Campus Programs

Western Michigan University (WMU) has a large variety of campus programs to engage students. These events are great ways to find out what is happening on campus and also feel connected with other students, campus life, and Kalamazoo as a whole. Attending these events truly enhances your college experience. Look below for some of our annual events!


Bronco Bash

Bronco Bash is WMU's annual welcome back festival that helps students transition into campus life each fall. Annually, an estimated 20,000 students and community members attend. In addition, over 450 booths participate as well. Booths include: registered student organizations (RSOs), campus departments, local businesses, and community organizations. Bronco Bash is a celebration of the community ties between WU and Kalamazoo. Not only is Bronco Bash the largest annual, on-campus event, but arguably the most influential.
