The Fall Welcome program begins tomorrow to assist first year students in making the transition to college. One of the highlights of Fall Welcome is the Matriculation Ceremony which will be held on Wednesday, August 29 at 10:30 a.m. in Miller Auditorium. Pizza with the Profs will follow in the Fountain Plaza.

You may have noticed the construction fences around Sangren have been removed. The building, which has been under construction since 2010, will be ready to hold its first classes on September 4. As of last week, 379 classes have been scheduled in the new Sangren Hall. The building will house over 200 instructors and 6,200 students during the Fall 2012 semester.
The 2.1 version of the WMU mobile app was released this week and it includes some new features for students. The smartphone app for the Android and iPhone will now allow students the ability to view their schedule of classes, midterm grades and final grades. We are also working on a mobile version of the catalog and hope to have that available in the next few weeks.
The four-digit keypad codes to rooms in Dunbar and Moore have been changed. Building coordinators have been notified and will be distributing the new codes to department staff and instructors.
There is a lot more to see! Visit some of our friends at WMU to learn about academics, costs of attendance, and campus life.
