Hi! My name is Tonia!

I am not originally an Oklahoman, but I truly enjoy my adopted state and the city of Claremore!

My background includes employment at an alumni association and hotel management. I enjoy working with people and problem solving – sometimes you just have to think outside of the box for solutions.

Being a recruiter for Rogers State University, I get to find answers or solutions for students every day. It is a positive atmosphere where people are succeeding and growing. RSU is a place that challenges me to grow and expand my knowledge!

It is easy to see why Rogers State University is a good fit for me. The park-like atmosphere with the shade trees, lakes, and the nature reserve on campus remind me of my hometown and of the colleges I attended. RSU preserves and embraces historic brick buildings built on campus. It is a beautiful place.

My colleagues and I work together to make admission to Rogers State University as easy as possible for students transitioning into a new phase in their life. I would love to help you finish what you have started!
