Armand McCoy, Mass Communications, 2010
How did my education at OCU help me to get where I am today?
My OCU experience has benefitted me greatly in helping me achieve my career goals. My professors had worked in the communications and advertising industry and were able to give me real-world knowledge of what life is like in my industry. OCU championed my independence and creative problem solving skills, both in and out of the classroom.
OCU taught me to think on my feet, adapt and overcome any challenge set before me. I look back on my amazing OCU experience on a regular basis.
