As part of his service-learning project, one of our YADC participants, Kyle, was able to experience "a day in the life" of a fashion student at WMU. Kyle observed two classes, learned about the Family & Consumer Sciences building, which houses the fashion programs, and interview a current student. Below is an excerpt from his interview:
Question #1: What is your major?
Response: “Fashion Merchandising.”
Question #2: Do you have a minor? If so what is it?
Response: “Yes, Gender Women’s Studies.”
Question #3: What made you interested in the fashion/design program at WMU?
Response: “I’ve always enjoyed fashion and WMU is one of very few schools who have a fashion/design program.”
Question #4: What has been your experience at WMU overall?
Response: “I like my overall experience at WMU.”
Question #5: Do you wish your classes were a smaller amount of people and more intimate or larger and more distant?
Response: “I prefer the smaller classes with around 25 people one of my classes has 250 students which gets quite overwhelming.”
GREAT JOB KYLE! AND A BIG "THANK YOU" TO KAYLA AND TO WMU PROFESSORS KELLY AND ANNE MARIE FOR HOSTING OUR PARTICIPANT!
