Case Study Of Social Media Orientation
Orientation is when most first year students start to feel excited and comfortable about coming to WMU. They meet new people, build lifelong relationship, and learn their way around campus.

The winners would come to the CAS advising office to retrieve their prizes once school starts. The goal is to create more reach to students at WMU and even people who do not go to
