If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.

I chose WASHU because every interaction I had with the team from my phone interview was positive, honest, and straightforward. I felt that I could be the same with them and was welcomed with open arms and authenticity. When I came for my visit, I knew from start to finish that this would be a good fit that challenged me and validated me as a professional. I can’t wait to learn so much from the Res Life team at WASHU and be a part of the family here. The students were so open with me and showed how passionate they were about what they were doing at WASHU. I love working with students and being able to be a part of their journey. It’s rewarding and fulfilling work and being able to do it at WASHU is a huge plus for me!
