About Reid

Hi, my name is Reid and I am a sophomore here at WMU! Graduated from Grosse Pointe North High school in 2011. I did not do too many extracurricular activities in high school but i would always play Frisbee with some friends. I transferred to WMU after taking 2 semesters at Macomb Community College. All through high school i planned on going to WMU for the Aviation program, but in the end i chose Geology as my major.

I have always looked in to going to Western Michigan because this school has programs that interested me. Originally i planned on entering the Aviation program, but now i am majoring in Geology. My sister is also a student here at WMU and showed me around campus. On that tour i found that i really liked the size and feel of this campus. I didn't just decide right then and there though. I also visited my brother at Michigan State and spent some time exploring their campus. I decided that WMU was the place for me! I talked to the Geology Department and found that Western was the school for me.

I love being a college student. After spending an extra year at home going to a community college i knew that i wanted to experience something new. At western i became involved with student organizations like the Campus Activities Board! This is where students vote on what entertainment we want to bring to our campus! With CAB (Campus Activities Board) i was given the importunity to go to a conference in Grand Rapids and a representative of Western Michigan University along with other CAB members. At this conference we spent a few nights in a beautiful hotel after reviewing musicians, magicians comedians and all different kinds of entertainers. I also spent time on the weekends attending the sports events, especially the hockey games! Being a Bronco is exciting and challenging but i love it!
