Favorite WSU experience
One of the most fulfilling components of being at WSU was being a member of the WSU Honors College. It was thrilling to be in classes where the students and faculty were constantly engaged and as excited about learning as I am. My favorite experience was presenting and listening to research at the Western Regional Honors Conference in Riverside, California. It was a joy to be able to listen and learn about current research from across the Western United States.
I will be attending Indiana University Bloomington for my master’s in music in oboe performance, and will eventually pursue a doctorate in music history. I plan on becoming an oboe and honors professor and play in a professional symphony orchestra.
