Our “Global Campus Legends” series celebrates the 30th anniversary of WSU Global Campus by putting a spotlight on the unique experiences and journeys of Global Campus students throughout the years. Global Campus Legends features students who graduated from Global Campus since it was founded as WSU Extended Degree Programs in 1992.  

“My journey to WSU Global Campus started when my daughter Christina Turner attended WSU and graduated in 2012. As parents, we loved the experience she had as a student, as well as our experience as parents coming to WSU and Pullman. This helped me decide to honor a promise I made to my mother many years ago to someday complete my education by obtaining my BA degree. It became my plan to finish my degree before I retired from Boeing.

As a result, I began checking into WSU’s offered courses and online options. In doing my research, I found what they had fit my needs and interests. So I checked with the Learning Together Program for college education offered by Boeing, requested to attend WSU, and hoped to be accepted.

After I learned I was accepted at WSU, I enrolled at both the WSU Global online program and for the Boeing LTP and was accepted. I got started in the fall of 2015 and the rest is history! The WSU Global Campus online program option was perfect, as it allowed me to balance my work, life, and school needs. I’m proud of myself for keeping my promise to my mom after all of these years and not feeling I was too old to go back to school. As a result, I became a 2nd generation WSU grad, graduated Cum Laude, and will be using this degree and coursework to enhance and further my professional and personal leadership skills and abilities.”
