San Diego, CA
Political Science and History
Why I chose Western.
I wanted to challenge myself to grow as a person by subjecting myself to a different environment, and started looking at colleges in Washington. When I toured Western, I fell in love with the campus, and knew I had to come here.
My advice for incoming or prospective students.
Don't be afraid to put yourself out there! College is a perfect time to try new things and meet new people, you will learn a lot about yourself yourself through your new experiences.
Why I chose my major.
I knew I wanted to major in political science after the first few classes I took, but I ended up double majoring almost by accident. I loved Western's history classes, and took them every chance I could, but never planned to major in or do anything with history. I ended up taking so many history classes that I almost finished half the major before the end of my second year. At that point I figured, why not just double major?
A little known fact about Western that you should know.
The smoothies that are sold at the rec center are amazing, especially on a sunny day. If you ever need motivation to get to the gym, let those smoothies be your inspiration.
What I like most about Western.
Western is an absolutely gorgeous campus, and the people here are amazing. When I first came to western, I was nervous about making friends, as I was an out of state student that didn't know anyone. However everyone I met was super welcoming and friendly, and coming to western has allowed me to meet some of my closest friends.
