WMU’s Newest Alumnus

| WMU

Hey Broncos! I did it, I graduated! It feels like I was attending freshman orientation just yesterday. Time has flown by so quickly. The ceremony itself was really great. There was a great surprise in store for me. When I walked off the stage, several administrators who have mentored me throughout the years gave me…

Hanukkah in Kalamazoo

| WMU

Happy Hanukkah and finals week everyone! This has been the most exciting Hanukkah I have ever been at WMU during, thanks to the help of the Jewish community in Kalamazoo. I have never celebrated so many nights of the eight day holiday, often known as the festival of lights. On Thursday night, Hillel had a…

Where did the time go!?

| WMU

Happy Monday Broncos! Do you ever feel like life goes by super quickly? This past week went by so quickly for me! Even though I am still a couple of weeks from graduating, my time as a student leader at WMU is coming to an end. This past weekend, my sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, had…

Student Association of Michigan December Conference

Happy Monday Broncos! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent my weekend in Detroit at the December Student Association of Michigan conference.

Hey Broncos! I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving break and is ready for our last three weeks of the semester! I had a great break but know I am ready to come back to Kalamazoo to get ready for final exams and GRADUATION. Break was great, I had two days of family thanksgiving dinners…

Pre-Thanksgiving Break Excitement

| WMU

Hey Broncos! This was such an exciting weekend. After running the Turkey Trot 5K, my little sister left Michigan State University to visit me at WMU for the weekend. She had a great time in Kalamazoo. We ate in my favorite cafeteria, Bistro 3, with students from my First Year Seminar class, and got dessert…

Turkey Trot 5K Race at WMU

| WMU

Hey Broncos! I just finished the 2012 Turkey Trot. It was my second time doing it because I did it last year too. It was awesome! Surprisingly, I was not the only person wearing a goofy turkey hat. Even though it was 28 degrees when it began (and felt much colder), it was worth it…

Fall into Winter at WMU

| WMU

Hey Broncos! Can you believe how cold Kalmazoo is? Brrrrr. Make sure you stop by the Wesley Foundation for free coffee or the Honors College for free hot chocolate (Western Perks!). Despite the weather, its an awesome time of year because the Campus Beet student organization has their weekly Wednesday lunches again (in Wesley near…

GOTV @ WMU

Hey Broncos! I hope everyone has appreciated WMU’s Get out the Vote efforts as much as I have. This year, WMU’s administration has arranged to have multiple events on campus registering student to vote and to get them the facts that they need. In addition to this, Western Student Association has had many Get Out…

Welcome to open house at WMU!

Happy Friday Broncos! Today is an Open House Friday, which means hundreds of potential Broncos are visiting campus. Our four fall open houses are always so much fun. Today my coworkers and I were able to give tours to prospective students and answer questions on a panel. During the Organization Showcase I was at the…

Fall Festivities with WMU Hillel

Hey Broncos! Hope everyone’s week was fantastic. Mine has been great because I have been able to spend a lot of time with HIllel, WMU’s Jewish club. We have a LOT of new members this year which means lots of new programs. My favorite are Friday night Shabbats and social events at the coffee shop…

WMU Homecoming Campus Classic: 5K number 11

Hey Broncos! This past weekend I ran my ELEVENTH 5K race in the past 11 months. These 11 months have went by so quickly! I love donating to awesome nonprofit organizations through running, so every time I hear of a race I make sure to sign up. It was 40 degrees (such bad weather for…

2012 Sorority Formal Recruitment

Hey Broncos! I hope everyone who went through sorority recruitment had a great time. Congratulations to all 138 women who joined sororities. During recruitment, my job was to serve as a Recruitment Counselor, or Rho Gamma (it’s Greek to me, too). This job is similar to being a Fall Welcome leader, where campus leaders are…
