Living the Code

with President Kayse Shrum
Living the Code is a special video series presented by Dr. Kayse Shrum which showcases the stories of OSU students, faculty, staff, alumni and stakeholders who embody the Cowboy Code. The second episode of the series features alumna Carolina Yanez, a first-generation student who was inspired by her migrant parents to dream as big as the sky to achieve her goals. Yanez’s passion to do what’s right, even when it’s hard, led to her earning two degrees at OSU. She plans to use what she has learned in her time at OSU to give back to the community.
