Where are you from?
I’m from Tulsa, Oklahoma!
Why did you choose to attend OSUIT?
I chose OSUIT because the Culinary Arts program is one the best (if not the best) in the state of Oklahoma. The faculty is well connected with the industry and the program offers so many experiences I couldn’t get anywhere else.
What is your program, and why did you choose it?
I’m in the Culinary Arts Program! I chose it because I’ve always enjoyed cooking food and feeding others. I think it’s a wonderful art that helps connect people regardless of their differences or walk in life, and I want to be able to help connect others through my food!
How can you Be True To You at OSUIT?
“Be True to You at OSUIT” resonates with me because OSUIT provides a college education in fields that traditional four-year colleges often overlook. It’s an affordable education and it allows me to pursue my passion and grow as a person.
It’s dramatic to say, but this close to my graduation I feel like a completely different person than when I first enrolled. I can confidently say that I am a happier person. I’m getting to go to France to further pursue the culinary arts thanks to OSUIT, something I only ever dreamed of.
I just want to hammer home how much of a golden opportunity my time at OSUIT was. It’s not my first try at college; I originally attended another college to obtain a degree in Biomedical Engineering, but it wasn’t the right fit for me, and I ended up doing quite poorly. But OSUIT let me turn myself around and find success. It’s no exaggeration to say that this is where I’m truly me.
How will you Be the One They Call?
OSUIT is so well connected to the industry that just attending here opens up doors and provides a myriad of employment opportunities. Further, the high-quality education has provided me with the skills to rapidly find success.
What would you tell someone about OSUIT?
OSUIT is a fantastic school to attend, regardless of which program you go into. It’s affordable yet high quality and rate of employment after graduation makes it an incredible tool to instantly transition into any field.
More than that, though, is the incredible faculty! Everywhere you look at OSUIT there is someone who genuinely wants to see you succeed and will do everything in their power to help you. For me, at least, it’s truly like having a second family.
