How did you discover Western?

Growing up in Montrose CO, Western was highly talked about through high school as a close, affordable and respectable school.

What are some of the highlights of your time at Western?

The people I have met and the memories I have made from going to I-bar, eating at the Rare Air Cafe and skiing in Crested Butte are irreplaceable.  Never have I experienced such close-knit friends and caring community.

What most excites you about your major?

With my major I can apply to be on a trail crew with the Forest Service full-time instead of seasonally, and I’m excited to get out into the field and take the field techniques I have learned here with me into my career.

What is your favorite thing about the Gunnison Valley?

My favorite thing in the valley is the fact that no matter where I am, I feel safe. I can ride my bike, walk or skate anywhere at any time and feel safe.  That is something that doesn’t occur everywhere and I really appreciate it.
