Get to Know Grant:

Why WSU:

My parents actually met right here at WSU Pullman, in Stephenson North! So I grew up always expecting to be a Coug and hearing how close-knit the Coug family is. I also chose WSU because of the amazing Environmental Science program and our phenomenal faculty here!

Why should a prospective student choose a CAHNRS major?

CAHNRS majors in my personal opinion are some of the most vital areas of study for our modern world. Every aspect of being a CAHNRS Coug means you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the planet we call home.

Favorite Professor at WSU:

Dr. Whitman! She is a phenomenal and passionate professor and I loved the classes that I got to take with her due to the insightful discussions and impactful, real world applications of the content we were learning..
