It’s all about you and your success here at Western Michigan University! Success at WMU is a large-scale campus commitment to build on past WMU success with community experiences. The initiative ensures that you, as a new first-year or transfer student, will be a part of a success group led by a peer leader and assisted by faculty and staff throughout your entire first year.  

The groups are intended to not only help welcome and orient you, but also aid you in building skills and making the connections essential for success in college.

You will learn more about this program at June Orientation and at Fall Welcome.  You’ll also meet your peer mentor, with whom you will be working this fall and spring.
