Student Spotlight: Logan Webb

 

USAO senior bachelor of fine arts candidate Logan Webb says he was familiar with the close-knit atmosphere at USAO, but he couldn’t have known when he started how profound an effect the school would have on him over the course of four years.

“The opportunities this university has afforded me are priceless,” Webb said. “By pushing its students to think beyond the parameters of ’self’ in regards to fields of academic study and personal worldviews, USAO has enabled me to think both critically and analytically about the world around me while fostering the skills necessary to question, examine and lead effectively.”

A native of Altus, Webb was on track to attend a university in London, before ultimately deciding that USAO was the right fit for him. Having participated in the Spring Triad throughout high school, he was fairly familiar with the close-knit atmosphere the university boasts as one of its strongest features.

During his time at USAO, Webb has been fortunate enough to represent the university as a Brad Henry International Scholar at Swansea University in Wales. He also has served on multiple committees for campus betterment and advancement, represented the student body as chair of the Division of Arts and Humanities in the Student Government Association, served as both president and public relations chair for the USAO Art Club, sat on the President’s Leadership Council, and participated in the Leadership Academy. He has been inducted into both the Alpha Lambda Delta and Hypatia honor societies. He has worked as a work-study for housing and currently in the communications and marketing department where he does graphic design for the university.

“It has been such a rewarding experience working behind the scenes of campus advertising—from postcards to posters to large-scale university campaigns, I have been able to explore artistic careers that both challenge me and put my multidisciplinary background to good use,” Webb said. “Additionally, the networking opportunities at a small school like USAO are incredible. Thanks to a USAO alumnus and former employee, I have been published twice as a travel writer in Oklahoma-based literary magazine “World Literature Today” about travels that would not have occurred had I not been at USAO at this point in my life.”

Upon graduation from USAO, Webb plans to secure employment in graphic design and advertising before attending graduate school in the fall of 2018, where he intends to pursue his Masters of Art in Design Leadership and Arts and Cultural Management.
