Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are current WSU Global Campus students who provide feedback and support in the selection of Global Connections web-based programs. Email a Student Ambassador to share what programs you’d like to see offered, learn about events to connect with your peers, or if you’d just like to say “hi!” If you’re a new student and have any questions about student life as an online degree seeker just send us an email and a student ambassador will reply to you.

Amanda Terry

Major: Human Development

Expected Graduation: Spring 2023

Hello, my name is Amanda Terry and I am a junior here at WSU. I am working toward a bachelor’s degree in human development with a minor in child and youth development. I have a passion for Social-Emotional learning and my goal is to become a Social-Emotional curriculum developer. I am a Washington native, and I live in western Washington with my husband and children.

In my free time, I enjoy exploring with my family. My favorite places to explore are western Washington beaches and nature trails. Some of my favorite hobbies are traveling and reading.

I look forward to connecting with you. Feel free to reach out to me at

Micheal Golliet

Major: Information Systems

Expected Graduation: Fall 2022

My name is Micheal Golliet, I am a 27-year-old returning Information Systems student, having spent time in retail management, home healthcare, and government work as well as pursuing various entrepreneurial pursuits.  I spent most of my life in Western Washington, in the Thurston/Pierce County areas. Philosophy is my favorite subject, and I’m a financial fluency evangelist!  My mission is to become a tech leader to empower our disadvantaged youth through business, tech, and financial fluency education and mentorship,

My wife became a travelling radiology tech in June 2021, so we have been moving all around. We left Western Washington in May 2021, and have lived in Wenatchee, WA and Albuquerque, NM since then, and will be in Columbus, Ohio this summer. Aside from the obligatory Netflix and music, I do enjoy travelling, cooking, eating, and Taft boots. I have been fortunate enough to spend time in Italy, Japan, and Costa Rica, as well as several U.S. states. If New Zealand remains on track to open its borders to tourists in November, then I’ll hopefully make the trip after I graduate in December. I am a voracious learner, and if you catch me up late at night, I’m probably reading a new book, learning new coding skills, or spending too much time on Reddit finance pages.

You can contact me at, and I look forward to connecting with you!

Nolan Thomaswick

Major: Accounting

Expected Graduation: Fall 2022

Hello. I am Nolan Thomaswick and I am currently earning my BBA in Accounting here at WSU’s Global Campus; Fall of ’22 here I come. I reside in the swing state of Ohio. Previously, I attended the University of Toledo where I received my BA in Theatre. 

During my time at WSU, I have had the privilege of serving as a Student Ambassador, Chair of the RAA Committee, and President of ASWSUG. These teams have allowed me to forge friendships with folks a continent away. I am excited to return to an Ambassador Role. Please, if you have any ideas for program topics you would like to see, let us know. I can’t emphasize enough that we want to hear from students.               

Outside of work and school I love to play D&D, look at birds, and read, especially fantasy and biographies. Like any reasonable person, I believe there is room in this world for both Star Trek and Star Wars, but Star Trek is generally better. Thanks for reading, and best of luck on your studies and experiences.
