  • D’Anna came to Oregon State from Lake Oswego High School.  A member of the women’s gymnastics team that has competed in the NCAA finals in each of the last four years and a double major in Business and Exercise Science in the OSU Honor’s College with a 3.97 GPA, D’Anna illustrates what can happen when a student takes advantage of opportunities and pursues her dreams and goals.   D’Anna has served as President of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee this year, representing OSU and its student-athletes on the NCAA Certification Steering Committee and the Gender Equity/Diversity and Student Welfare Subcommittee for Certification.  She is also a Senator in ASOSU and chairs the ASOSU/Student Athlete joint committee.  As a member of the gymnastics team, D’Anna helped the team organize the Relay for Life the last two years and has given tirelessly to other community events.  D’Anna recently spoke to friends of the university at a President’s Circle reception a few weeks ago and expressed concern about pursuing a business career in these difficult economic times. All who heard D’Anna speak assured her she will do just fine.  I am also told she is a member of the Spanish Club, the Community Service Club, and the Rumbanana Salsa Dancing Performance Group! As a competitor, she has persevered despite a serious shoulder injury her first year.  At the NCAA Gymnastics National Championship this past April, when she was unexpectedly pressed into service on bars, she answered the challenge like a champion.  Although she had not competed on bars since the beginning of the season, she scored a 9.80 and set the stage for team success in this rotation.  She has also worked tirelessly for the Athletic Department and Oregon State University.  In 2007, for example, she helped organize OSU’s Title IX Celebration and directed the video presentation used at the event. Remarkably, during her OSU career D’Anna has been a walk-on athlete.  She competes for the love of competition, and the camaraderie of her teammates. In recognition of her academic achievements D’Anna has been selected a Scholastic All American by the national gymnastics association for each of her four years at Oregon State.  In 2006 and 2007 she was named to the All-Academic First Team, and recently she was chosen the Outstanding Major of the Year by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.   Not surprisingly, D’Anna has been nominated for a number of post-graduate NCAA and PAC-10 scholarships, including the prestigious NCAA Walter Byers Scholarship.   Currently she works in the OSU Athletic Department Business Office and will intern with Nike this summer.  We are especially proud that D’Anna has been accepted into the 2011 MBA Class at Stanford University. I told D’Anna that it is okay to work for Nike if she can get discounts for the athletics department. As someone with two degrees from Stanford myself, I look forward to calling her a fellow alum
  • Found Varco job through contacts he made through his International Strategy course in Norway. Is so highly regarded at the company, that when he indicated it may be time for him to move on his boss told him to give some thought to what it would take to entice him to stay. His answer – International travel and the opportunity to use his photography/videography skills. They developed a special position for him creating country-specific training videos.

    Math placement scores place students into math classes where students are most successful – placement scores are very accurate
    If you want to take a Math class below where you placed that’s fine
    If you want to take a Math class above where you’ve placed – this is VERY risky and we STRONGLY advise against it
