  • Jennifer Romadka is one of our 2020 graduates. She graduated with a degree in Public Policy and Administration.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When asked about her experience as an Honors Program student, she said, "My experience in honors has pushed me academically, personally, and professionally in all the ways I wasn’t expecting it to. When I first started college, it was great to have a community already laid out for me through living in the Honors hall, to taking the same classes as everyone. It really helped my transition coming into WOU, and I don’t think I would have branched out and continued trying new things throughout my whole college experience without the Honors Program." ⁠⠀

  • Jose Raul Magana Mendoza is one of our 2020 graduates. He graduated with a degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When asked about his experience as a first-generation student, he said, "It has definitely helped motivate me to keep going and earn my degree, even when I felt like giving up due to a number of circumstances. I was not the best student coming out of high school and didn’t think I had a future in higher education, but I’m grateful I eventually made the move to go to college and finish, and hopefully make my family proud along the way." ⁠⠀

  • Danel Camacho is one of our 2020 graduates. She graduated with a degree in Community Health Education.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When asked why she chose WOU, she said, "I chose WOU primarily because of its cross country and track programs, since I had competed in community college and realized I wanted to finish out my remaining two years of collegiate athletic eligibility. Going to WOU gave me an opportunity to compete at a NCAA Division II running program, and I looked forward to training at a higher caliber level. Academically, I was drawn to WOU because of its small class sizes, because I believed that I would thrive better as a student when I could be more than a number in a classroom and connect better with my professors. I also liked that they offered a B.S. in Community Health Education and a minor in Human Biology. Financially, WOU was also a more affordable option as a public school and offered the WUE tuition reduction." ⁠⠀

  • Kaela Wehrman is one of our 2020 graduates. She graduated with a degree in Secondary Education Language Arts.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When asked why she chose WOU, she said, "I chose WOU because from the first moment I stepped on campus to tour, I could feel the sense of a tight knit community. The feel of the campus was a really important factor for me, too; it was the perfect size, in my opinion. The campus was big enough to offer opportunities and a place for anyone, but small enough that I didn’t feel like I would be lost in the crowd. I didn’t want to move too far from home for school, so having an option near home that I felt welcomed at was exactly what WOU provided for me." ⁠⠀

  • Taylor Dowler  is one of our 2020 graduates. She graduated with a degree in Communication Studies.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When asked why she chose WOU, she said, "I actually chose to enroll at WOU for a few different reasons. First and foremost, I chose WOU because it was less than a half hour away from my moms, and I was tired of living several hours from her. The second reason is because WOU had a Model United Nations Team that I was quite interested in joining. The final reason is because I actually got married on this campus at Gentle House a year prior to enrolling, and I thought it would be nice to see my wedding venue every day." ⁠⠀

  • Leah Coyle is one of our 2020 graduates. She graduated with a degree in Communication Studies.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When asked what she loved most about her major, she said, "I originally came to WOU to become a high school English teacher, but I fell in love with our communication department fall term of my first year. People always ask, 'What can you do studying communications?' The truth is that you can do anything, and I love the idea of being able to choose from many different career paths. I wanted a degree I could always use and find helpful at any point in my life, and I found that. I personally favor interpersonal and organizational communication, because I know I can use those skills in both my personal and professional lifestyles." ⁠⠀
