UW Tacoma in one world, adaptable. UW Tacoma, has the same size and outline as a community college and I say this because I transfered during my junior year. Coming from a small, open, commuter based community college I was scared of the thought of a new college life. However, by coming to UWT I was able to adapt, felt comfortable, and somewhat like home even though unlike a traditional campus we do not have dorms. UW Tacoma unlike our large sister campus, has the capacity to be able to reach out to all 4300 students and getting them activity involved, wether it's within the school or outside the community. UWT provides great student leader opportunities open to all students, undergrad or graduate. One particular program that I am proud to be apart of and created so many great opportunities and memories for myself is joining our Student Activities Board. The Student Activities Board is a group of students who are motivated and driven to provide ways to get students actively involved, providing fun and even education events on campus to benefit the students, faculty, staff, and the Tacoma community. Since I've joined this program I was given opportunities to see myself grow as a student leader and a leader within my community. Being able to reach out to students and see a brighter future for myself and others, by utilizing all the resources this university provides. Staff members here most importantly are such an amazing resource, and since working very closely with them; they are specifically here to help students. That is why whenever I meet prospective students, I always tell them to get involved, learn about the opportunities and resources your school provides, and most importantly make the most out of your college experience.
