Michael Dees is a 21-year-old sophomore from Federal Way, Wash. with an interest in marketing.

Q: Why did you pick Western?

A: It was the only school I applied to. [I’d] never seen the campus in my life. I like it, so it worked out somehow.

  Q:  What is your favorite thing about Western?

A: It’s probably the ease of getting to know people. Everyone seems really friendly up here.

Q:  What has your favorite class been so far?

A: History 278, multiculturalism of Canada. Just because Canada has a really racist history and a lot of people don’t know that.

      Q:  What do you like to do around Bellingham?

A : I like to skateboard. That is my main hobby. Besides that, I like cars a lot. I am building a drift car.

     Q:    What is your best piece of advice for students?

A: Don’t be afraid just to talk to people because everyone is new and wants to make friends.

     Q:  What are your goals after you graduate?

A : Try to move back to Seattle, get a good job, adopt a Corgi and that’s all I can really see for the future.

   Q:  How do you feel your experiences have helped you with your education?

A: I’ve come from a rough family and past, so I guess all of that made me a lot more motivated to get to where I am. Growing up that way, the biggest thing is that I don’t want that for when I have kids. I want to give my future family something better than I had.
