LAUNCH IN ACTION
We asked a LAUNCH Student Ambassadors questions regarding the Transformational Change Institute (TCI).
Topics ranged from what they hope to contribute to WSU through TCI, why experiential learning opportunities are important for undergraduate students, and why it’s important to building a strong foundation during the first year of college.
The Ambassador we spoke with is senior Microbiology major Rory Nordquist, an excited LAUNCH Ambassador eager to see how TCI can assist in students’ transition from high school to Washington State University.
“Looking back at my time as a freshman, I was very lucky to be in the Greek community as well as having my job as a teaching assistant, which both acted as experiential learning models and high-impact practices for me. These opportunities definitely influenced the next three years as an undergrad.”
“The TCI program would have been beneficial to me in exploring more high-impact practices on campus. I’m beyond happy with what I was placed in but didn’t quite know what all was out there for me as a student. This is why experiential learning opportunities are so important for undergrad students because they best prepare a student in ways instructors may not be able to, such as developing ideas and following through with a process outside of a classroom. I hope that the TCI leaves the ability for that foundation to be formed for incoming freshmen, and I’m excited to see how far the university has progressed in four years time.”
