Get to Know Layne:

Favorite Class at WSU:

One of my favorite classes is Historic Costume, but I couldn’t choose any of my professors as a favorite. They have all been helpful and really made me feel welcome and like a part of the CAHNRS family.

Why WSU:

I chose WSU because of the fashion design program and the friendly atmosphere I felt even while touring as a prospective student. I was also influenced by a CAHNRS ambassador at the time who took me out for coffee and became a good friend of mine.

Why should a prospective student choose a CAHNRS Major?

CAHNRS majors are hands on and interactive. All of the majors are parts of the building blocks of society from the food you eat to the clothes on your back. Each is unique and works together to create and build the world around us.
