Nykole Mitchell

Hometown: Seattle, WA

Graduation Year: 2015

Major: I'm doing a double major in Business Administration and Society, Ethics and Human Behavior.

What major did you intend to start with? I wanted to do Nursing, but I knew UWB didn’t have that at the time, and I wasn’t all that certain as to what I wanted to do.

How many times did you change my major? Once.

What do you hope to do when you graduate? I would like to stay in the Seattle area and work for a major company that’s based in Seattle, like Boeing, Amazon, or Microsoft.

What is a random fact about you? I spell my name Nykole.

What is your favorite movie(s)? “She’s the Man,” “Law Abiding Citizen,” “Apocalypto,” and “Tarzan”


What do you like about UWB? I like UWB because of the small class sizes and how I am not just a number but a student who can get to know their professor.

What has been the best class you've taken? My favorite classes at UWB have been the dance classes I have taken. I really enjoyed it because I was able to express myself and, of course, the minimal stress compared to a lecture class.

What is your favorite thing to do on campus? My favorite thing to do at UWB is go on the trails that are in our backyard.

How are you involved on the campus? I am involved in a lot of ways. I am involved in Residential Life, as well as many clubs, like DECA, International Student Facilitator (ISF), ISF-tutoring, intramural sports, the Cooking Club, and the African American Student Union.

What advice would you give a high school student about going to college? Some advice would be time management as well as try something new and something that may be outside your comfort zone that is positive, like studying abroad.
