        My education gave me a foundation for launching in new directions beyond my BA in Social Work. Graduate course work furthered my love of nutrition enabling me to start a private practice in nutrition, www.SimplyHealthLLC.com, working with a varied client base, in person and by phone or Skype.

      • Testimony
        1998-2001, BA

        I was a college hopper. Working, saving money, going to school, repeat. So I attended 3 colleges to get my B.A. WSU was the final one and the one I was at the longest. It finally fit what I wanted and needed in a school. A great all around education, a campus that wasn't so large I couldn't walk it without a bottle of water in case I got lost and friendly people. I suggest WSU to anyone but especially those who want to go to a state school but don't want to deal with the large campus where you are just a number.

        The student experience at WSU is only growing and getting more exciting. Me and my friends studied abroad, landed impressive internships, and worked some pretty exciting jobs in the city. WSU is on the move, and bold administrative leadership and a capable faculty ensure it will continue to play an important role in the State of Kansas and the world.
