What I like most about Bellingham

I love Bellingham's farmers markets, the amazing coffee shops, and all of the local hikes there are.

Why I chose Western

I chose Western because of the College of the Environment as well as its location. I love how one side of campus has the arboretum and the other side of campus has a beautiful view of the bay.

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

During fall quarter, I went on a weekend kayaking trip in the San Juan Islands with the outdoor center. It was my first time kayaking in the ocean, I made new friends, and we saw porpoises!
