What made you decide to attend OIT?

I liked the idea of small class sizes, hands on learning, and the feel of the campus just seemed friendly and inviting.

What is your favorite class?

I can't narrow it down to one. Just about any of the engineering classes that I have taken I have loved. The professors do a great job making sure you understand the material and enjoy it.

If your best friend was trying to choose a college, what would you tell them about OIT?

It's a great school, small classes, good teachers, and lots of help from all over campus if you need it. If you really want to succeed in your major I would suggest OIT.

What career do you hope to have after you graduate?

I hope to be able to pursue a career in the applications side of Renewable Energy and research and development that is focused towards that field.

What’s the best thing about campus life, campus activities, and the other Fun parts of campus?

I really enjoy getting involved with clubs and groups on campus. They are a great way to get to know people and learn more about your major. The Residence Hall has been the best part of the campus experience. I have met more people, got involved in more activities, and in general had more fun by living on campus.

What’s the best thing about OIT?

Small class sizes; you get to know your teachers, they know you, and if you need help generally you can find them and get your questions answered.

Do you have any advice for new students?

Get involved, stay up on your studies and homework, and spend at least your first year at OIT in the Residence Hall to help build some lasting relationships.
