WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 music. 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:08.000 I chose to come to Western because of the small class sizes, the beautiful campus 00:00:08.000 --> 00:00:12.000 and they were one of the few university that offered a forensic chemistry program as a major. 00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:20.000 music. 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:25.000 Currently for my chemistry major I am taking a forensic photography class that is taught by Dr. Poston. 00:00:25.000 --> 00:00:33.000 And today in class we actually learned how to use photoshop and take a picture of a fingerprint and put in photoshop to lighten it and darken it 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:37.000 We also went outside to take pictures of an outdoor crimes scene. 00:00:37.000 --> 00:00:42.000 Which we were able to put in a relative location of the crime scene, even when taking pictures across the street. 00:00:42.000 --> 00:00:46.000 We were also taught about these pictures could be possibly be used in a court case. 00:00:46.000 --> 00:00:52.000 The best thing about the WOU faculty is that because we have small class sizes, they know you on a first name basis. 00:00:52.000 --> 00:00:56.000 Another activity that I enjoy at Western is the intramural program. 00:00:56.000 --> 00:00:60.000 I have played soccer and softball but currently I am doing volleyball. 00:01:00.000 --> 00:01:07.000 My team is awesome, we've been friends for the past four years and just getting out on the court with them is definitely a great stress reliever. 00:01:07.000 --> 00:01:12.000 Some of my friends have asked what am I going to do with a forensic chemistry degree after I graduate and for me, 00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:19.000 that answer is really easy, ever since I was little I've always wanted to solve the mystery of who committed the crime, 00:01:19.000 --> 00:01:24.000 and hopefully in the near future I will end up with a job at a state or federal crime lab. 00:01:24.000 --> 00:01:28.000 I would recommend Western to other students because of our new Science building. 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:33.000 I think the DeVolder Family Science Center is a fantastic facility 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:36.000 It's state of the art and it's a great place for Chemistry majors. 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:38.000 Western Oregon University is the right place for me. 00:01:38.000 --> 00:01:46.000 music.
