Why did you choose UWB? The small campus.

What do you like about UWB? The brand new technology and facilities. It's so clean and nice!

What has been the best class you've taken? "Interdisciplinary Writing" with Professor Tasha Buttler. She is the reason this class was so amazing. Wonderful professor!!

What is your favorite thing to do at UWB? Hide out on the second floor in the library on the comfy chairs where it is silent. And no one can find me.

How are you involved on the campus? I am a student worker and am a member of the UW cycle team.

What advice would you give a high school student about going to college? Stacking up your classes on just a couple days a week in order to have a couple days with no class is NOT a good idea. The days you do have class become sooooo long, it is better to have just a few hours of class every day in my opinion.
