One Stop Service Center in Bernhard reprised
Jan. 4, 2006
KALAMAZOO--The One Stop Service Center, first introduced last fall, will be used again this month to ease students' entry into Western Michigan University's spring semester.
The center will begin operation in the East Ballroom of the Bernhard Center Saturday, Jan. 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and continue Monday through Wednesday, Jan. 9-11, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The center is designed for students and their parents to take care of last-minute business associated with starting the new semester. WMU spring semester classes begin at 4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9.
The One Stop Service Center provides one central location where students can check class schedules, inquire about financial aid, check course registration, purchase parking permits, secure employment leads, pay bills, and get immunization and other health care information.
Bronco ID cards are being processed near by in room 215, and as an added convenience, there is a textbook pre-order pick-up station on the Bronco Mall level of the building.
"This was an enormously popular feature of the fall semester, and we plan to continue offering this service to our students," says John Beacon, WMU vice provost for enrollment management. "It's a convenient way to take care of many campus business needs in one location, so students can avoid going from building to building. Normal January weather should make this initiative even more popular this time around."
The center is being staffed by representatives from 12 administrative units: admissions and academic advising, cashiering, Career and Student Employment Services, customer account services, Dining Services, financial aid and scholarships, information technology, payroll, parking services, Residence Hall Life, Registrar's Office, and Sindecuse Health Center.
