Maurice Deishan Jackson, BS, Class of 2021
Why did you choose your WesternU program?
During my application process I had the privilege to tour numerous campuses, but when I toured WesternU I felt very welcomed and as the day progressed it was as if I had already been here for a period of time. The kindness displayed by faculty and students already attending made me wish I was already part of the program. I already knew the optometry program at WesternU was strong but attending a program where I’d feel welcomed and comfortable was important for me as well because it’s this type of environment, I knew would help me succeed in this difficult program of 4 years.
