  • Junior Guadalupe Estrada is a first-generation student from Newman Grove, Neb., who found her passion at Wayne State and is double-majoring in sociology and biology. She said she initially came to WSC by chance – her sister was transferring here, and she followed. It turned out to be a great choice – and now she has a fellowship with the University of Washington in the areas of conservation and environmental science.

    “I'm excited to network and learn about conservation efforts and implement some ideas here in the Midwest,” said Estrada. “I am looking forward to taking classes on ecology and conservation to learn about our natural world and its systems and also learn about conservation efforts. I also look forward to learning more about sociological theories. Once I graduate, I would really like to become a field biologist, then go to grad school and use my knowledge in social and natural sciences to help implement policies that are good for the planet and society.”

    The small class sizes and kind faculty, Estrada said, are what have helped her grow and find opportunities.

    “There is a lot of research showing that attending smaller classes is better for your education. I like that I am able to contact my professors, even when they are busy. They are always willing to meet with me. Both of my advisors are kind and have always given me advice when I needed it.”

  • Our next featured student is from the Physical Sciences and Mathematics Department.

    Justin Larsen of Crete said he chose Wayne because of the great price, location, and community, and chose his major, math education, because he wanted to teach and care for students, with math being an area that he already enjoyed. Larsen graduated in May with his math education degree.

    “Not only was I sharpened intellectually, but was also built up in character through perseverance,” he said. “At WSC, I have had an abundance of opportunities to serve the community through leadership positions. Opportunities are everywhere, but it takes stepping out of comfort zones and being stretched in order to truly grow.”

    One of the main things Larsen is thankful for is the sense of community and relationships he experienced while at Wayne State through involvement in clubs and organizations such as Math Club and Cru.

    “Throughout my time at Wayne, I have thoroughly enjoyed the friends I have met who have become family to me. Lifelong friendships built up through late nights and early mornings. Countless memories that are priceless and many trials that tested and refined me. There are many small-town adventures awaiting in and around Wayne, but it's the big hearts in the people of Wayne who make all the difference.”

    Congratulations on graduating, Justin, and we hope you continue to persevere through your real-world experiences!

  • Did you know that Wayne State College offers programs in the family and consumer sciences, such as fashion merchandising, interior design, and nutrition?

    Or, you can major in family and consumer sciences education, like sophomore Tori Lane of Omaha, and teach the skills in these areas to the next generation. Influenced by her high school teacher, Lane said she hopes to be a teacher just like her someday. So Lane chose Wayne State for training in the education field – and she’s happy she did.

    “College is expensive, but Wayne was definitely affordable,” she said. “But coming to Wayne wasn’t about the money. It was about how much I loved the school and the community. I like that it’s a smaller school with good class sizes. I enjoy the community, everyone is there to help, and I have found some amazing friends here at Wayne State.”

  • On this Memorial Day, we remember the words of Gen. "Stormin' " Norman Schwarzkopf (1934-2012): "It doesn’t take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle." Wayne State stands grateful for the selfless acts of heroism that have preserved and defended liberty throughout our history.

  • This week’s featured student is from the Business and Economics Department. Kody Wageman of Pender graduated this month with a bachelor’s degree in business with concentrations in finance and management. When he started college, he was undeclared and searching for a purpose, he said.

    “What eventually led me to business was that it made sense to me,” Wageman said. “The faculty were inviting, and they got to know me on a first-name basis. The professors really care about your success just as much as you care about your success.”

    Wageman found purpose and success through numerous opportunities at Wayne State, such as serving as president of Student Senate for the 2018-19 school year.

    “Wayne State has prepared me for my future by providing me the tools to be my best. The coursework was challenging and relevant. Through opportunities such as Student Senate, I was able to strengthen my communication skills and attention to detail. Connecting with professionals on campus has been so rewarding.”

    “I love that WSC has this ‘family’ feel to it. I am definitely going to miss seeing all of the familiar faces. There is a ton of opportunity at WSC, and I truly believe it is the most beautiful campus in Nebraska.”

    Congratulations on your graduation, Kody, and we can’t wait to hear about your future accomplishments!

  • It is no secret that our Wildcats are passionate about their studies and enjoy the campus life environment, where they make lifelong friends, grow in character, and are challenged academically. This summer, we want to share their stories with you. Each week, we will be featuring students from each of our academic departments to illustrate what Wayne State has to offer – and why it’s always a great day to be a Wildcat!

    From the Art and Design Department: Kati Krueger of Pierce, who will be a senior this fall, found her passion in graphic design and studio art after beginning at WSC as a psychology major.

    “I chose to take a design class my freshman year just for the fun of it,” she said. “Halfway through the class, I knew I loved art too much for it just to be my hobby in life and changed my major to graphic design.”

    Then a visiting artist who had a studio job while also working in the art field came to teach a workshop at Wayne State – and inspired Krueger to add studio art as a second program of study.

    “Without the support from my teachers during my freshman year and my involvement in Art Club, I would still be a psychology major who just dabbled with painting for a hobby. Now, I am passionate about my classes and enjoy the work I am producing.”

    Krueger’s work, “Blooming,” is featured at the current art show in the Nordstrand Visual Arts Gallery in Conn Library. The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

    And did you know? Wayne State College’s graphic design program was named the No. 5 Most Affordable Graphic Design Degree in the U.S. in 2018.
