Keypad Changes

The four-digit keypad codes to rooms in Dunbar, Kohrman, Moore and Sangren have been changed. Building coordinators have been notified and will be distributing the new codes to department staff and instructors.

Fall Welcome

The Fall Welcome program begins today to assist our first year students in making the academic and social transition to college. We are expecting close to 3,000 students will be attending this four day event.

One of the highlights of Fall Welcome is the Matriculation Ceremony where the class of 2015 will be formally welcomed to WMU. The Matriculation Ceremony will be held on Wednesday, August 31 at 10:00 a.m. in Miller Auditorium. Pizza with the Profs will follow at 11:15 a.m. in Miller Plaza.
