An experience or class at Western that made me go "Wow!"

In my first quarter at Western, I took a history class that took an in-depth look at higher education in the US. It was through this class that I learned the path to my goals is different than everyone else, and rather than focusing only on school I should focus on what I want to achieve in life the most.

What I like most about Western

I love all the outdoor activities that are available around Western! We have the Lakewood Boathouse where you can go to rent kayaks for a few dollars and take it right out on Lake Whatcom. It's super easy to get off campus and go for a hike close-by.

Why I chose my major

I chose theatre as my major because in high school I discovered my passion for the technical side of it. I've been doing it for about 4 years so far, and I've enjoyed every minute. When I graduate I actually don't plan to get a job in theatre, but rather become a firefighter and then hopefully a paramedic soon after.
