Get to Know Vanessa:


Why WSU?

I chose WSU because it is where God wanted me to be at the moment. It also offered a major I wanted to study and it was located in a small town, I thought it would be easier to make friends in a small town haha! Turns out, I was more than blessed because the community here is more than amazing.

Favorite Spot on Campus:

The CUB for sure!

Advice for Underclassmen:

Try and fail, and then try again. The ability to master something is only available to those who try. Don’t put people in a box, be always open-minded, and try to live each day purposefully.

One Thing You Couldn’t Live Without:

Good Friends!
