You are driven by passion. We help you realize your potential.
When I came to PNW for the very first time on a campus visit, I already knew this was going to be my home. I will be the best that I can be because I am a product of PNW.
PNW has created networking opportunities and professional relationships that I am grateful for, with mentors that are wonderful role models.
I met a lot of great people who turned out to be some of my best friends, and to actually run a live television show that airs on Lakeshore PBS is really, really valuable.
