With each entry of Get to Know Western, The Western Front will interview students and staff for a new insight on campus life. This week, we interviewed freshman Samara Almonte pre-minor in environmental studies and social justice.

Q: Why did you pick Western?

A: It was actually not my first option, I wanted to out of state. I am glad I picked it, it has a really good environmental program that was definitely something that attracted me and I like Bellingham.

Q: What is your favorite thing about Western?

A: I like the size definitely I think it’s big enough to where I feel like I am meeting people but still small enough that I can get around easily and I like the community sense of it.

Q: What has been your favorite class so far?

A: Latin American history with Ricardo Lopez. It is really great to see teachers of color on campus and he really cares about his class and his students. I felt supported as a minority here.

Q: What do you like to do around Bellingham?

A: I like the idea of a downtown, so it feels like it’s urban but at the same time it’s small enough on campus that you can get around easily. Theres still stuff to do but chill.
