Why did you choose OIT?

I chose OIT due to the prestige that went along with the Medical Imaging majors. They seemed interesting to me, and OIT produces the best graduates in all of the programs offered. I really wanted to be a part of that and the smaller class sizes were a big interest as well.

What do you like best about your major?

I really enjoy the patient contact that we get and the images that I will create on the job. I love people, so interacting with them and helping them is perfect. The various imaging studies and therapeutic procedures are super interesting as well. Plus, the full year of externship will be a great experience.

What clubs or activities are you involved with?

I am part of the Nuclear Medicine Club, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and played on intramural teams here and there.

What career do you hope to have after you graduate from OIT?

Most immediately, I want to be a Nuclear Medicine Technologist. Further than that, I plan on being a traveling tech to see a lot of America, and then eventually be a lead tech at hospital that I find myself the most compatible with.

Do you have any advice for incoming students?

Look at all of your options. Make sure that you are getting into a major that you want to do and can see yourself doing for a long time. Don’t get discouraged if things aren’t turning out the way you want them to. Make sure to have fun as well.
