My favorite thing about Panhandle State are the professors. They are all so understanding and care for each of us as an individual.Lupita Jimenez
As a child, Lupita loved to bake, even though she burned everything. Now that she is older, she still loves to bake, but she doesn’t burn the food anymore. Growing up in Guymon, Lupita was able to be concurrently enrolled at OPSU while she was still in high school, which has her set to graduate early. If all goes to plan, she’ll be leaving OPSU in May 2021 with a business administration degree with a focus in management. Lupita hopes to work as a Human Resource Manager after graduating.
At first, coming to OPSU was a matter of simplicity for Ms. Jimenez. After her first year on campus, Lupita had grown quite fond of the faculty, organizations, and being so close to home. When asked what her favorite thing about OPSU was, Lupita said “My favorite thing about Panhandle State are the professors. They are all so understanding and care for each of us as an individual. This helps me a lot when I’m looking for someone to be a reference or look over my résumé.”
Ms. Jimenez is the reporter for Phi Beta Lambda, which is one of her favorite clubs on campus, and she is also a member of the Hispanic American Leadership Organization, or HALO, and the Art Images club.
Director of Hispanic Student Services and Upward Bound, Teri Mora said, “Lupita is a former Upward Bound Student from Guymon High School and was very engaged in activities and lessons to better herself as she has huge goals of both art and business careers, hopefully in a combination of the both. She will be very successful in the future based on her drive, passion, and abilities.”
