My name is Lance Ramos. I grew up in Tulsa, OK and have lived there all of my life. However, I’m looking to move somewhere warmer upon graduation. I’ve fallen in love with the state of California primarily due to the fantastic weather, proximity to water, mountains, and national parks. I major in Health and Exercise Science (yes, I can help you workout). I plan to attend Physical Therapy school in the Summer and become a PT! I am also a McNair scholar; this entails doing research and presenting it at research conferences. I’ve had several great experiences through the McNair scholars program. For example, I had the chance to speak to the Associate Program Scientist for NASA about their exercise methods on the International Space Station. Additionally, I am a ‘Big’ for Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Oklahoma -- a very fulfilling experience. I have a girlfriend of five years who is also an OU student. We both hope to become health care professionals. I enjoy playing racquetball, soccer, and most anything outdoors (i.e. fishing, hiking, swimming, cycling). Growing up, soccer was always a major part of my life -- I played for as many as 4 teams at one time.
Sooners at Griffith Park!

Unfortunately, I took a class over the winter break; as such, I read and wrote for approximately 4-7 hours each day. On the bright side, I’ll be graduating in May. As a matter of fact, I will be the first in my family to graduate from a four-year university. I enjoy reading when I have free time. Sadly, college has dampered reading aspirations with all of the mandatory reading imposed on us by professors. I typically don’t watch television -- as I mention earlier, I’d prefer to be outside. I love listening to music; some of the genres I listen to are: Christian contemporary, classical, rock, country, nortenas (Spanish country), and bachata (Spanish dance music).
