Tulsi Patel

I am currently a senior at ATU majoring in Graphic Design and minoring in Business. I was born in Hattiesburg, MS, but after a couple years my family and I moved to Morrilton, AR when I was about 2 or 3 years old. I grew up in Morrilton (small town 30 minutes from Tech) and attended public school except for 4th and 5th grade when I went to a private school called Sacred Heart. My senior year of high school, I found my love for art because of my art and multimedia teacher (Lynn Rutz and Mrs. Beck this is for you J). I enjoyed working in Photoshop and InDesign more than drawing/painting, so I chose the path of graphic design.  My senior year of high school I entered this art competition called Thea Foundation Scholarship and I won 1st place, so it paid for my schooling at ATU.  I graduated from Morrilton High School in 2012 and started attending ATU in the fall of 2012. It took me a while to get involved, but once I did, I instantly enjoyed my time here at Tech and it quickly became my HOME!  I cannot express how much I love this school, the staff (especially in the art department), and the people here. When I am not doing homework or SAB events, you’ll probably see me doing more homework, illustrating on the computer, running, or anything outdoors related.

Elijah Moreno

Born and raised in Arkansas, I'm originally from Hot Springs. I went to a private school from K-7th and was homeschooled up until my junior year. From there, I attended and graduated at Lakeside High school (Go Rams!). I chose Arkansas Tech because of the campus's size. It isn't too small, yet it's not too big either. It feels just like home. To top it all off, the people here are phenomenal and extremely friendly. I am now a senior at Tech finishing up my degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice. When I'm not doing homework, I'm constantly working for the many jobs I have on campus such as Motion Pictures for SAB, being an RA for overflow, and proudly capturing the magical moments at Tech as one of the campus photographers. I have quite a few passions that I have developed since I came to Tech. To name just a few, I enjoy longboarding, hiking, photography, biking, hammocking, swimming, weight-lifting, and running (the freshman 15 hit me hard and I realized I couldn't continue that trend). Now that you know all about me, feel free to say hi to me around campus and ask me about how to join SAB.
