Students win top honors

WSU students win prestigious honors for their academic achievements on a regular basis:

• Seniors Raven Conyers and Luis Cortez and sophomore Keesha Matz recently won national awards for presentations about their scientific research at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students.

• Mechanical engineering students Mitchell Scott, Ryan Pitzer and Victor Charoonsophonsak were among 291 students nationwide recently selected to receive University

Innovation Fellowships. The trio will use the fellowships to carry out a yearlong project to encourage student entrepreneurship at WSU.

• “The 8 Bit,” a WSU student-produced television show focused on video games, recently won the top national award for “Best Video General Entertainment Program” from College Broadcasters Incorporated. The show is one of several programs produced by student-run Cable 8 Productions, part of the Murrow College of Communication.

Access to quality education has never been easier

With campuses located on both sides of the Cascades and a variety of degrees available online, access to a degree at one of the state’s two research universities has never been easier. The flagship campus in Pullman offers a classic collegetown experience that attracted more than 20,000 students this fall.

The urban campuses include WSU Spokane, focused on the health sciences; WSU Tri-Cities, whose course offerings focus on the STEM disciplines; and WSU Vancouver, offering 22 undergraduate programs in fields ranging from mechanical engineering to environmental science. WSU North Puget Sound at Everett offers five high-demand bachelor’s degrees on the Everett Community College campus. The Global Campus, which serves students worldwide, offers nine bachelor’s degrees in a convenient, online environment.
