Advice for Freshman

My biggest piece of advice for prospective students is to get as much out of college as you possibly can. Getting involved opened so many different doors and opportunities for me that I would never have gotten at a different university.

About Katie M

My name is Katie, and I am from the Southwest suburbs of Chicago. I went to high school at Plainfield North and graduated in 2010 and I came to Western Michigan University in fall 2010.

I went to quite a few different college presentations and tours. My parents had me go to small schools, medium sized schools, and large schools. We looked to see which one had the best fit for what I wanted. I fell in love with Western when I came on a visit with my best friend in the fall and brought my parents back with me when I went and competed in the Medallion Competition in January. Western was an easy choice for me, because the major that I wanted was in the top thirty out of one hundred and twenty schools. I am studying interdisciplinary health services, and want to get my graduate degree to be a physician assistant. I always knew I wanted to go into the health care field and Western was able to help me find out that a physician's assistant is exactly what I want to be.

I am involved in the Lee Honors College, as well as Greek life. I was the vice-president of my sorority, Chi Omega. I also put on a golf-outing for the Make-a-Wish foundation. I have enjoyed my time here at Western, and cannot wait to see what my last year has to offer. I enjoy going shopping in the Kalamazoo area, as well as the mall out in Portage. I spend the majority of my time on campus with friends, or in my favorite spot at the Waldo library.
