Both of my parents attended WSU as well as my older brother. I was introduced to what it means to be a Coug at a very young age. Making occasional trips to Pullman throughout my childhood made exposed me to all that WSU has to offer. There is truly a family atmosphere to becoming a Coug and that makes Pullman a special place to go to school. After researching the Sport Science program, I knew it was a perfect fit for my future career goals. This in combination with my family history led me to choosing to pursue an education at WSU.


The best advice I can give to incoming students is to really focus on time management. For most students, going away to college comes with a newfound independence. There is nearly always something to be doing other than school work. It’s important to start off strong academically so you don’t have to make up for your “freshman GPA”. The next most important thing I would stress to new students is to GET INVOLVED. Whether it is with a club on campus, intramural sports, or a fraternity/sorority, getting involved on campus will not only enrich your academic experience but it helps tremendously in making Pullman feel like a home away from home.
