Hello! My name is Whitney Tinjum and I just started my Sophomore year at Washington State University. I am from Chisago Lakes, Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes! My family consists of my parents who are both guidance counselors in schools (lucky me!) and my little brother Will, who will be going into the seventh grade. My family is the single most important thing to me, and its tough being so far away from home. I ended up in Washington because I received a full scholarship to play basketball for the Washington State Cougars. My goal is to come out of college with a degree in Strategic Communications and a minor in Spanish and Business. I really don’t have a specific job in mind, and that is why I love the communications area so much, it is such a broad topic. The purpose of this blog is to #1. try and get an ‘A’ in Comm 210 and #2. to express myself and let my readers really get to know me on a personal level. I really enjoy being outside, whether its riding bike, walking, gardening or horseback riding, I love it all! some other hobbies that I am interested in would be helping my little brother with athletics, reading and cooking. Overall, I am a fun loving individual who goes with the flow and life, so far, has treated me well.
