Student life is an important and dynamic component of an active university experience. Western Michigan University offers many student organizations, clubs and recreational activities to help students engage in campus life, and to become active members of the WMU community. Each student is encouraged to grow both academically and personally, and to become participating university members. Visit the Student Affairs web page to learn more about the full range of personal enrichment opportunities.
Senior Prom is an elegant and nostalgic evening of dancing and entertainment that bridges the generations between WMU students and Kalamazoo-area senior citizens. The annual event includes live Big Band music, swing and ballroom dancing, and Bingo. To play off of this year's "Night Out in Vegas" theme, blackjack and roulette tables will be available for some added fun—no money needed.
Pre-entertainment begins with Bingo at 5 p.m., the casino tables will open at 6 p.m., and the dance will run from 7 to 10 p.m. Refreshments and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
