Bronco Bash is WMU’s annual welcome back festival which assists students in transitioning to campus life each fall. An estimated 15,000 students and community members attend annually. Over 450 booths participate to share information, market services, and sign-up volunteers. Booths include registered student organizations, campus departments, local businesses, and community organizations. This celebration of the WMU and Kalamazoo communities is unlike any other event, don’t miss your opportunity to attend, or get involved with this tradition!
Bronco Bash also provides live entertainment in the form of local bands. Novelty attractions are available free of charge and food is available for purchase. It is the perfect way for students, especially first-year and transfer students, to connect with Western's Campus and the Kalamazoo Community! Attend Bronco Bash and find out about ways to get involved in student groups on campus, what there is to do in the Kalamazoo community, and meet new people.
