6 questions with 6 BHSU grads: Walter Bordewyk

Author: BHSU Communications/Thursday, May 3, 2018/Categories: Students, Academic Affairs, College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, Faculty, Outdoor Education, 2018

Full-time jobs, travels across the world, and advanced degrees. In this series “6 questions with 6 grads,” Black Hills State University will highlight the future plans of some of the University’s May 2018 graduates.
 
Name, Location, and Major?
My name is Walter Bordewyk, I’m from Fort Collins, Colo., and I’m majoring in outdoor education.

What are your plans after graduation?
This summer I’m going to east Asia with Campus Ventures for a couple of months.

What will you miss most about BHSU?
The community. Walking across campus and seeing multiple people you know all the time. That sense of belonging.

What’s your favorite memory at BHSU?
My favorite memory at Black Hills State was last December for my Outdoor Skills class. We went on a winter camping trip. We had all gotten to know each other pretty well in the class through the course of the semester and got to finish out the semester by going up into the Hills. We snowshoed in and built snow qunizhees. We slept in the snow and made our own food. It was really cold and definitely a character-building experience.

How has BHSU prepared you for your future?
It’s really given me a good base for working through things and overcoming obstacles. Learning about myself and how I best can work, get tasks done. Having that knowledge and background going into a job is going to be really beneficial.

Who is your favorite professor?
Dr. Abigail Domagall, associate professor of geology. She’s super fun to talk to and she loves what she does. All her classes have been a blast.

Nearly 390 graduates will be recognized during the 175th BHSU Commencement Ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 5 at the Donald E. Young Sports and Fitness Center. The public is invited to join and celebrate the students’ achievements. Degrees to be awarded include 66 master’s degrees, 294 bachelor’s degrees, and 28 associate’s degrees. An honorary doctorate will be bestowed upon Dr. Lowell Amiotte, Oglala Lakota and a 1964 graduate of BHSU.
