About Aderonke

Hello! My name is Aderonke. I am from Detroit, Michigan and I'm a junior at WMU. I attended Cass Technical High School in Detroit, and I graduated in 2010. I was involved in many performing arts and community service programs because I love singing and working with others.

I considered a lot of schools before I chose the university I would attend. I knew I wanted to stay in state, so I looked mainly at schools in Michigan. I came to Western for a campus visit and I really liked the campus. The people were very friendly and kind. I felt so welcome! All throughout the semester, WMU kept in touch with me. Those encounters showed me how personal the University is and I really appreciate that. I decided to come to Western because I felt like I could be an individual here. I didn't want to go to a school where I was just another student in the population. I wanted to be able to really experience the University and the people. I believe Western Michigan is the perfect place for me to do that.

After some research, I was excited to find that Western had a great Dietetics program. Now that I am a dietetics major, I really enjoy my classes and my interest in nutrition grows more every day. I am so excited to start my career as a dietitian. I really enjoy how active student life is on campus. There is always some kind of exciting or informative event going on. I am involved in a couple different Registered Student Organizations. I am in CAB (Campus Activities Board), Cru (Campus Crusades for Christ), B.A.S.A (Bronco African Student Association) and Joppa Christian Organization. The organizations on campus are really diverse so there really is something for everyone. I would encourage all students to get involved on campus. I met some of my closest friends through student organizations.
