Q&A with Samantha Peterson

What do you do here OKWU?

I serve as the Associate Vice President of Enrollment! I get to work directly with the residential & AGS Admissions teams.

What do you like most about working/teaching at OKWU?

My favorite things about working & teaching at OKWU is that I get to do life with fellow believers. I get to start staff meetings & class sessions with prayer/devotion, and I try not to take for granted how rare that is.

I am a Business major & MBA grad from THE OKWU. 🙂
