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.   

“For me it was always going to be WSU. I like to tell people I’ve been a Coug since birth, even though no one in my family had gone to college.
I didn’t start seriously considering getting a degree until I was in my forties, and WSU Global Campus was a perfect fit! They had a degree program that suited my interests and the online option meant that I could still work full-time. I had a great time in the program and never once felt disconnected from the college experience, even though I was online.
When I finally made it to Pullman one summer, I cried. I was so excited to be in Pullman and so awed by how beautiful the campus is. And it was all because WSU Global Campus made it possible.”
