Supervisor Stdnt Success Advsr

University of Central Oklahoma (405) 974-5818 College of Liberal Arts LAR 125 , Box 182


Jeannine Nyangira is the Student Success adviser for English and Sociology majors.

Jeannine was born in Kenya, raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, and lived 14 years in Wheaton, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago).

After attending Wheaton College (BA, Christian Education) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (MA, English), she taught Composition and Business Writing at Doane College in rural Nebraska and Composition at Kennedy-King College in urban Chicago. Most recently, she worked for five years in Admissions at Wheaton College. 

Having moved to Oklahoma in 2010, she’s been pleasantly shocked by how friendly Oklahomans are and enjoys living here—although when football Saturdays roll around, you can find her screaming for her Nebraska Huskers!

Jeannine loves the liberal arts and what they can do for a soul by opening one up to the world. She’s also passionate about connecting people with the information they need. As a Student Success adviser, she’s excited to connect students with resources/ideas/opportunities that will enhance their college experiences.
