The WICHE program has been instrumental in me achieving my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at CSU. As the costs of higher education rise (particularly out-of state) with a lack of response in salaries, it is becoming almost prohibitive for many to obtain professional degrees. It is truly because of this program that I was able to pursue the career that I look forward to every day! I would like to extend my gratitude to the State of Wyoming for helping me achieve my life long dream of working with animals and saving lives. I encourage legislators to continue support for this invaluable program and giving people a chance to make a difference!
