Joyleen

Junior, Health promotion/pre-physical therapy

What are your career plans? 
To work in physical therapy in relation to prosthetics and orthotics.

How have you benefited from the Walla Walla University Fund, which provides scholarships, campus programs, and campus improvements?
Scholarships have helped a lot­—I was able to study in Spain because of scholarships. That experience helped me learn Spanish, and I gained more of a global worldview and made memories I’ll have forever. Without scholarships I don’t know if I’d be here at WWU.


Scott

Graduate student, Social Work

What are your career plans?
To become a therapist.

How have you benefited from the WWU Fund, which provides scholarships, campus programs, and campus improvements?
Scholarships make a difference, and Student Financial Services goes the extra mile to help students get the money needed to register for school. WWU has a beautiful campus and such a nice environment that the university fund supports.

In undergrad, I was president of the Pegasus Club, which is the English department club, and loved how it brought people together from all over campus. I’ve also participated in ASWWU Outdoors trips, like whitewater rafting, trips to hot springs—trips to natural areas that I haven’t done a lot of before. They go above and beyond in the planning, and the trips are very affordable.


Karla

Senior, International Communications—French

What are your career plans?
To complete a master’s degree in economics and to work in commodities trading or fundraising.

How have you benefited from the WWU Fund, which provides scholarships, campus programs, and campus improvements?
Going to college wouldn’t be possible without the scholarships I’ve received. And I really appreciated the lighting in front of the buildings and by the dorms. I took a lot of evening classes one winter quarter, and having that lighting going to and from class made me feel safer.


Gifts to the Walla Walla University Fund provide many wonderful opportunities for students and contribute to a supportive and nurturing environment on campus.

None of this would be possible without your generous donations.

Please help us raise $255,000 for the Walla Walla University Fund by June 30, 2019.
