What makes working at UW Bothell rewarding?
Working at a small, but growing university like UW Bothell allows me to work with an increasingly diverse population of students who all have something to contribute to the campus culture. I love being able to visit both high schools and community colleges to talk with students about the various educational opportunities we offer and love it when students I helped swing by my office to say hi!
What is the best advice you can give a new student?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions and occasionally fall flat on your face. One of my best learning experiences in college was after I made a complete fool of myself my freshman year in front of about 30 people. Even though I wanted nothing more than to hide for the rest of my life, I learned so much about who I am and what my values are. Looking back on it, I think that falling on my face (which happened multiple times during my undergraduate experience) always taught me things that I wouldn’t have otherwise learned.
What do you consider the main attraction at UW Bothell?
Have you been to the campus? It’s beautiful! Even when the day is overcast or rainy, there is a great energy here from the students, faculty, and staff that makes you want to take everything in stride.
