Welcome

Congratulations on your decision to attend Western Michigan University. You will soon join the many proud Broncos that are part of the WMU family.  Your college years are a time of learning, exploration and self-discovery and there are many opportunities waiting for you.  Your WMU journey begins with summer orientation. You will make great connections with faculty and staff as well as other new students, many of whom could become your friends for life. You will leave orientation with a lot of Bronco pride and the excitement of returning in August to begin your collegiate journey.
