Featured Alum Shannon Eshoff, '11

Major: Health Sciences

Current Position: Graduate student in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the University of Puget Sound, in Tacoma, Wash. She was named a University of Puget Sound Physical Therapy Fellow, which provides a large scholarship to offset more than half of her tuition costs.

Why Whitworth? "Whitworth has a unique community, which I did not find on other campuses. I loved the atmosphere of a small college that is based on Christian values and maintains high academic standards."

Whitworth Activities: Choir, jazz band, intramurals, student life, and ASWU leadership

Quote: "Whitworth University has blessed me in many ways, such as by expanding my knowledge, developing my character, and therefore preparing me for the future. The academic rigor and concurrent support of faculty and staff encouraged me to strive for success, which I continue to do today."

Influential Whitworth Experiences: "In the health sciences department, each one of the professors contributed to my learning experience, either by challenging me to think outside the box or by inspiring me to take responsibility for my education. My advisor, Mike Ediger, was particularly instrumental in supporting my education and preparing me for life after Whitworth."

Career Goals: "When I complete my degree in 2014, I will begin practicing physical therapy to serve people who need help. I plan to apply the valuable lessons I learned at Whitworth so that I can give back to the community."
