Major: Civil Engineering
Hometown: Klamath Falls, OR
I have three main reasons why I chose Oregon Tech. The first and most important reason was the tuition. I am able to afford such a great college and be practically debt free! The second reason was the high percentage of job placement after college. The last reason is because I am able to play the sport I love and I couldn't imagine not playing it after high school - soccer.
What I found out that I love most about my major is that the professors are very willing to help you when needed. I feel comfortable talking to my professors about anything! Most of all, having a great advisor is what I really like because he is able to help me forecast my future for the next 3 years - which scholarships to apply for and what internships to look for.
I am involved with the Oregon Tech Varsity Women's Soccer team. This has taught me organization and most of all dedication.
Since I am just finishing up my freshman year and not having taken many civil or engineering classes, I am not sure what I want to pursue after I graduate from Oregon Tech.
