[Arya Morman:] I decided to come to Oregon State because I did some research and found out that Oregon State has one of the top pharmacy programs. What motivated me to become a pharmacist was my grandmother. She takes a lot of medications, and I always help her with the timing of her medications and how much she should take.

[Derron Coles:] I think what impressed me about Arya is her enthusiasm about the subject matter and learning the subject matter. She has the ability to make math fun, which is the mark of a good math teacher.

[Morman:] I’m really excited to be a TA this fall. I’m going to be able to help students, and they’re going to be able to come to me with questions.

[Coles:] I think what Arya will learn by being a TA in this course is interpersonal skills. If you’re teaching somebody mathematics, you really develop those skills because you’re working with someone who might be confused or upset, and it’s your job to make them more optimistic.

[Morman:] Another thing I like about Oregon State is the Educational Opportunities Program, also known as the EOP. They really helped me to feel comfortable in my own skin and challenged me to be a better student. I’m the vice president of the Black Student Union, and my role is to advocate for incoming black freshmen who may feel lost or feel as if they need something more on campus.

Oregon State is a great school because not only are the teachers hands-on involved, but also the students are.
