Margaret Allen

Ambassador 2018-2020
Mechanical Engineering

Hometown: Powell, Ohio

Expected Graduation: Spring 2020

Maggie grew up in Powell, Ohio, a busy suburb of Columbus. After her older sister began attending Ohio University, Maggie came to love the close-knit community, beautiful campus, and the small-town atmosphere – it felt like home.

Initially unsure what major she wanted to pursue, Maggie chose mechanical engineering based on positive comments shared by her sister and other Russ College students. She says she made the right decision.

Maggie is a member of the Robe Leadership Institute (RLI) and Margaret Boyd Scholars program, both of which furthered her professional development and connections to people on campus and beyond. She also interned at JP Morgan Chase in Columbus, Ohio, during summer 2018 and Freeport-McMoRan in Phoenix, Arizona, during summer 2019.

In her free time, Maggie hikes, explores Athens, and frequently attends concerts.
