Advice for Freshman

The best advice I can give is to get involved. You are only in college for a limited time and should make the most out of it. The more you get involved with, the more people you will meet and opportunities you will have.

About Jessica P

Welcome! I am Jessica, a sophomore here at Western Michigan University. I am studying communication with a minor in psychology and dance. I am from Park Ridge, Illinois and graduated from Maine South High School in 2011.

I decided I wanted to attend Western Michigan after coming on a bus tour from Chicago. Everyone I met at this school was very welcoming and friendly. After hearing everything Western Michigan had to offer, I felt that this school would really help make the transition from high school to college a lot easier. I searched Western Michigan's website to see the different majors they had and also the student life to see the programs I could get involved with and the activities that went on at this school. I found out there were many things to get involved in and different sporting events to attend. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to study at first, but I took a communication class and absolutely loved it, it was the best class I have ever taken. The communication professors are all great and this major has many different fields you can go into. I am minoring in psychology because I find it fascinating and it will help with any career. I am also minoring in dance because I have been a dancer for 16 years!

I lived in the residence halls last year and absolutely loved it! Coming from Chicago I barely knew anyone and it was a great experience to be able to meet new people. Many first year students live in the residence halls and it was great because my first friends at this school were the people I met on my floor. I am a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta honor society and a member of the Chi Omega sorority here on campus. I would encourage people to take a look into joining a sorority or fraternity because you gain many new friends, become exposed to different opportunities and help benefit the community by participating in different community service events.
