Photo of Milkah Campbell"I am a recent graduate of Central Washington University. I majored in Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Science (IDS) and double minored in Social Science and Psychology. Currently, I work in the social services field as a Housing Navigator for the homeless.
When I first began my journey at CWU, I was nervous, but the professors and the advisors eased all of my concerns. The IDS program was excellent, and the class selection and curriculum were tremendous. Working full-time and going to college full-time was challenging, but the experience was top-notch. I feel that CWU’s IDS program has profoundly impacted my knowledge of Social Science and has informed me on many of today’s issues that concern us all, which has significantly impacted my career."
