Central Washington University was a great stepping stone to finding out who I really was. I love the small town atmosphere and family togetherness. I was a gym rat and I played basketball any and every second I was not in class or studying. The School administration office and staff members where always so helpful. My professors I absolutely adored. I went on to get my Bachelor of Science in Biology. Great team of advisors and professors to help you succeed.
Central Washington University is a good school, but some things can be changed. I'm sure it’s like that at every college. Racism may not be the biggest issue but there is discrimination in the school and city. I feel there should be more scholarships and grants for students in the Fashion department. We didn’t get as much support from the school or donors as much as I think we should. We do way more than an average person may think. The ATM program goes in depth about apparel, the culture behind certain looks and learning about the business side of it. Everyone assumes its easy when it takes hard work to master some of this knowledge. We take business and selling classes for this major outside of just fashion courses. We host a Fashion show every year, but I don't know anyone that received a scholarship particularly for fashion design, styling or anything in the fashion field.
