Storytelling has been used for generations as a way to communicate victories, accolades, traditions, and even at its most simplistic—the everyday lives of people. The stories posted on are those of our alumni, friends, students, faculty, and staff. Individually, they reveal the successes of the people in our community, but collectively, they weave a larger image of Western Michigan University.

All stories, whether they are short or long, whether they tell us about a major accomplishment or a new position, whether they are about a single occurrence or a lifetime of goodwill, are part of a larger story. Everyone connected to WMU has a role in our ongoing story—help us tell the story of Western Michigan University by sharing your own at
