Why did you choose Oregon Tech?

The location of Oregon Tech was close to home and rural. I was drawn to Tech's emphasis on both academic and athletic excellence.

What do you like best about your major?

Communication Studies covers a wide variety of subjects and in turn has taught me a wide variety of applicable skills such as writing, public speaking, negotiating, and advertising.

What would be your dream job in your major?

I plan to use my Communication Studies degree to become an elementary teacher.

What’s your favorite thing to do off campus?

I enjoy being outdoors fishing, hiking, running, and more in and near Klamath Falls.

What’s your most memorable moment on campus?

Being a member of the basketball team, I can think of several memorable games and moments such as beating SOU in double overtime and Kassi Conditt, our 6' 1" post scoring a three-pointer. I will also never forget the times our men came back to Klamath Falls after winning the NAIA Division II National Championship!
