3 students in front of plane in snow

Tax returns thousands of miles from home

Five WMU accountancy students and professor Fritz Allhoff, traveled to Alaska, helping to complete over 400 tax returns for rural communities. This is the fifth year of the program which serves clients in remote villages that often need to be accessed by plane and then snowmobile. Students are able to explore Alaska, immersing themselves in the culture, while also providing a vital service and honing their professional skills.

Greenleaf Trust scholarship helping WMU student blaze his own trail

With his double major in accounting and finance, Gerardo Ramos is proud to be a Greenleaf Trust scholar and excited to promote diversity in the finance industry. As the first in his family to attend college, Ramos has had to do a lot of self-navigation of the ins-and-outs of higher education. Not having to worry about the financial burden has allowed him to focus on academics and his numerous campus involvements.
