What do you like most about working with new students?

Your future is just beginning and there are endless opportunities in front of you. You have so much space to dream and just to get to know your strengths and passions better. I love the excitement and nerves that come with freshman year, because I’m nostalgic, and it reminds me of how shaping my freshman year was – how many great memories I made. 

What advice would you give to OU first year students?

Embrace the newness, the awkwardness, and the time you have to take to build a new community and learn more about yourself. There’s not many times in life specifically designed for you to explore your options, so take advantage of it!
