“I give Ms. Alexander my highest recommendation as she is an extremely bright student with an extraordinarily positive attitude toward life. Ms. Alexander was always eager to not only learn more about the methods, but also how to apply what she was learning to real-world situations; this made her a delight to have in class. Her dynamic viewpoints bought to life that she truly cared about being successful in both class and her career. I have no doubt that when Ms. Alexander graduates from OSU she will represent our university well.” March 14, 2013

“As Assistant Director of Academic Services at Oklahoma State University, it is my pleasure to recommend Alexis Alexander. Ms. Alexander, a Sports Media student has maintained a 3.377 grade point average at OSU around a rigorous academic program and a plethora of community and campus involvement. To see a student handle all the things that she has done is truly amazing and it would not surprise me to see her working or a successful company one day.” February 24, 2013

“Alexis was very eager and willing to improve in every facet of broadcasting she faced. She had to experience a lot of different aspects of what we do other than the on air portion and took it in stride. A pleasure to have around. She will be successful if she keeps this attitude and eagerness.” September 9, 2013
