Favorite WSU experience
During orientation was the first time I realized the whole “Go Cougs” thing, that it’s a family and a small-town feeling. The other time I realized it was traveling. We’d go to California, Arizona, all these random places and hear “Go Cougs!” in the airport when you’re walking around with the t-shirt on. That’s when I realized it was a special place and a special family to be a part of, with a sense of community.
I want to play baseball as long as I can. I don’t really know what’s going on with the draft this year. It changes daily but the idea is to play professional baseball. As for computer science, if I do end up going into that career, I’ve always been interested in Microsoft and Boeing in the Seattle area since I grew up near those companies.
