Begin your journey
I am very thankful for the community that WMU dance has with both faculty and students. Everyone in the program is always there for you, will check up on you, and will push you to be the best version of yourself. I am forever thankful for the friendships that I've been able to make with people in the department, and I know that they are strong because of the way we build each other up in class.
Emily Hill, Dance major
I was drawn into the program because of the training and opportunities for all students. Knowing that they don’t treat freshmen any differently when it comes to casting or anything else was very inspiring. I felt like I could establish myself and be somebody here.

Life on campus
From seeing a performance to meeting your friends for chicken chili at Sprau, there is always something to do on campus. On-campus housing includes traditional residence halls, apartments and living styles in between! You may choose to live with other artists in the Fine Arts House or you might find your home in the Spectrum House learning community.
There are so many ways to get involved.
