[Kasey Every:] My experience at OSU Cascades has been great. The classrooms are small. You have great faculty. You’re really involved throughout the whole education process.
[David Knuff:] Kasey is a great marketing student to have in class. She’s great because she currently has a job in the advertising industry, and she’s able to bring real-world experiences into the classroom, which helps me bridge the gap between theory and practice.
[Every:] At OSU Cascades I received the Dean’s Leadership Scholarship Award, and that’s been an integral part of me pursuing to finish my business degree.
[Knuff:] Kasey is also the founder of our fledgling student marketing group. When looking for students to step up and take a leadership role, that’s exactly what Kasey did. She’s currently our CEO.
[Every:] When the student marketing group gets together, we discuss opportunities that would relate to the real world. We have guest speakers in; we discuss what we learn from them.
Being a full-time student and working full time at a business, I find that I really need a balance in my life, so that’s where rodeo and barrel racing really becomes a huge part of what I do. My career as a barrel racer’s been really exciting. I’ve gotten to do it my whole life—it was a family function that we did all the time. And now I compete professionally all over the Northwest.
I would recommend OSU Cascades to people because you get to live in Bend, Oregon—it’s gorgeous here. You have a lot of opportunities through the school, and you can finish your four-year degree.
