University of Washington, Tacoma '15, Communication
My favorite thing about college: The small, urban setting of the campus led to many opportunities to engage in the community. Over the years, I saw how students and faculty collaborated with other Tacoma institutions to cultivate a space to learn outside of the classroom. I gave presentations to the city council, interviewed countless community members for the student newspaper and submitted films to local film festivals, to name a few. I feel as though I came away with not only a degree but also practical experience to pull from even to this day.
