Goodwell, Okla. — A self-described tinkerer, Nick Tuttle originally came to OPSU after gaining interest in the Industrial Technology program following a visit to his high school from then Industrial Technology department head Larry Hough. Hough worked with Tuttle and his fellow students on some woodworking projects perking Tuttle’s interest. Two bachelor’s degrees later Tuttle is still at OPSU, but now he wears many hats as a member of the friendly staff.

A Guymon high school graduate, Nick Tuttle began working at OPSU in 2008 as the Webmaster. Currently, Tuttle also serves as the Institutional Research Director and the Executive Director of the Panhandle State Association of Alumni and Friends. No day is typical for him as Tuttle maintains the OPSU website while processing data and running Institutional Research reports.

In May of 2009, Tuttle graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s of Technology degree in Technology, with an option in Computer Graphics and a minor in Computer Information Systems. He also graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree with a major in Computer Information Systems and a minor in Business Administration in May of 2012. Magna cum laude indicates academic excellence with a grade point average between 3.75 to 3.99.

Tuttle commented on his responsibilities saying, “I really enjoy building the website. As a computer graphics guy, I love to come up with a design that is well balanced, and then as a programmer I like to make it functional. I also enjoy seeing how the numbers and data relate to each other, figuring out how to make those connections, and then making them useful. ”

“I feel like the faculty at OPSU, and specifically in the Business and Technology department, provide a very well-rounded education. They have been very flexible and allowed me to explore my interests while giving me a basic problem solving skill set that is useful in any area.”

Future goals for Tuttle include making things more streamlined and accessible for both the website and within the Institutional Research department. He is currently working on a new look for the website which is set to be live in January.

In his free time, Tuttle enjoys building things and “tinkering”. He is a Main Street Guymon board member as well as a member of the Guymon Flying Tigers. He is also a member of the Panhandle Area Communicators (PAC) and has given presentations to the group on a number of computer-related topics.
