Hannah has also attended Loyola University in Chicago but decided that Western is where the heart is. "You know there's nowhere like Western. You can learn anything you want, be anyone you want and there's nothing that this school can't provide you."

Contributions to WWU:
Bailey is one that is able to talk to anyone about anything and he does this in his involvement at WWU. Starting and initiating WWU PPC or Western Washington Ping Pong Club Bailey Kuntz has used his potential to cohesively come together with students, make sure everyone's voice is heard, and has influenced most to all that he comes into contact with. Though the club is no longer going on he hopes to revamp it; after focusing on school he feels as though it is necessary to reboot the club. Bailey is avid in peace love and understanding as he puts it and feels as though the one rule that people should abide by is simply the golden one, love yourself as you love your neighbor.
WWU's Fairhaven College and Associated Students run the campus Outback Farm as a part of applying Outdoor Experiential Learning and sustainability. This invaluable program contributes vastly to Western's Campus as well as involved students' experience working on a farm. Programs on Outback Farm include organic farming, habitat restoration, sustainable land use practices and more.
Unfortunately, this Summer Quarter, Outback Farm was subject to a robbery in which hundreds of dollars worth of tools were taken from one of its sheds. This program relies heavily on a volunteer, student-run basis and an act of theft like this has a heavy impact on them during their busiest season.
WeAreWWU feels that the Outback Farm contributes positively to Western and are proud to announce that we have decided to respond to this robbery by awarding them the 2017 Campus Community Reserve Award! This should help to replace what was stolen from them and let Outback Farm know how much they are appreciated and valued by our community.
