Second semester junior year/early senior year

What do you remember from your college visit?
How friendly and inviting everyone was
Why did you choose Ohio University?
I chose Ohio University because of the people. Everyone that I ran into/stumbled upon was an inviting face- someone I could talk to. Athens is magical because it brings everyone together. I ultimately chose OHIO because of the electric atmosphere. I am a triplet, and we all had a sense of belonging which you don’t find in just an ordinary school. We all chose to come here, and it has easily been the best decision of my life thus far.
The College of Business and Athens
What are you studying? How did you come to that?
Marketing and Management & Strategic Leadership. I was always infatuated with the concept of business, how people sell themselves, what drives a company, and how to make money. I knew if I studied business, it would lead me on the right path. It’s been my dream as a kid to be a “big boss lady,” and the business world can offer me that experience.
Reflect on your Cluster experience.
Cluster was challenging but fun. I unfortunately did not have it in person but on Zoom. It gave me great insight into real world concepts and how things may be ambiguous – you have to roll with the hand you are given and make the most out of a situation whether it be good or not.
How else are you involved on campus?
I am involved heavily. I am in the Sigma Kappa Beta Upsilon Chapter, Ohio Women in Business, The Schey Sales Centre, The Student Alumni Board, and an Undergraduate Admissions Tour Guide.
What is your graduation year? What do you want to do after graduation?
2023. I want to pursue a career in marketing or management, start small and work my way up. Eventually I would like to own my own business.
Favorite campus landmark? Place to study? Place to eat? Coffee?

What is your favorite thing about Athens, Ohio?
The magic. Everything is in walking distance. Athens is built in a sense where you are supposed to run into strangers and embody who they are. You will never find more diverse, exciting, and fresh people in your entire life. It is the ideal description of everything that encompasses a college town and experience. You are not a number like some schools have you as. It’s big enough to establish yourself as a name that people will remember!!
Would you rather have a rewind button or a pause button on your life, why?
Pause. Life is flying by and so is college. It would be nice to take it all in and breathe. There is no need to grow up so fast!!
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be?
My best of friends. We are so funny, and I think the four of us would be an absolute hoot!
If you can instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?
How to make money!! Stocks!!
If you could visit any place in the world where would it be and why?
Ireland, it is simply stunning.
Favorite season and why?
Summer, you are free.
What is one thing you can’t live without?
Sunshine, it makes everything a little brighter.
