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.
