Words of Wisdom

Don’t miss your deadlines – but don’t miss out on life too. College will be over before you know it.

How Did Scholarships Help You at WSU

Receiving the Susan Windgrow Scholarship was such a blessing for me, because it allowed me to focus on my school work, rather than me stressing out over getting a job during the semester. Each summer I work as much as I can to minimize the loans I may have to take out each semester, and with this scholarship, I was able to allow myself some cushion with my finances this year which was great. Lastly, the scholarship was a constant reminder of my hard work as a Native American woman and it further compelled me to do more Indigenous advocacy work.

Why You Are Proud to Be a WSU Grad

I have seen WSU change in the 5 years I have attended school here. With all institutions, there is always work to be done, but I am proud to see the steps WSU has made to be more inclusive to the Native students and the surrounding Dakota community.

How did WSU Help You Achieve Your Goals

By having caring faculty that were always willing to listen to me and come up with solutions or plans to my problems. I connected with so many great human beings that teach at WSU and I owe so much of my success to them.
