Alumnus, Class of 2011

What made you decide to attend OIT?

OIT's computer department was too good to pass up.

What is (or was) your favorite class?

CST416 Networks easily, not just designing single dimension programs, but writing code and getting feedback on other computers is so satisfying.

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

I'm hoping to get a job with Google, or some other big computer company like HP, Intel, Microsoft, etc.

What's the best thing about campus life, campus activities, and the other "fun" parts of college?

I love being around all my friends. Living in the ResHall, we're all close and there is almost always someone to hang out with.

What's the best thing about OIT?

For me, the small class sizes are perfect. I get bogged down in huge classes that are so typical at other schools. I'm on a first name basis with all my professors which makes going in for help that much easier.

Do you have any advice for new students?

You'll get out of college what you put into it. Get involved.
