The size of the school is just perfect for me, and I love that you can go get help from professors that know your name and not have to refer to you as an ID number!

Schlochtermeier is no stranger to the Aggie Nation because she has three older siblings that all graduated from Panhandle State. “When I heard them talk about their experiences, I knew I wanted to be down here as well,” she said, “The size of the school is just perfect for me, and I love that you can go get help from professors that know your name and not have to refer to you as an ID number!”

During her time on campus, she has become extremely involved in student organizations. Her enthusiasm for the university made her the perfect fit to be an Ambassador and Aggie Leader. Schlochtermeier currently serves as the Vice President of the OPSU Ambassadors.

When she isn’t giving tours, Affton can be found in the Student Affairs department. She enjoys being able to help put on events that provide students free, fun activities to do, and get out and meet new people.

Schlochtermeier had no hesitation about her favorite part of Panhandle State. “The people for sure! I love that I can walk down the sidewalk and say hi to just about everyone. Not even just from students alone, but staff as well. There is so much of a difference being somewhere and going to school in a good environment, with people who want to see you succeed, rather than just going somewhere that wants your tuition money. And the difference is very obvious here!”

After graduation, Affton has hopes to intern with a marketing agency to gain more experience and opportunities through the process. Eventually, her goal is to own her own marketing agency. When she isn’t busy with campus activities, Affton has three older siblings that keep her on her toes. She used to show livestock and still helps her family with the breeding stock they raise.
