Hello Prospective Sooners! I am an alumni blogger, and in my first entry here I would like to share some of my experiences as a student in the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Art and Art History.

I hail from Plano, Texas and I graduated from OU in 2007 with a degree in Art History. After graduation, I moved to New York City to attend NYU for graduate school, and in 2009 I earned a Master’s in Museum Studies. Currently, I work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and I can honestly say that I credit much of the success I’ve had in my life so far to my experiences at OU. The four years I spent in Norman encompassed so many fulfilling and meaningful moments, and OU will always hold a special place in my heart–ask anyone who’s ever encountered me–I never stop talking about the University of Oklahoma!

During my tenure at OU I was able to forge some incredible relationships with my professors, and I think that is one of the keys to making the most of the college experience. One of the greatest things about OU is how accessible professors are to students–there was nary a time when one of my professors was not able to make some time to discuss what we were learning about in class, or even just to chat. I might be biased, but I think the School of Art is a gem, and the enthusiasm the professors impart on the subject matter they teach is palpable in every class session.
