Hello! My name is Joe Bohland, and I am originally from Muskegon, Michigan. I received a B.S. in Advertising/Public Relations from Ferris State University in 1990 and am currently pursing an M.A. in Social Science at the University of Michigan-Flint. I have worked in higher education/admissions for fifteen years.
Some of the best features of the UM-Flint campus are our excellent faculty, great customer service, and a thriving campus life. Faculty interact with students in a small-class atmosphere and get to know you personally, mentoring students on research projects that will directly impact their future careers. Beginning with the Admissions office, we provide applicants with outstanding guidance through the admissions process, then the Academic Advising staff-as well as Academic departments-help with class selection and selecting a major. There are activities for every student to get involved with outside the classroom with over 100 academic, social, and sports clubs on campus.

Greetings! My name is Gale Glover. I was born and raised in Flint and have spent my entire life here. It’s a great place to live and go to school. Hopefully I can share my enthusiasm for the Flint area and the University of Michigan-Flint with you!
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree here at the University of Michigan-Flint where I majored in Criminal Justice, Sociology, and Africana Studies. As a continuing student here at UM-Flint where I’m pursuing my Masters of Public Administration degree, I’m excited to share my experiences with prospective students and look forward to answering questions about my alma mater.
Also, for the Mott Community College students who are interested in transferring or becoming a part of our Mott 2 U of M program; I am currently available on the Mott campus Mondays thru Friday from 9 – 4 in the Mott Memorial Building Room 1002.Go Blue! And Go Bears!

Welcome veterans and service members- Thank you for your service!
My name is Sarah Mellon, and I am originally from Pittsford, Michigan. I received a B.A. in Psychology from Siena Heights University in 2006, a M.Ed. in Higher Education with a concentration in Student Affairs Administration from the University of Toledo in 2010, and I will begin working on a M.A. in Rehabilitation Counseling at Michigan State University in fall 2012. I have worked in higher education/admissions for almost three years.
I love every opportunity to support the arts and community events.
As reflected by the missions of UM-Flint, the focus is truly on service, interaction, and student growth through educational experiences, and that is something I greatly admire about this university.

My name is Julie Westenfeld and I am proud to be an alumnus of the University of Michigan-Flint. I came to UM-Flint as transfer student and in 2003 I proudly earned my Bachelors of Art in History. I loved my time here as undergraduate, so much so that after being a stay-at-home mom for a number of years, I looked forward to coming back to work for the university. My best piece of advice for students entering into the university family is to take advantage of all that is available to you. You already know you are getting a top quality education, so join a student organization, be a part of our vibrant Greek Life, or participate in Student Government. Let your voice be heard. Also, make sure you take time to meet your professors. Visit them during office hours and don’t be afraid to ask for help. They are here for you! Participate in Campus Activities Board (CAB). Enjoy the free food and awesome entertainment they provide. Lastly, get involved in your community. Whether you volunteer here, in Flint or in your home town, reach out and make a difference in your neighborhood. Go BLUE!
