What Western Washington University is doing to attract new students

Western Washington University is working to ignite local kids’ interest in STEM careers.

“Our state lags behind in the number of kids with bachelor degrees, in the stem fields, and just generally in higher education.” Paul Cocke, Director of Communications at  WWU explained.

WWU is working to bring students in Whatcom County above those statistics, using their own Environmental Sciences lobby as a sort of museum to attract students of all ages to learn on their turf.

“We have a great place to study geology with active volcanism, we have glaciers here, lots of things.”
