Logan is very involved with UMSL activities such as being an ambassador and MOSA. He has been very welcoming to the 1st year students and seems very involved with his own classmates.

He really wants to get to know all of his classmates - both older and younger. Logan’s an ambassador, so he has a hand in picking future optometry family members! He's an all-around good person. He gets his work done on time and still puts a lot of effort into his other activities.

When I think of someone who has really made me feel welcome at UMSL (student-wise) I think of Logan. He always stops to talk when he sees you, he is very involved, and he has a great outlook on life!
Currently involved in MOSA (President-Elect), Intramurals, and is a Student Ambassador for the College of Optometry.

Logan chose UMSL because of the friendly students and helpful professors!


Congratulations Logan on being the UMSL|Optometry October 2015 Student Spotlight winner!!!


  1. Congratulations Logan! We are always so proud of your dedication to your family, friends and future career. You work hard, love deeply and live life to the fullest, you are going to be a wonderful doctor and an asset to your community.

Class of 2021 Mixer

The College of Optometry at UMSL has many distinct features, including small class size, a wide array of externships, successful board pass rates, and high retention, but one of the most defining characteristics is the family feel atmosphere.  Each year the college begins the cycle of recruiting and admitting a new group of individuals from all over the country, and even the world.  This year the College of Optometry is welcoming 49 new students to the Class of 2021.  These students come together as strangers and will leave as close friends and even extended members of one another’s families by the time they graduate.
