“Tarleton is close to family and friends from high school. Many of my extended family members are alumni dating back to the 1950s where my Great Uncle was a Cadet Colonel in the ROTC program and my Great Aunt was a cheerleader. Also because of the wonderful traditions Tarleton State holds close to its heart,” says Onstott.

Onstott is currently an athletic trainer for the Corp of Cadets and a member of the Tarleton Athletic Trainers Association. She is also a member of Order of Omega Greek Honor Society, as well as a member of Alpha Omicron Pi (AOII) and current chapter president for two consecutive terms. After graduation in December, Onstott plans to continue her education here at Tarleton in the MSAT program. She hopes to get a job in the National Football League as an Athletic Trainer.

Onstott says her favorite thing about Tarleton is the traidtions.

“My favorite thing about Tarleton is all of the Traditions that this school holds close to its heart and that has continued to for years. I have never seen another school so passionate and caring about their traditions and making sure that they carry on every year better than the last. I think that’s something that makes Tarleton stand out and special compared to other schools,” Onstott said.

Onstott wants to tell incoming and current freshman to not be afraid of taking chances and trying new things.

“Jump out of your comfort zones and get involved in as much as possible. You never know what amazing opportunities are just waiting around the corner for you. Make friends with everyone you meet on campus and throughout all of the different organizations. It’s one of my favorite things to walk through campus and be able to see someone I know or to be able to participate in all of the other organization’s campus events,” said Onstott.
