I am CAS

The College of Arts and Sciences at Western Michigan University is home to 26 departments and schools and is responsible for providing the general education curriculum for all WMU students. It is with great pride and dedication that its faculty is able to teach half of the student credits at WMU. Realizing that the pride CAS faculty and staff have for this great college, we offer you a chance for to share your story of how CAS has impacted your educational goals and/or career plans. Briefly state, in one or two sentences, the impact that CAS has had in your life and you could win! CAS could represent an educational awakening, a professor who pushed you, a study abroad experience, a lesson in social responsibility, an interest in social justice, or the ability to critically think. No matter your story, tell us how CAS has shaped your collegiate experience.
