Karla Rios, BIOL Class of 2010

"I graduated OCU in 2010 with a BS in Biology and from the OU College of Dentistry in 2019. I really enjoyed my learning experience at OCU as a whole. The smaller class sizes was one of my favorite aspects, it made it easier for me to connect with other students and with my professors. My core professors were encouraging, easy to talk to, and invested in my education and success; they taught me so much more than the material at hand and made learning fun. I graduated OCU with a strong foundation that has supported me through higher education and life."
