Bronco Bash

Bronco Bash is WMU's annual welcome back festival, which assists students in transitioning back to campus life each fall.

More than 450 booths participate to share information, market services, and sign up volunteers. Booths include registered student organizations, campus departments, local businesses and community organizations. Bronco Bash also provides live entertainment in the form of local bands and national recording artists. Novelty attractions are available free of charge and food is available for purchase.

Students attend Bronco Bash to meet new people, find out about ways to get involved in student groups on campus and learn about what there is to do in the Kalamazoo community.

Bronco Bash is a student-coordinated event through WMU's Office of Student Engagement, formerly known as the Student Activities and Leadership Programs office.
