Logan Barrett

  • Major: Music with a specialization in Voice and an Honors minor
  • High School: Odessa-Montour, class of 2016

Logan came to OCC with a passion for music. He’s been so inspired by one of his teachers, Dr. David Rudari, he plans to spend his professional career sharing his passion with others. Logan wants to earn his doctoral degree and teach music in college because of Professor Rudari. “I want to impact others the way he’s impacted me. If something doesn’t work one way, he works and works beyond the amount of time he’s required to so his students understand. It’s incredibly important because it means I’m not the only one who cares about my education. For him to show he cares that much is incredible.”

Logan wound up at OCC after being told about the College’s Music program by his choir teacher. He also had a friend at home whom he had performed in musical theater with and was an OCC alum. “I came up for an audition, walked around campus and loved it.” Logan had been accepted by other schools but knew right away OCC was for him.

During his time on campus Logan has been an outstanding student. In the spring he was inducted into international honor society Phi Theta Kappa (PTK). He says his membership has enriched his college experience. “PTK has a habit of getting you to do more. You can do a project here, study abroad there and learn about scholarship opportunities.”

Logan lives in the residence halls and is a member of the Music Living Learning Community, a concentration of Music majors who live and study together. He’s working with four students on the concept of a Residence Hall Association. It would open up the lines of communications between those who oversee the residence halls and residents. The idea has been approved by the college and is in the process of being formulated.

Outside class Logan is also a member of OCC’s Choir, the OCC Singers and the Arts Across Campus committee. “I’ve really loved my time here. It’s been entertaining and possibly the first time in my life I’ve been challenged.”
