Bio:

Hi Tigers! My name is Oswald and I graduated Oxy in 1887 (the first animal ever to graduate from Oxy)! My favorite part of Oxy is its strong sense of community. I am so excited to give back and contribute in any way I can to the success of current Oxy students. As an expert in School Spirit and as a current mascot at Oxy I would especially love to connect with current students who are interested in pursuing a career in this field! GO TIGERS! WOOHOOO! 

Career Advice:

The liberal arts education we receive at Oxy is something you should not be afraid to advertise, as it is actually a huge advantage! Writing skills, critical thinking, and interdisciplinary work are all skills gained at Oxy and will make you competitive in any field you want to pursue. You just need to have the right guidance and mentorship to know how to frame it for your desired career path (even if you don't know what that is yet). I hope you use this platform effectively because I honestly wish I had this when I was a small cub at Oxy trying to figure out what to do with my life!
