"My education is an asset that has and will continue to benefit me in my career. I have also found real value in the personal relationships that I made as a student and continue to make with professors, students,and alumni. At Western, you don't just get lost in the crowd. There are many opportunities to get involved and shape your college and alumni experience. I am excited to think about the possibility of one of my children attending Western Carolina University."
