Laker Voices

If you ask our alumni what it means to be a Laker, you’ll consistently hear that all Lakers share some things in common. Things like a diverse perspective and a willingness to embrace new ideas; a curiosity and passion for learning, often inspired by working closely with a professor who became a personal mentor. You’ll also hear about the value of service to others and giving back, learned as much outside the classroom as in it, through the West Michigan community, clubs or organizations, study abroad experiences, or simply engaging in campus life.
