KALAMAZOO -- Graduate and nontraditional (those over age 25) students will have the chance to become better acquainted with Western Michigan University during an event Wednesday, Aug. 22.

The annual Graduate and Nontraditional Student Services Fair will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. in the North Ballroom of the Bernhard Center. As many as 400 students are expected to attend and take advantage of the opportunity to take care of such business as securing a student identification card, establishing a WMU computer account and even having their blood pressure checked.

Representatives from about 40 University offices and departments will be on hand to meet with students and discuss the services and resources that are available to assist them. Free parking, refreshments and on-site child care will be provided. In addition, door prizes will be awarded, including three credit hours of in-state graduate tuition and a $150 voucher for a Division of Continuing Education course.

For more information, contact Paula Boodt in the Graduate College at 616 387-8204 or Natalie Morton in the Division of Continuing Education at 616 387-4167.
