Why did you choose OHIO?
I chose OHIO because of the beautiful campus, friendly faculty, and spirited students. When I visited OHIO, I was happy to see a majority of Bobcats wearing their OHIO colors. The campus is a comfortable size, so you never feel lost or scared. Also, because of the comfortable size of the campus, the faculty-to-student ratio allows for great interaction; which is something a lot of campuses do not have.

What is your favorite place on campus?
My favorite place on campus would have to be Ping Recreation Center. I love that the recreation center has so many exercise classes and recreational sports available. It's a great place to keep in shape and also get involved in sports.

What is your favorite place in Athens?
My favorite place in Athens is the Putt Putt Course at The Ridges. I work at the "Putt People First" course and it's a great place to relax and play with friends on a sunny day!

What is one thing you wish you knew about the transfer process that you know now?
I wish that when I transferred the Transfer Ambassador Program existed so I could have met with advisors or students who would have helped me with all the different questions I had.

What is your best piece of advice for a prospective transfer student?
I would say to keep an open mind and keep an eye out for opportunities, clubs, and sports that catch your attention. You get a second chance to start over at a great school, so take this opportunity and use it to its full advantage.
