Favorite thing about CWU:

My favorite things about CWU are the students, the faculty and staff across the university who truly care about teaching and mentoring students, and the sense of community among students, faculty, and staff.

Favorite thing to do in Ellensburg:

I love running on the Iron Horse (aka John Wayne) trail, the Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings, the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Ellensburg, the Kittitas County Fair in September, and skiing, boating, camping, hiking, and fishing with my family in the areas around Ellensburg.

Best advice for new students at Central:

Don’t be afraid of mistakes; learn something from every new experience. Talk to your professors. Always challenge yourself to be better and never give up on yourself. Pursue your interests, develop your strengths, and become the person you want to be!
