Our Coug Experiences
We met during sorority recruitment. She was my ‘Rush Crush.’ We just hit it off really well. I was sad when she didn’t come back to my sorority, but then I walked into my math class on the first day of school and there was Chelsey! It was fate!

The WSU African American Student Center is my hangout. It’s like a safe haven. And the CUB is my go-to place to connect with people and study. Like, during finals week, I would be here every single day, sometimes until 3 AM.
I transferred to WSU Pullman and while I was walking through the CUB and I saw the Hong Kong Student Association. They were giving out free prizes, so I walked up to the table. Not only did I win a prize, I ended up talking to the students and later joining the club. I’ve gotten really close friends that I met through the association. When we table at the CUB, not only is it a fun way to promote HKSA, but I continue to meet more and more people.
I have found an interest in recreation, especially with intramurals. I love the environment, I love the people I work with and I love my supervisors.
I got involved in STAGE during my freshman year. It’s a really homey environment, and it makes me feel like I get to keep doing what I love to do while I’m figuring out my career.
Maybe I’m not as involved in extra curriculars, but because I work on campus, I’m still involved. It’s a weird relationship there. I’m there for events, when the events are going on. I still have fun even though I’m working.
I would have never been involved in student government (ASWSUTC) or on my campus if it were not for students reaching out to me and giving me opportunities to get involved.
The university has an opportunity to send a message, not only to students with disabilities, but all students, that they matter.
I’ve learned that the top dogs on campus aren’t the only ones with a voice. By being myself and sticking to my values, my personality and leadership development has skyrocketed into a place of true service and happiness.
