Abigail Garcia

peer leader Abigail Garcia

Cohort year: 2019-20 
Hometown: Hartford, Mich.
Year in school: junior
Major: psychology
Minors: addiction studies, family science
Why WMU?: I chose to attend WMU because of the location, not being too far from home but not too close. It has helped me gain my independence and I have gained many skills from that. Also, because of the help that I am receiving here at WMU. Without CAMP or the Foundation Scholarship, I wouldn't be able to pursue my goals at Western. My favorite CAMP memory is when we attended Pretty Lake Camp in Fall '19. It was great seeing students from different places being able to relate with one another.
