Urechi Oguguo ’17
UTSA tour guides, called T-Runners, play an important part in helping introduce Future Roadrunners and their families to the UTSA Campus. Meet one of them, Urechi Oguguo.
Urechi, an architecture major originally from Nigeria, loves her role as a T-Runner. She takes pride in the fact that she gets to play a part in helping students make “one of the most crucial decisions of their lives”—where to attend college.
When asked why she chose UTSA, Urechi said “UTSA is located in such a beautiful city that welcomes you to your new home away from home. The students, professors and members of the staff are genuinely rooting for your success and (there are) numerous on-campus opportunities available for students.”
She originally decided to become a T-Runner to overcome her fear of public speaking and to step out of her comfort zone. What started out as an opportunity for growth and development has grown to be impactful in helping others. She’s able to use her personal experience to assure anxious prospective students and families that living away from home “is a step worth taking.”
