wue testimonial

I’m an Arizona resident and chose to enroll at New Mexico State University. NMSU was the ideal university for me because their animal science degree program best fits my goals. Since I was able to enroll through WICHE’s Western Undergraduate Exchange, it was actually more affordable to go to school there. I am so appreciative of WUE—now I can pursue my dream career in the equine industry. Thank you!
