Life from Upperclassmen Status

| WMU

Each year as school begins to roll around, I begin getting my things together: mentally preparing to be in classes, not in leisure mode and just ridding myself in general of the things we take for granted in the summer. However this year, the fall semester crept up on me and smacked me flat on…

PSST…

The Lee Honors College is one of my favorite parts about WMU. The opportunities that the college provides are so vast and varying. Here are some of the biggest “plusses” of the Honors College according to Jasmine: Priority registration for honors students aka Jasmine does not ever have a class before 11am Availability of honors…

Summer is Coming to a Close

| WMU

Wowee! These past two weeks have been such a whirlwind! As the summer is winding down, I want to take a moment and appreciate the things that I have been able to do this summer: – Spent a month in Germany traveling from city to city, learning about the culture and business practices of their…

Leading the Bronco Way

| WMU

Ever since elementary school I have been involved in leadership activities in and out of school. (4th grade Class President, right here!) Throughout high school I traveled to conferences and camps with the Michigan Association of Student Councils and Michigan Association of Honors Societies and gained tools for my toolbox on how to be a…

This has been my first summer living in an apartment, and I have learned many valuable things. So here are my top 5 points on apartment living: Roommates: Having male roommates was just about the best choice I could have made for myself this summer.

A Life Lesson from Yours Truly

| WMU

This summer, I have been focusing a lot of my energy on school and work, so that I can finish classes on time and have money to feel comfortable financially throughout the school year. What I mean by graduating on time is that since I switched my major relatively late in the game from one…

Happy Freedom Day!

| WMU

It seems to be that the theme of this summer is “The Summer of Firsts”. First apartment, first 9 to 5 job, first summer in Kalamazoo, and what we’re going to talk about in this post: the first summer without my parents on the 4th of July.  I have a pretty large extended family –…

Summer Lovin’

| WMU

As I am now going into my junior year here at Western and staying in Kalamazoo for the summer, I am learning so much about the surrounding community. It can be really easy to become wrapped up in academics and on campus events during the school year. Being here in the summer feels like a…

Potsdam, Germany!

| WMU

The first Friday of our excursion we ended up in a city called Potsdam, specifically at Uni Potsdam. We spent all day meeting master’s students and working with them on a case competition. As I have mentioned before, aside from learning about the culture and business environment of Germany, this trip had a secondary element…

Next Up: Wolfsburg!

| WMU

Our second city we visited was Wolfsburg, the location of the world headquarters of Volkswagen. It was so fun! We were not allowed to take photos inside of the plant, but we received a plant tour on a giant Volkswagen convertible. After zipping around and watching a car being built from just unpolished parts to…

Alright, my friends: I have decided that the best way to document my trip is through dialoging by city since we traveled so much. Just as a reminder for those who might just be tuning in: our trip was two weeks of touring and one week of classwork in a city called Paderborn (do not…

Back and rollin’!

As you may know if you have read some of my previous posts, I just got back from studying abroad! My next few entries are going to highlight some of the incredible places that I visited while studying abroad in Germany. I had absolutely no time to blog while there, so I am going to…

Guess where I am…

| WMU

GERMANY! Currently, I am in my little room in the hostel that I am staying in until Monday when the rest of the class gets here. Now, I know what you think when you read the word “hostel”. I thought it had a pretty bad connotation before coming here too. When I think of a…

It’s finals week!

| WMU

Wow-wee! This semester ended! I took my last final yesterday, Finite math (my last pre-business course before I declare my Marketing major – woohoo!). Today I had work in the Admissions Office from 8am to 11:30am, during which I wrote my final paper for my National Government class. I truly do not suggest this plan…

Wednesday Wrap-Up

| WMU

Hi! I have learned a lot this semester about balancing my time, and delegating things that need to get done with my service fraternity. This has been a great learning experience for me as to what I want to occupy my time doing, and what I may be interested in doing for my future. This…
