We regularly speak with OU-C students to get their perspective on topics relevant to campus. This time, we asked them to describe some of the attributes of fellow students who generally are most likely to get the most out of the campus educational experience.
“A student who is committed and who has his/her priorities in balance as well as someone who is serious and sees the benefits of attending college,” was the response of Justin Woodard, a human services technology major from Chillicothe High School. “It helps to be outgoing and open to new cultures and ideas. In general, students who are doers will enjoy it here.”
“Flexibility is important. The majority of the students are older and have jobs and families to take care of,” said Jerrod Albright of Vinton County High School. “Somebody who knows how to manage time and balance activities, both in the classroom and with a social life” will most likely make the most of the OU-C experience he said. Albright is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in specialized studies in the disciplines of communication studies and recreation.
“Someone who is focused and good at studying, plus who is willing to approach teachers and gain their help,” was the response of Tayler Whiting, a physical therapy major from Hillsboro High School.
“Someone who is driven, works has and cares about his/her classes and major,” said Stephanie Grigsby, an early childhood education major from Adena High School.
“A person who is dedicated, had a good work ethic and a positive attitude. Also, it helps it you have friends in your classes,” said Clinton Brown, a business major from Unioto High School.
Trent Bee, a human services technology major from Unioto High School, remarked,” A laid-back person can to well here. Why be stressed out?”
Bryant Gibson, an education major from Westfall High School, suggested, “Be yourself. Someone who is genuine will like it here.”
