Advice for Freshman

My advice to any incoming freshmen is to go experience anything and everything and to get involved. College is what you make of it, and if you put in the effort to grow as a person the rewards are irreplaceable.

About Kaitlin J

Hello, my name is Kaitlin. I am a Junior here at Western Michigan University. More specifically I am apart of the Haworth College of Business with a major in Human Resource Management and a Business minor. I am originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. I attended Sault Area High School and graduated in 2010. I played Basketball, Volleyball, and Softball during my High School career.

When it came to College I didn't really think about specific decisions and details until my Senior year. I always knew I wanted to go to college but I didn't really research and consider all of my options until it got close. I first went to college night to kind off gain knowledge of the different opportunities. From there I applied to every school I could. Then I scheduled a weekend to go visit all of my top choices to finalize my decision. Western Michigan University was my last stop and after the visit the most comforting feeling I had was knowing I could be successful here. Being from a small area in the Upper Peninsula I wanted to experience something bigger but not so big that I would be over –whelmed and WMU was the perfect balance between the two.

College life is very exciting in Kalamazoo. Not only does WMU provide all athletic games and fun events for free but the entire city of Kalamazoo takes pride in their amount of college life and provides reduced prices at restaurants and free perks regularly. There are Registered Student Organizations for almost anything you could ever imagine and if they don't have what you want you can create your own RSO. The biggest factor into my college life experiences were choosing to live in the Residence Halls for two years. Living on campus was very convenient and there were always opportunities to try new things and meet new people.
