What Are Our Students Doing?
"The biggest thing you can do as a freshman," Chris Frazier declares, "is to get involved."
And she should know. Now president of Oregon Tech's student government, Communication Studies major Honor "Chris" Frazier started Oregon Tech as a psychology major, who lived and worked off-campus. She was not excited about school, work, or life in general.
A visit to her ACAD class from Kevin Brown changed her mind. She changed majors, ran for a minor ASOIT office, and the rest is history.
Chris "loves" her major, due to its versatility and her conviction that technology can never replace face-to-face communication. Her work at ASOIT, she explains, is a "lab setting," where she can practice for the real world and adapt to many different possibilities presented daily, without being fired if she makes a mistake.
Chris finds the communication major a "perfect fit" that allows her to interact with multiple audiences: students, teachers, administrators. "If you dont have the people skills," she proclaims, "you are bankrupt."
