Why did you choose OHIO?
I chose OHIO because it has everything I want in a university. OHIO has an excellent education program, a compact campus, and the most important, friendly peers and educators who want you to succeed. 

What is your favorite place on campus?
My favorite place on campus would have to be Ping Recreation Center. No matter what kind of day it is, Ping is never too far away and is a great way to get rid of stress. 

What is your favorite place in Athens?
My favorite place in Athens is The Ridges. There is so much history and interesting facts behind it. It always gives others the chills, but, behind all of the "horror stories," you hear it really is just a great historical place for Athens to have. 

What is one thing you wish you knew about the transfer process that you know now?
Looking back, I wish I knew that the transfer process really isn't that complicated. I was always worried that I forgot to turn in some form or some important document and that I wouldn't be able to take classes my first term. OHIO will help you every step of the way, making sure that you are enrolled in the right classes and that you are able to attend the term you applied for. 

What is your best piece of advice for a prospective transfer student?
Don't be afraid to contact OHIO with questions. Everyone is here to help and guide you through this process. 

What clubs/organizations are you involved with?
Right now I'm only involved with the OHIO Transfer Ambassador Program, I am continually looking for a club/organization that shares my interest.
