Favorite WSU experience
The people. The family aspect of everything really blew me out of the water. Everyone is so kind here, it’s a cool town built around the college so everyone is so close-knit, and that has been my favorite thing about WSU, the community and the people. The Pullman community has been really influential in my personal development, with all the people I’ve been able to meet and volunteer with. My roommates turned out to be my best friends, and we would take camping trips to Elk River Falls and go skiing and sledding at the golf course at night.
I will be attending the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine in the fall to become a doctor. I want to work in rural communities, and their mission and vision is exactly what I wanted to do in medicine. The people are awesome. I’ve been able to meet them and it was an easy choice for me. I secured the Air Force Health Professions Scholarship, which gives me a full ride to medical school in return for eight years of active duty after completing school. So, in about 12 years, I hope to be a physician in underserved rural areas, preferably in Washington.
