Transfer Student to Softball Star
As she reflects on her time as a Wildcat, Baily Paul '22 is only more certain that Linfield was the right university for her. "I discovered so many pathways, I have amazing memories and amazing people by my side. There were some long days, but it's been so worth it," she said.

The Whole Perspective
"Being creative drives me. I came into Linfield a little lost. I’m so grateful to have found professors and classmates who continue to push me to be better. I’ve learned how to be an advocate, not just for others, but for myself."

Harvesting a New Passion
"Honestly, it just came out of nowhere," said Evan Kern '23. "Not a lot of schools in the country have a wine studies program. It's really cool that Linfield students have the opportunity to study wine right in the center of one of the premier wine regions in the world."

Rising to the Challenge
“Linfield brings the character out in each student. Our coaches aren’t necessarily just trying to make us better players, they’re trying to make us better people. You see that in the classroom as well, the professors all show good character and they’re very personable. Learning how to be a better human is taught in the classroom.”
