Q&A with microbiology student Tuhina Bhar

Microbiology major Tuhina Bhar is more than 7,000 miles away from her home in Ahmedabad, India, a city of more than 5 million residents. On track to graduate in the spring of 2024, Tuhina has her eyes set on a career in research when she wraps up her studies at WSU.

How has WSU prepared you for your future?

WSU has helped me improve my time management. I am on a student VISA (F1 VISA), so I can’t work full time, but once I am done, I will be able to manage work-life balance.

What’s your favorite thing about WSU?

The sunsets here are my all-time favorites. Every time I leave Pullman and go somewhere else, I miss the sunset. I also like the snow – winters in Pullman are the best.

What do you hope to do when you graduate? 

I am hoping to engage myself in research. A few years down the line I would like to head a research project of my own.

Do you have a job on campus?

I work at the WSU Research Park in the Social and Economic Research Center as a clerical assistant.

What are some of your favorite hobbies?

Drawing and painting, listening to meditation music, star gazing, playing badminton with friends, etc. 

What’s a unique fun fact about you?

I love to crunch Ice. I could die for a ball of crushed ice with colored syrup on it.
