Larry Clark ('94, Communication and Asian Studies) is web editor and assistant editor for Washington State Magazine.
As an undergraduate, I lived in Coman Hall, which was the international residence hall when I was a student. My friends from around the world and my interest in foreign languages and cultures led me to study Japanese. My junior year I studied abroad on an exchange program at Kansai Gaidai near Osaka, Japan.
I served as an Alive! summer orientation counselor for three years, and as Alive! assistant director for summer 1994, making some great friends and meeting many of the future Cougs and their parents. I also worked as a Resident Advisor (RA) in Stephenson East my senior and super-senior (fifth!) years at WSU.
Outside of classes in journalism and Asian studies, I played intramural soccer, flag football and softball, helped out a bit at KZUU radio, joined the "World Traveler's Club," served as a rep to the Residence Hall Association, flipped burgers at Regents Dining Hall, went to lots of football games, contributed articles to the Daily Evergreen, had lunch at The Coug with friends, did a mean Aerosmith lip sync for homecoming one year, and created some excellent memories over the years.
It's quite amazing to be back in Pullman and working at WSU, but so much of what I remember is still here: faculty, staff and students doing fascinating research; the hills around campus that kept me in shape (even after visiting Daylight Donuts so many times in the early 90s); and the Cougar spirit.
I look forward to reading your stories here. Please drop me a note on my Discussion page (link up in the right corner) if you have any questions.
