Advice for Freshman

My advice to future broncos is to get involved and be yourself. I've made some of my best friends by joining organizations and they're very fun. Find a balance that's comfortable for you to achieve good grades and still make great memories. Be prepared to learn the fight song and make sure you memorize it; people sing it all of the time at sporting events or just because. Don't worry, it's very catchy!

About Marshell

Hello =) My name is Marshell and I'm currently a Freshman at Western Michigan University. I'm from Battle Creek, MI; which is about 30 minutes away and I attended Battle Creek Central High School. I'm a 2012 graduate and absolutely love being a bronco! In High School I participated in volleyball, basketball, tennis, Marching/Concert band, Student Government, and National Honors Society. I was very involved and WMU offers plenty of great opportunities to keep busy by being involved.

When it came to deciding on college, I actually had no idea I was going to attend WMU until December of my senior year. I applied to a lot of colleges and went on many tours, but no school caught my eye. When I attended a WMU Open House, I fell in love with this school. The campus was beautiful, had a comfortable environment, everyone was extremely friendly, tons of programs to get involved in, and I could definitely see myself attending. To top everything off, WMU has a wonderful education program! After touring WMU, I officially claimed being a bronco!

College life is amazing! You meet tons of people that you form fun memories with. My first semester here, I instantly got involved in a student organization. I'm currently a member of YBBW (You Beautiful Black Woman), the GRASS Roots mentor program, and I'm also in the TRIO FESP (Future Educator Support Program) program. Living in the residence halls made college even more exciting because it's impossible to be bored and you're right by the Dining Halls which always have tasty food/desserts prepared. When I wasn't in class, I spent time studying, working out in the Student Recreation Center, taking zumba classes, hanging out with friends, attending Miller Movies or plays, and going to FREE events held on campus. My first year has definitely been a year to remember because it's always a great day to be a bronco.
