Student Spotlight

Connie Archuleta - Health Science Graduate, 2022 GRIT Award Recipient
Enrolling at Western was the best decision I have ever made. I entered as a non-traditional student after having a pretty severe accident. I was able to access the Wellness center for additional help with some of the lasting injuries that I sustained, and the difficulties that came along with it. I would have never accomplished the things that I did, had it not been for the amazing staff, faculty, Peer Tutor Center, and the ANTS Club. They all helped me with my goals and ultimately I got a job that I have wanted for more than 10 years. I found myself feeling so accomplished in achieving being on the dean's list, being selected for Western's Grit award, and ultimately graduating with my degree. Western gave me an extra drive and determination that I hadn't received anywhere else in my life, and the best college experience that I could have ever expected.
