  11. 11. 11 #FollowMe... to #LiveYourDream #BeARanger #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. 709 Oklahoma Blvd. will always be a special place in my life. ~ Eric Scott, 2007 mass communication graduate “Being a Ranger means...having access to a great science program led by a brilliant team of professors, which sharpens critical thinking skills and increases involvement in the community. It means being a future leader with timeless friends and tireless professors to support you on the way.” #BeARanger ~ Gabriel Dunbar, Enid post-graduate “I’ve been at Northwestern for 3 years. I’ve met some of the most memorable people I’ve EVER met in my life. Coming from a big city (Houston,TX) to a small town really chiseled me into the man I am today. I truly found who I am, and I am truly thankful for NState. #RRR.” ~ Derrick Thompson, Houston, Texas, sophomore “Being a Ranger means... Forever being a part of a family, no matter what you do or where you go.” #BeARanger ~ Nicole Sidders, NWOSU Alumni “#NWFunClass: Fundamentals of Two Dimensional Art and News Reporting. The art class can teach you all kinds of fun ways to express yourself and have fun with many different art techniques. News Reporting will help you in many ways -- being able to write up a simple news release for any group you are associated with and how to make it a more printable article.” ~ Angelia Case, NWOSU Alumni “#NWFunClass: Marriage and Family with Dr. (Mark) Davis. Who knew I would learn so many life-lessons in this class? Plus, Dr. Davis always handed out snacks!” ~ Kaylyn Hansen, NWOSU Alumni “The #NWFunClass I took was Intro to Mass Comm... taking one class turned into a complete major change! #MassCommAlum.” ~ Chesnei Thomas, NWOSU Alumni “Being a Ranger is far more than going to Northwestern, it is about having pride in your school and yourself, never giving up no matter how many times you have been knocked down, and being a family.” #RRR #RANGERPRIDE #BeARanger ~ Austin Maly, Prague junior “To me, Being a Ranger means having a family that values Commitment, Community and a tireless pursuit of knowledge! I have been given opportunities at Northwestern that I could not have had anywhere else and accomplished so much during my time here. Go Rangers!” ~ Luci O’Hara Riggin, Tulsa senior, transferred to NWOSU in January 2013 We asked our followers via social media questions using the hashtags #BeARanger, #NWMyStory, #NWFunClass, and #NWMemories. Below, and throughout the book, are some of the responses we received: “I’m truly blessed and honored to be given the opportunity to work in the Office of Recruitment for #NWOSU and be one of the few featured Rangers. It’s the best decision I’ve made so far, and I only hope for continued success for this university and as a student here at Northwestern.” ~ Don Holly, Tennessee Colony, Texas, sophomore Don Holly (middle) with Tatum Hansen and Natalie Sacket

I’ve had a great first year of college thanks to NWOSU. I’ve always had diverse interests and due to the wonderful support of this university I’ve been able to pursue many endeavors. I’ve been a part of theatrical productions, written dozens of articles for the paper, was active with PLC, am officially a student ambassador, work for the recruitment office, have pursued community service endeavors, entered writing competitions... Like I said, diverse interests. I was able to do all of this because of the amazing staff and students at NWOSU who have given me these opportunities. I’m forever grateful for the generosity and kind spirit of these people. I’m so grateful for the amazing friends I’ve made and many experiences from this year. #NWOSUMemories #NWMyStory #NWOSU ~ Natalie Sacket Aline sophomore, English
  14. 14. 14 #FollowMe... to #LiveYourDream Developing the leadership potential in each student is an important part of the educational process at Northwestern. Through leadership courses as part of our general education program and by participating in special programs such as the President’s Leadership Class for freshmen and the Chesapeake Scholars/Leadership Northwestern program for upperclassmen, all students are given the opportunity to develop qualities that will prepare them for leadership and service roles on campus, in their communities and in their professions. #Leadership Northwestern has a long history of graduates who have utilized the leadership skills honed here to become leaders at the highest levels of business, public service and our armed forces. I hope you will be the next outstanding leader to represent Northwestern. Dr. Janet Cunningham President and Alumna of Northwestern My time at Northwestern has been nothing less than amazing! When I first came, I did not know what to expect. I quickly found out that this was home. Between the amazing staff and professors I have never felt more in place. At Northwestern Oklahoma State University I have been able to not only further my education, but also my leadership skills. I have been able to be involved in Student Government, Northwestern Student Ambassadors, CORE, REAL, and intramural sports. I have also been able to be a Ranger Connector and a Resident Assistant. No other campus would allow me be apart of so much, and still have time to make life-long friends! Northwestern was the best decisions that I have made! I have had the time of my life and cannot wait for my senior year as a Ranger! #NWOSU #NWmystory -- Tatum Hansen, Beaver senior, SGA President Elementary Education Major

We have that in Marine Corps., but this place has it over any place that I’ve ever been... Some of the senior leaders in our Corps come from the naval academy, the ivy league schools on the east coast, but I’ve always been proud to be from a small college in the heartland of America, where people learn values such as responsibility, hard work, and what it takes to do a good job. You can take an education from Northwestern Oklahoma State and compete in any big company or organization in America. The people here have heart.” ~ Maj. Gen. Vaughn A.
