WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 Music 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:11.000 I decided to attend Western because I wanted to major in Communication Studies at a school with a strong academic standing. 00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:16.000 Music 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:19.000 Music 00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:25.000 This term I'm taking two communication classes: Conflict Management and Contemporary Issues in Media. 00:00:25.000 --> 00:00:30.000 I'm also taking a political science course as part of a sequence for my major. 00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:34.000 One thing I really like about WOU is the classroom size. 00:00:34.000 --> 00:00:42.000 Classroom sizes are great to get to know your teachers on a personal level. It makes learning more fun when you feel like the teacher is talking to you in the room. 00:00:42.000 --> 00:00:48.000 I'm also a student athlete here at Western. I play shooting guard on the men's Basketball team. 00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:54.000 And the privilege of being a guard in general on the basketball team is you are a leader. 00:00:54.000 --> 00:00:61.000 You want to translate what you learn from the classroom to the floor and you want to translate from the floor to the classroom. 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:04.000 Announcer: Alexander getting another three. He hits it. 00:01:04.000 --> 00:01:10.000 I am very pleased with my decision in attending Western. I've had a terrific basketball career. 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:21.000 And making it to the national tournament this year. Most importantly, I'm going to be getting my degree in Communication Studies thus taking me into my career. 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:26.000 ESP analysis, you know that's always been the dream to stay involved with sports through communication. 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:31.000 And doing that as an analysis would be like the dream come true. 00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:36.000 Music
