Students compiling 100 WMU points of pride

Jan. 30, 2008

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's student government is compiling "100 Points of Pride" about WMU and is seeking submissions, primarily from students.

Western Student Association President Christopher J. Praedel unveiled the project at today's WSA meeting and announced that a Web page has been created to accept suggestions for inclusion in the 100 Points of Pride. For each submission they make, WMU students will be entered automatically in a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to the WMU Bookstore. Submissions may be made beginning immediately and continuing through Tuesday, Feb. 12.

Go to www.wsa.wmich.edu/100 to submit points of pride.

Anyone may submit as many points of pride as they wish. The final list, however, will be compiled entirely by students.

A selection committee of nine students will review all submissions and will weigh each based on a variety of criteria, including prominence or uniqueness to the University and number of different people submitting a particular point of pride. Points may be from any period in WMU history. Additional criteria can be found on the submission Web page.

The final list will be announced at the March 26 WSA Senate meeting and will be available online in WMU News and through a variety of other print and electronic media.
