SarahOeltjenThe Rock Solid Regent for the week of October 3 is Sarah Oeltjen. Sarah is a sophomore business administration major with an emphasis in finance. Sarah was nominated by Maria Diemer, Assistant Director of Global Affairs. She is from Westerstede, Germany and originally came to RU to study English as a second language. Maria Diemer shared that since arriving on our campus Sarah has proven herself to be a great student, leader, and employee. She consistently maintains a high GPA while working as a global ambassador to new international students and participating in the Multicultural Club and Craft Club. Additionally, Sarah recently served as an orientation leader for new students arriving on campus this semester. Sarah enjoys attending RU because the faculty members care about students and are willing to help if a problem arises. She enjoys the small classroom sizes which allows her to ask teachers questions directly. Furthermore, Sarah enjoys being a residential student because in Germany “living on campus” is not offered to students. She is very appreciative for having so many people around her who are willing to help. She feels that RU has now become a second home for her. Sarah is not exactly sure what she will do after graduation. Currently she is considering continuing her education to earn a Master’s degree in Business. Her ultimate goal is to one day own her own business. Congratulations Sarah, you are a ROCK SOLID REGENT.
