend, I got to represent the WMU Women’s Rugby team in Washington D.C. at the Ruggerfest tournament! It was a great experience and a LOT of fun. I’m definitely a little sore and sunburnt at the moment, but it was well worth it. We got to play three games, against George Mason University, Catholic…

Sick Days

| WMU

Now, I don’t know about you, but when I get sick–even if it’s just a little cold, I turn into a complete overly dramatic baby. I act like the world is ending and I’m on my death bed. My friends quickly learned this about me, and now tell me as soon as I mention that…

Getting my hands dirty in Graphic and Printing Sciences

| WMU

I consider myself to be a lucky college student in that I really, really love my major. The best part of college is that you’re finally picking what YOU want to study and take classes in and pursue a career that you really like, but unfortunately people still pick majors for the wrong reasons, like…

Staged Reading! This Friday!

| WMU

Hi, Broncos? Are you bored on your Friday afternoons? Have nothing to do? Falling into the Friday slump? Well, look no further for your Friday entertainment! This Friday at 2pm in the Gilmore Theatre Complex is an event that has never happened before. Something so daring, so brave, so provocative I might say, it might…
