Graduate College hosts fall open house
Oct. 14, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Prospective graduate students are invited to expand their horizons by attending Western Michigan University's fall Graduate Program Open House Thursday, Oct. 22.
The free event will take place from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the North Ballroom of the Bernhard Center on the main campus in Kalamazoo. A special workshop on the graduate application process has been set for 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. in Room 213 Bernhard Center. No pre-registration is required for the workshop, which will cover the steps for enrolling in graduate study at WMU.
The annual fall open house is an opportunity to learn about the many graduate programs the University offers in Kalamazoo as well as its regional sites in Battle Creek, Benton Harbor-St. Joseph, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Muskegon and Traverse City.
Attendees will be able to talk with representatives from those academic programs as well as service units such as the Graduate College, which is sponsoring the event; Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships; and University Counseling and Testing Center. Refreshments will be served.
The open house is for working professionals, undergraduate students and others who are considering furthering their educations. It is especially helpful for those interested in multiple programs or undecided about a program, and those wishing to meet with faculty members who are conducting research or providing professional training in today's important fields.
WMU offers a wide range of graduate and professional programs, including 29 doctoral degrees, 67 master's degrees and graduate certificates in alcohol and drug abuse, educational technology, ethnohistory, health care administration, holistic health care, and nonprofit leadership and administration.
Free parking for open house attendees will be available in Parking Structure No. 1 at the corner of West Michigan Avenue and North Dormitory Road.
