Bastyr University students come from many walks of life, from across the country, and around the globe. Many had careers before returning to school. Many discovered natural medicine through their own health journey or a loved one's. About 10 percent of Bastyr students are parents. Bastyr students are vegetarians, vegans, carnivores, omnivores … and people who just enjoy a meal with good company.
