I Found My Niche at Northwestern State University
Student Name: TJ Woodard
School: Northwestern State University
Major: Biology Pre-Medicine
Hey Y’all!! My name is TJ Woodard and I am a sophomore Biology Pre-Medicine Major at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, LA. Even prior to my admission, I knew that Northwestern State was the place for me due to their emphasis on a family-like environment on campus. This family environment is highlighted throughout all the facets of involvement my university has to offer.
During my first year here at Northwestern State, I have had the honor of being chosen as a 2022 Freshman Connector (Orientation Leader), Vice-President of our African American Caucus, SGA Senator, Public Relations Chair of Alpha Lambda Delta First Year Honor Society, and Logistics Committee Member of Helping Hands all while maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.9. Since Northwestern has so many ways to be involved, I have been able to give back to the university that has already given me so much in such a short amount of time.
Although Natchitoches might be a small town that may seem like it is in the middle of nowhere, getting involved in the plethora of events and organizations NSU has to offer makes it feel like you are in a huge town! Ther’s always something to do or get involved in on campus. I can say without a doubt that attending Northwestern State University has been the best decision I have made in my life! And as always, Fork Em Demons😈🧡💜🤘🏾
