Why I chose Western.

I chose Western because as soon as I stepped on campus I knew it was home. When I first came to campus I was not even here for me, I was driving a friend to look at the school because he knew he was going to come here. But as soon as I got here it just felt right, so I applied and here I am.

What I like most about Bellingham.

The location is right in between two major cities, so there is always to option to go to either. But, I can also chill in the trees and have some peace.

What I like most about Western.

I love all of the opportunities Western has to offer. When I came in I was a little worried as a pre-med student because there is no specific pre-med major, but my advisors quickly helped me figure out the right path and linked me up with great on-campus clubs as well as summer internships.
