Why ECOEE: The WIU ECOEE program is the whole reason I transferred to Western in the first place. My entire life I have been spending time in the outdoors. I have worked at Philmont Scout Ranch, the premier high adventure base for the Boy Scouts of America, as a Ranger. After working out at Philmont it became clear that my future belongs in the outdoors.
