"I struck up a conversation recently with a tall, young man wearing a Central Washington University sweatshirt, called Central Washington State College when I graduated there in 1966. I called out, “Go Wildcats!” to him to break the ice and find out if we were both Central alums.

Daniel Lee Zavala graduated from CWU in the winter of 2012 with a BS in clinical physiology, and two minors. His minor in Spanish was earned during a three-month independent study in Guadalajara.
