*9 of 10 undergraduate WMU HCoB students are actively engaged within weeks of graduation. Translation: our students get great jobs.

WMU: No. 1 in Michigan for earnings by graduates from all backgrounds

I have been at WMU for 23 years and have interacted with thousands of WMU students, alumni, and employers. I personally think our brand is that WMU allows our students to go on and live the American Dream (we have data that proves that). The vast majority of our graduates go on to do so and many of them would not have done so had they never attended WMU. This brand would resonate so well with so many people out there (in my opinion).  WMU = VERY satisfying careers and life satisfaction.  

This Michigan school just landed a record gift for a public university: $550 million
