"From growing up in the American West I have learned that the area holds many myths, endless landscapes, incredible history, and an array of viewpoints. The Center of the American West has played a huge role in developing my thoughts of the West and applying them in my major, environmental studies. I have been exposed to many views, ideas, and western issues through guest speakers, Center of the American West dinners, research, and events. The Center has been the core of my university experience."
