What It Means to These Students...

Kendra Baker, Sophomore

Major: English & Communications

Minor: Sociology                                                          

“I understand the importance of caring for others and making meaningful connections. I value the connections I have made with the Western and Bellingham communities and hope to maintain these throughout my life. I strive to continue the values my mother has taught me. Good listening and caring for others are essential in all aspects of my life.”


Ray Garcia, Senior

Major: News/Editorial Journalism

Minor: Writing Studies                                                          

“I am most inspired by the human experiences that I encounter as a journalist. Being a student in the journalism department has shown me the power and influence behind another person’s story. It’s an extraordinary feeling when a source trusts me to represent who they are and what matters to them.”
