“He does not know how to give up.”
Oglethorpe University motto (my alma mater)
I was still getting my bearings after moving to Atlanta when I received a mysterious Open House postcard in the mail.
Little did I know at the time that this was the beginning of an incredible journey which will take my footsteps to Auburn – for the dual-degree program – and later to NYC.
Doubtful that I would even last a couple of years in the city at the time, I still cannot believe that I have been here for four and half years so far, and counting! I love the tremendous amount of opportunities and activities the city has to offer, not to mention the wonderful people I have met who contributed to making this experience a positive one.
And guess what? I met several of them at OU alumni events in NYC and look forward to the next one, on Wednesday, February 8th, between 6:30pm and 8:30pm, at Riposo 72.
I hope you will be able to join us for the Oglethorpe Day NYC 2017 celebration and look forward hearing your OU story!
