How did WES prepare you for your future?

WES provided me with a really well rounded education— I always felt challenged and excited by what we were learning, both in the classroom and out in the world during the incredible global experiences that WES provided us. At WES, I learned how to think critically and take ownership of my learning. I also learned about the value of community and the role that we can all play in building communities that we are proud to be a part of.
