Karasyn’s Quote:

As a proud OTC alum, I love working with new OTC students! Starting college can be overwhelming. You might feel like you’re entering a new world. And, in a way, you are! The world of higher education has a unique language and culture filled with jargon, acronyms, and customs that might be brand new to you, and that’s ok! I’m here to help you clear a path and become confident in your new journey as an OTC student. Let’s get started!

Abby’s Quote:

Accessible higher education for EVERYONE is a personal passion of mine.  Navigating through the process of attending college as a first-generation, Latinx student was not easy. I was very fortunate to have many people guide me throughout my time at a Dallas Community College and also when I transferred to a four-year university. I am excited to help other students succeed and accomplish any goals they set themselves too! Tambien hablo Español y estoy dispuesta a ayudar y responder cualquier pregunta de padres o estudiantes.
