Time's running out to contribute points of pride

Feb. 7, 2008

KALAMAZOO--The opportunity for Western Michigan University students and others to submit a point of pride about WMU expires at midnight Tuesday, Feb. 12.

WMU's student government, the Western Student Association, is compiling "100 Points of Pride" about WMU and is seeking submissions, primarily from students. For each submission they make, students will be entered automatically in a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to the WMU Bookstore.

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.

For more information, write to wsa-president@wmich.edu.
