management skills now, because you will definitely need them when you get to
Hey! My name is Barbie and I graduated in 2009 from Hastings High School. My graduating class was about 200 students so I came from a fairly average school. In high school I was involved in Student Council, Fellowship of the Christian Athletes, Excel Club, Pride Club, Varsity Golf and Varsity Tennis. This is my second year at WMU and I love it! GO BRONCOS! I am majoring in Biomedical Sciences and plan to specialize in neurology.
As a high school senior I had four colleges that I was looking to possible attend. I applied to all four of them and got accepted. I really didn’t know what to look for in a college, so I took a tour of each campus. On the tour for Western Michigan University I fell in LOVE. Western accommodated me so well and catered to each of my personal needs. I really felt like I belonged to a family. So, obviously I choose to attend WMU and have not regretted it since! I am majoring in Biomedical Sciences primarily to become a specialist in neurology. I love biology and the medical field, so it just made sense for me to pursue a career in Biomedical Sciences!
I am involved in the Christian organization His House. We care for all students and have a special interest in international students. In my free time I am a “conversation partner” with international students. This is a fun activity and we always need students to get involved! I also am involved with the Lee Honors College. It is such a great opportunity to get involved. The Lee Honors College is full of so many awesome people its impossible not to love them!! I love going to WMU sporting events and being a BRONCO!!
