#NWMyStory: So many things in my life today can be traced back to
my time at NWOSU -- the family that I added, the life-long friends that
were made and the career I’ve pursued. NWOSU gave me a passion for
my education, even being encouraged to continue that education into
graduate school and ultimately a Master’s degree. So many late nights
in the dorms, at student ministries, in the newsroom and in the office.
