Getting to Know You: Tiger Wong


Tiger Wong – Athletic Training

Year in school: 5th year graduate student

Hometown: Hong Kong

Why are you studying this? What do you hope to do with it after your graduation?

I found my passion in athletic training when I first visited WSU. I enjoy being in the competitive environment and helping athletes to achieve their goals, while sharing the same enthusiasm and work ethic. I hope to work in the professional football or basketball setting to further practice my skills and grow as a young professional.

Why did you choose WSU?

I really loved the warm and welcoming atmosphere that Pullman offers. The people in town are very kind as well. I love the Athletic Training program because it offers a diverse clinical experience and other learning experiences that other programs cannot offer. Working with Pac-12 athletes as a student is a very unique experience that not many can do!

What’s been your favorite part of the WSU experience thus far?

Working the football game on the sideline as well as College Game Day!

What’s been the biggest challenge so far?

Managing time spent between doing school related work and doing other activities that keep my mind clear.

As a college, we’re starting to focus more on our people being agents of change. What makes you an agent of change?

I think my effort to put attention to detail and working with a sense of urgency are what helps me stand out among others. I strive to exceed expectations and always bring tremendous work ethic.
