WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 music 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:06.000 So I chose to come to Western Oregon University 00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:10.000 because I knew I wanted to get better attention and more focus from my professors 00:00:10.000 --> 00:00:15.000 and it's a lot easier to get more attention when you have smaller class sizes here at a smaller university 00:00:15.000 --> 00:00:16.000 rather than a bigger university. 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:24.000 music 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:27.000 So I became a double major in Spanish and Criminal Justice 00:00:27.000 --> 00:00:31.000 because I saw the utility in becoming bilingual 00:00:31.000 --> 00:00:33.000 because it's very important in this culture right now. 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:36.000 And I think I wanted to just expand my horizons a little bit. 00:00:36.000 --> 00:00:42.000 What I like about my Spanish linguistics class is that we learn about sentence structure, which is very important to learning how to speak. 00:00:42.000 --> 00:00:45.000 And it's also quite a bit of a challenge and I really love a challenge. 00:00:45.000 --> 00:00:50.000 The best thing about the WOU faculty is that they care a lot about your learning. 00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:52.000 They help you every step of the way. 00:00:52.000 --> 00:00:59.000 And especially with Spanish they help me even before I ask for help they're already offering help. 00:00:59.000 --> 00:00:61.000 So what I like to do when I'm not studying is hang out with my friends. 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:05.000 And what's really nice about this campus here is you can make a lot of friends in a lot of your classes 00:01:05.000 --> 00:01:08.000 and you guys can just hang out and have a good time. 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:14.000 My career goals are to go to law school after I graduate from Western with my double major in Criminal Justice and Spanish. 00:01:14.000 --> 00:01:18.000 I am hoping to work with a law firm after I graduate from law school 00:01:18.000 --> 00:01:24.000 to help disenfranchised people in the criminal justice system which typically is a lot of native Spanish-speakers. 00:01:24.000 --> 00:01:27.000 I would absolutely recommend Western to other students 00:01:27.000 --> 00:01:30.000 because it is such a tight-knit community around here. 00:01:30.000 --> 00:01:36.000 You gain a lot of valuable friendships and relationships with other classmates and also with professors. 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:40.000 And you learn a lot from your professors inside and outside the classroom here. 00:01:40.000 --> 00:01:46.000 La universidad de Western Oregon University es exactamente lo que estaba buscando. 00:01:46.000 --> 00:01:51.000 music
