When Susy graduates, she hopes to work with high school students to guide them on how to pursue higher education or work at a college or university. When asked what advice she would give to incoming students, she said, “Take all the pictures, try new things, join many RSO’s as you can, live this moments to max but don’t forget that you are here for an education.” Speaking of RSO’s (Registered Student Organizations), Susy is involved in quite a few of them – MECHA, Ballet Folklórico de WSU, and the Crimson Group. Her favorite spot on-campus is the fourth floor of the CUB, where our Multicultural Student Services are located. You might see her grabbing a bite to eat at Tokyo Seoul, a Sushi and Korean BBQ restaurant located near campus. Susy chose to become a Coug because of how her area of study is set-up and because of the financial aide she received. She became an orientation counselor because she wanted to help students the same way her orientation counselor helped her. Here is a fun fact about Susy: “I once waited 12 hours in the rain for an Eric Nam concert. We saw him when we were waiting in line and I asked him if he could sing my favorite song as a birthday gift. I didn’t think he would but HE DID! And he also sang happy birthday to me.”
We hope you love Susy as much as we do!
