Christine - Occupational Therapy Student Ambassador
Hey! My name is Christine Ochsner and I am from Clearwater, Florida. I Majored in Kinesiology at Louisiana State University.
I am a “southern” girly-girl from Florida who wouldn’t miss an LSU football game for the world (Geaux Tigers!). My world comes in two colors: pink or purple & gold. I love being outdoors running and going to the beach. I claim two homes: Florida and Louisiana! Visit MUSC- you’ll know you’ve found the right school. It’s a community of students and professors that you can feel and will want to be a part of. There’s plenty of university socials and activities that help us balance the strenuous curriculum with some relaxation.
I love my new home in beautiful Charleston! There are so many places to explore, shop, eat and relax. I’ll never run out of new places to find! The sweet southern hospitality will surround you and make you immediately feel at home. I love being a tourist on the weekends- plantations, ghost tours, carriage rides, beach trips, shopping and eating my way through downtown, and the nightlife. You’ll never get homesick!
MUSC was my top choice when looking at graduate programs- it’s unmatched by any others! Visit for just one day and you’ll understand why. I met and talked to current OT students and could see just how much they loved their program. The professors are with you every step of the way and have a vested interest in your success. The class sizes are small which allows for you to become a close-knit group. Surrounded by so many other prestigious medical programs and facilities, you are learning with and alongside other pre-healthcare professionals. MUSC’s emphasis on inter-professional education is unlike any other. Every semester you will have the opportunity to collaborate with students in other programs and explore how you will work together as future healthcare providers. I knew MUSC was the right place for me in pursuit of my career in occupational therapy. The experience and opportunities outside of the classroom is unparalleled and will help shape me into the most successful therapist.
