Advice for Freshman

Going to college can be intimidating and may be a bit overwhelming. Some of you might have never been away from home for such a long period of time. I was in the same position as many of you and I was pretty nervous but the best thing I did was get involved! WMU has so many registered organizations that you could join. It's a great way to make friends and find what you love.

About Sherman

Hey guys my name is Sherman and I am a freshman majoring in aviation flight science. I am originally from Columbia, Maryland, a suburb right outside of Baltimore. I graduated from Wilde Lake High School in 2012 with a pretty big graduating class of about 400 people.

There are thousands of college and universities and picking the right one can be difficult. Coming to Western though was a pretty easy decision for me because The College of Aviation at WMU is one of the best in the world with the most advance aircraft and equipment the industry has to offer. It is also highly respected in the aviation industry and having that pedigree really helps you stand out once you have graduated and are looking for a job.

I would have to say Western has a very active social life. There are so many organizations you can join in pretty much anything you can possibly think of. One of the organizations that I'm involved is Drive Safe Kalamazoo, which is a nonprofit organization offering free nonjudgmental car rides home to Western students picking them up from anywhere in Kalamazoo. Living on campus in any of the residence halls is a great experience. The residence halls offer a vibrant environment with students who may have similar interests. I currently live in the residence halls and it has been one of the greatest experiences of my college career. I have met so many people and it has been really easy to make friends, because there are people living right next to you going through the same things as you. Having that support system right there is like having a home away from home.
