Today, veterans from all branches of the military enrich our student body and bring much-valued diversity and life experience to campus.

    I became interested in the American Food Studies: Farm-to-Table Cooking program after spending a year volunteering on Shambala farms located in Camano Island, WA. As a result of this experience, I intend to support local farmers and the local economy in which I live, both personally and professionally, by using only fresh farm ingredients.
