Did Ottawa University Prepare You?

OTTAWA--For some people, graduating college can be exciting, while for others, it can be scary. For senior Curtis Dawson, life beyond graduation is scary.  

“OU has given me a different type of education and a different perspective on life and has prepared me for my future,” Dawson said. Brooklyn Davis, a senior at OU as well, felt much different. 

“OU was a good college experience, but I don’t think it prepared me for graduate school,” Davis said. She applied to different graduate programs hoping that her qualification is enough to be accepted.   

 Ottawa University is a Liberal Arts school, meaning it focuses more on the student’s general education than on just their specific major, helping the students become well-rounded. 

There is not a special class for the students to take that focuses on aspects beyond graduation, such as graduate school or a job.  

I have done all preparation for graduate school on my own, and I feel unprepared because I dont have as many classes in my major areas as other graduate school candidates,” Davis explained. 

The possibility of integrating a class into advice for the post-graduation life may help the students at OU go further in life than they imagined.  

 “There should be more help with internship or applying for graduate school,” she concluded.
