Hi! My name is Erin and I am the biggest Bronco fan you will ever meet! I am currently in my sophomore year at WMU. I graduated from West Bloomfield High School in 2008 with a class of nearly 600. WBHS was a large high school with over 2000 students. I did not want to go to an extremely large university but also knew I did not want to go to an extremely small one. In my family, I am the oldest child and the first child to attend college. I was not sure where I wanted to go at first, but I can say today that I cannot picture myself anywhere outside of WMU.

After a year of touring different universities, I chose WMU for many reasons. I loved how personal the campus felt and knew I would never feel like just a number here. Kalamazoo is about 2 hours from West Bloomfield, which was the perfect amount of distance for me. Next, WMU had great programs for what I wanted to study. WMU ended up being the perfect fit for me. Through my involvement on campus, I became passionate about leadership within organizations, so I am studying journalism and non-profit leadership with a focus on organizational communications.

I love being involved on campus. I work as a Student Ambassador and as a writer for the school paper. In my free time, I am the Vice President of Hillel, the Jewish student organization on campus and I serve as the University Pride Chair for WSA Student Government. I enjoying being a member of a social sorority, and on the weekends I like to volunteer for Drive Safe Kalamazoo. This year, I co-founded a student organization, “The Pink Ladies”, to create breast cancer awareness on campus. I love WMU because anyone can do anything, like starting your own club. Mainly, I love WMU because it has given me so many things to be passionate about.
