| At first, when I graduated, I felt how others did when they got their degree. The overwhelming feeling of "Yes! I did it and now if I can just run out the door." However, the realization of paying for outstanding student loans helped me accomplish my goal to get a job with Garza, Preiss and Co CPAs as my first step to my career. |
OLLU stresses to be a well-rounded individual and being a part of the Accounting Club and SGA helped me deal with public relations and the relations within office politics especially in the health care industry.
OLLU did cultivate me to be a leader and follower. Also, I made the most of my education and if I had to do it all over again, I would choose OLLU.
Even today, I still remain in contact with those who graduated with me, or befriended me during my time at OLLU. Those friends have helped shaped my career (networking does wonders) and in return, I helped them when they needed assistance.
Also, I do donate yearly to OLLU and was down-hearted when the fire broke out last year. I know they will rebuild and I am willing to help with that since OLLU has been a great influence on my life.
Currently, live in Lubbock (home of TTU) and to tell you the truth, I value and cherish what I learned at OLLU. My husband is a graduate of TTU and they (Alumni Assoc) is very persistant in trying to get you to donate (e.g. wanting to donate $50 and they demand not ask for $200). Also, basically, you can buy your way in the Alumni Association since they (TTU) are always asking for donations and breaking ground for new buildings.
As least our Alumni Association is not that aggressive, but if you are willing to help out and pay it forward, then please donate. OLLU Alumni Association will appreciate any monetary donation you are willing contribute.

| OLLU is a small University that may appear less appealing compared to larger, more prestigious Universities in the San Antonio area. However, the faculty at OLLU were always very caring, responsible, and well-versed in their field. The student population was a bit less friendly, mostly I think because a good portion of these students are older, non-traditional, commuting students and there isn't much of a chance to build OLLU bonding among the students. I would have left this University bitter thinking that I hadn't made any friends or lasting relationships if I hadn't decided to get my Ph.D. at a University in a different city in Texas (far, far away from San Antonio). That experience has shown me that the important thing about my undergraduate experience was what I learned from my classes, the relationships I had with my professors, and the professional opportunities that were available at OLLU. OLLU and its faculty/staff gave me the tools that I needed to succeed, the motivation to continue on with my education, and the personal confidence to get what I want when I want it, but I had to work at it-- it wasn't just handed to me (just as in any other school). |

| OLLU is a great university with a varied student body and an amazing number of degree programs from which to choose. I feel fortunate that I am able to attend school here and look forward to completing graduate studies after I earn my BA. Through work, I have met a suprising number of OLLU alumni in management positions at the company I am with now as well as two other companies for which I worked last year. In addition to the people, the campus is gorgeous with an interesting history. |
