Fair presents students with campus leadership opportunities

Jan. 9, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Students looking to get involved with the University as campus leaders will have a chance to do some one-stop shopping by attending Western Michigan University's second annual Leadership Fair from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14, in Rooms 208 and 209 of the Bernhard Center.

Called "Focusing on your Future," the event will allow students to connect with numerous University departments, offices and volunteer organizations. Students will be able to use these connections to learn about the wide variety of leadership development positions available across campus.

The Leadership Fair, which is free and open to all WMU students, is being sponsored by Student Activities and Leadership Programs. Refreshments will be served. About 75 students attended last year's fair.

The 2003 event will feature recruiters for a wide variety of campus leadership positions, including Bronco ambassadors, orientation student leaders, sexual health peer educators and Students Socializing Sober mentors.

In addition, a representative from the Office of Alumni Relations will be on hand to provide information about leadership opportunities available through WMU after graduation.

For more information or to obtain a complete list of Leadership Fair participants, call Alison Karwan at (269) 387-2115 or visit the Student Activities and Leadership Programs Web site at <www.salp.wmich.edu/leadership fair>.
