I think that UWT students are representative of the communities that we live in and that we serve in. Our students come from all backgrounds and lifestyles, any identity that you can think of we have represented in our classrooms, which as a student who studied law and policy who wants to make a difference in the world, that's highly important to be learning from people who have different backgrounds and experiences and ideas. That's what I really value about my classmates here at UWT.
It's very easy to join a club on campus. We have other fun clubs on campus, ones that do a lot of great work in the community, volunteer hours and make sure they're uplifting the Tacoma Community in general.
everyone here at UWT is trained to be student focused. So you can ask anyone on campus about a resource ,who they need to talk to, where advising is, where the Career Center is, where the Teaching and Learning Center is. And we're all trained to help you find that resource or know who to talk to. UWT is a regional leader in the South Sound. And we have connections through our tri-campus relationship with the Seattle Bothell campuses, but also done in Olympia with a state legislature and up and down the iI-5 corridor. So no matter where you want to fit in, in the community, no matter where you're called to serve in the community, UWT can help facilitate those relationships and those partnerships.
One of my main reasons of joining UW Tacoma was to come into small community where peers can help facilitate each other to become a better version of themselves. No matter what your background is, whether you're a domestic student or you're an international student like myself, I'm all the way from India. You will find someone or a group of peers who are there for you who are there to motivate you.
