New Faces 2016: Cameron Tsosie

Main page content

Cameron Tsosie, a first-year student interested in psychology, wants to get into law enforcement.

Cameron TsosieAutumn quarter didn’t start until Wednesday, September 28 but Cameron Tsosie has already completed his first class at UW Tacoma. Tsosie took part in Summer Bridge, a university program that helps first-year students develop the tools needed to be successful in college. Participants in Summer Bridge take a course on campus from late August to mid-September. “I thought the class was very helpful,” said Tsosie. “I learned how to set priorities and manage my time.”

The 18-year-old came away with more than just credits. Tsosie says the class also helped him create friendships. “There’s a big group of us who friended each other on Facebook and we plan on staying close.”

Tsosie graduated from Auburn High School. He’s interested in getting his degree in psychology and wants eventually to become a police officer. Tsosie—who is a member of the Navajo Tribe—traces his interest in law enforcement to a meeting with tribal police at a career fair. “Talking to them just kind of opened my eyes,” he said. “Their work just seems very interesting.”
