Hello Cougs! While working on my Bachelor’s, I was able to take many Women’s Studies courses. In those courses we explored identities both like and unlike our own. It ended up shaping what I studied in grad school and my work as a Virtual Mentor today. While VMing today, I find students searching for community and a brave-safe space to learn about identities. Thankfully, WSU has a resource center that provides just that!
I get it. Really, I do.
There is an exam to study for in one class, a huge paper due soon in another, endless pages to read and lectures to watch in yet another. The kids need to get to soccer, ballet, and gym classes on time several days this week. The boss has asked for more hours covered because of short staffing. The mirror says “hey, we’re long overdue for a haircut, here”, the animals are all up for a yearly vet visit, and the significant other thinks he or she is invisible.
My name is Anna Chesnokova and I have been a Virtual Mentor at WSU Global for more than five years. Previously, I was a senator at WSU Global student government while I was getting my BA in Business Administration: Management and Operations (Magna cum laude).
WSU Global Campus (formerly Distance Degree Programs) has changed and evolved since my time as an online student. What hasn’t changed, however, is the complexity students face in their day-to-day scheduling and the demands life places on them.
Hello Cougs,I recently returned from a cruise in the Caribbean where my fiancé and I spent time playing in the surf, splashing in the pools, and catching some delightful naps in the light breeze. We visited Labadee, Haiti and Falmouth, Jamaica. It was a wonderful experience and I don’t mind saying my favorite part was swimming with dolphins.
