Wolves talk about their time at WOU

Alissa McAlpine 17′, ’18

Outstanding Graduate Student

“There are countless opportunities that I’ve had in my life because I went to a small school like Western. There are people looking out for you every step of the way.”

Sara Madden ’18

Smith winner

“For me, Western is very welcoming. It’s nice to come to campus; it’s very friendly. Plus, all the opportunities we have here, clubs, intramurals. Everywhere you look, there’s something.”

Carter Craig ’18

Delmer Dewey Award winner

I encourage students not to think of college like a transaction. It’s not about buying a product you can use. Earning a degree is a more holistic experience. I learned lifelong lessons and gained lifelong friends (at WOU).
