Behind the scenes with Randy Ocampo

Randy Ocampo knows only one way to live life: full tilt, full time. He spends his days working as an academic advisor to students in the Oregon State Ecampus online postbaccalaureate computer science program. How does he fill the rest of his hours? He has an always-on-the-go family at home, he’s pursuing his MBA on campus with Oregon State, and when he’s not consumed by those two aspects of his life, he’s an avid photographer, paints custom cars, does mixed martial arts and the list goes on.

I thought I knew all of the answers, but the course work definitely sheds a lot of light on some of the bigger picture items.”

“My initial appointment with students is always by phone or video. The first half of that appointment is all about getting to know the student – why they chose OSU, why business, and most importantly, what are the expectations of this degree. That helps me to understand how I may best serve that student,” says business academic advisor Lindsay Niemeyer. Read more »

Because online degrees allow flexibility with when to study, it makes getting a degree possible," says Political Science Academic Advisor Andy Edwards. Read more »
