Student - Andrew Nicholas | Northwestern Oklahoma State University
Senior in Pre-Medicine
Hometown: Midwest City
Andrew decided to come to Northwestern because it was someplace he felt like he wouldn’t be just another student. His parents went to college in the Oklahoma City area and most of his friends hadn’t even heard of Northwestern.
“I felt like I could thrive and stand out like I did in high school,” he said.
Q: What is your favorite class or subject and why (not in your major field of study)?
A: I enjoyed psychology a lot, probably because of Dr. Davis more than the actual subject.
Q: What do you like best about going to school here?
A: I love knowing everyone and being known by everyone, it really makes it like a home away from home.
Q: What on/off campus activities/events should a student not miss while attending NWOSU?
A: Make an effort to never miss Homecoming events; Red Riot concerts, Bahama Breakaway, or any home sports games. They need our support, it really helps.
I want to have my own practice one day in plastic surgery. I also want to be successful enough in it that I’m not solely limited to incoming clients; I want to be able to do a lot of pro-bono work.
Q: Why did you choose to earn your degree at Northwestern?
A: Well, I originally came here on a golf scholarship and even though I don’t play anymore I love the campus and the city, so I decided to stay.
Q: What are the benefits of earning a degree from Northwestern?
A: It has served a lot of alumni in reaching higher goals in life. Whether it’s Patrick Crayton, Mike Hargrove, or whoever, you can go far.
