Karl Nacalaban, a third-year pharmacy student from Seattle, is wrapping up his year at the helm of the Associated Students of Washington State University Spokane (ASWSUS).

As his term winds down, Nacalaban is preparing for his fourth year of studies and reflecting on the past year. Under his leadership, ASWSUS explored ways to develop some sort of child care program, secured space in an existing building while working with the university to create a possible fitness center, made connections with students at the Yakima extension programs in Nursing and Pharmacy, helped develop a Diversity Center on campus, and more.
