Wecloming our New TSL Minh Nguyen

A junior accounting major, Minh transferred to SU from South Seattle Community College. In his transition from community college to Minh is grateful that the professors at SU are helpful to the students.

In his free time Minh likes to read, go running on various trails, and jam out to Imagine Dragon.

Minh is a foodie who enjoys an array of cuisines including: Thai tasties, Mexican goodness, and of course pizza. When looking for dessert, Minh looks no further than pie! Delicious apple pie, key lime pie, and pumpkin pie, mmmm pumpkin pie.

Recently Minh spent some time on campus with his SSCC pals, giving them a taste of the SU experience.

Interview with a Tekkie: Rickey Leachman

Transferring from Everett Community College this Winter, Rickey is a Criminal Justice major. He loves the foods options at SU and that Bon App is sensitive to the different dietary needs of the student body. Most mornings Rickey is enjoying a breakfast with delicious French toast from C-Street.

Rickey joined the Tek after coming to the Transfer SUccess orientation, which he feels helped him become more prepared to take on this new venture. And though the weather may bring him down from time to time, he finds solace (and sometimes sunshine) in the Tek.

A native of St Louis, MO and a HUGE sports fan, Rickey's loyalties will always remain with the: Rams and Cardinals, Mizzou Tigers and with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In his spare time Rickey enjoys watching TV and movies, playing football (weather permitting), and beach watching.

Having being stationed in Everett with the US Navy, Rickey plans to join NCIS after graduating, protecting and defending our men and women in Blue.
