Today’s student profile is Brady Schumacher.
-What is you program? Where did you attend high school?
I’m currently at my 3rd year here in the Respiratory Therapy program. I attended Spooner Area School District in northern Wisconsin.
-Who is your favorite instructor?
My favorite instructor at Western has been Franz Shuttenhelm, who is currently my main instructor for my Respiratory Therapy program.
-What do you like most about campus?
What I like most about Western is the campus and the environment. It’s no more than a 10 minute walk to class, and I like the smaller campus atmosphere as it’s easy to meet new people and see them on a daily basis.
-Future career goals?
My future career goals include graduating this April, and beginning my career as a Respiratory Therapist in a hospital somewhere in Wisconsin.
-Advice for future students?
If I was to offer any advice to future students, it would be to set aside certain days and times where you study, do homework, etc. Also, explore La Crosse. There’s so much to do here, from the endless trails you can walk on near the bluffs, to visiting the beach in the summer, and everything else in between.
