My name is Tamara. I’m a third year student here at Western Michigan University. I transferred to WMU after my first year at a community college. Currently my majors are business and psychology. Transferring to WMU to continue my education has honestly been the best decision that I’ve ever made. Attending a university was something that I’ve always dreamed about, but didn’t really think was an option. Western Michigan University turned my dream into a reality through the Seita Scholars Program. Seita Scholarships are offered to youth who have been or are presently in foster care.
Currently through the Seita Office I’m going to be working with incoming Seita Scholars for Seita Early Transition (S.E.T) week. This is pretty much another form of orientation just for incoming Seita scholars. I’m so excited to begin the program; it starts on July 15th & runs through July 20th! Upcoming in the fall I will be a peer leader for the incoming Seita Scholars as well as a teacher assistant for their First Year Seminar (FYS) class.
Greek Life is also something I’m involved in on campus. Out of the eight different sorority houses on campus I’m lucky enough to be a part of Alpha Xi Delta!! I’ve met a lot of great people through Greek Life and I’m excited to see all the new potential members the fall will bring in!
Looking forward to telling you all about my S.E.T week experience! <3
