PNW student Courtney Blackwell

I chose PNW because of the challenging academics. It’s also close to home, the environment is welcoming, and they’re part of NCAA Division II Athletics.

I knew I wanted the chance to write even more, learn to do so in many different ways, and make a positive difference in the world with my writing overall
