Allison Messenger

Senior, Biochemistry
Commuting from: U-District
ADVICE FOR STUDENTS: Google Maps and OneBus Away are amazing resources as a commuter- use them OFTEN! Depending on where you're commuting from, you might find that there are multiple routes you can take to get to campus in case you miss your bus and are in a rush to get to class (I know I do). You might not have to wait another 20-30 minutes for your usual bus to come along.
