About Tamsey G

Hello! My name is Tamsen, but most people call me Tamsey. I was born and raised in Kalamazoo, MI.  Both of my parents work at this university, and I have always been active on Western’s campus. I have been involved in all different kinds of extracurricular activities since I was a little kid, and I knew I wanted to go into theater and music by the time I attended high school at Hackett Catholic Central, a small college prep school on the outskirts of Kalamazoo. My favorite color is purple, I have an intense fear of heights, and I happen to bleed brown and gold.
To be honest, I originally wasn’t planning on going to WMU. I initially wanted to go to a school in New York for musical theater, but it just wasn’t written in the stars for me. So, I decided to take a year at WMU to figure out where I wanted to transfer, and in the meantime, fell in love. It really hit me when I realized that every professor I had here knew me by name. So I decided to apply for the Vocal Performance major after my first semester, and I re-auditioned for the Theatre Performance major in my second semester. Looking back, I realized that there isn’t any other school I’d rather attend.  WMU is truly where I belong.
Outside of my double major and minor, which is hugely time-consuming, I am a part of a few different organizations on campus. I am a choir manager for Cantus Femina, the women’s chorus in the School of Music, and I am the Relations Officer for Omega Delta Epsilon, the choral service fraternity. I am on the Student Advisory Board in the Theatre Department, and have also previously worked in the Bookstore on-campus. I spent two years living in Siedschlag, the women’s fine arts residence halls, and spent my last May and June as a Student Orientation Leader.  I love getting as involved as possible in my departments, and at Western in general!
