Where Do You Hang-Out In Columbus?

I’ve lived in a suburb of Columbus for my entire life, and I thought I knew everything about the city. When I was a student at Ohio State, I really started to get to know Columbus. Now, I live downtown (2 minutes from Columbus State!) with one of my best friends from college. We love exploring all the city has to offer. And, we try to check out a new place weekly. There are so many good places to eat!

What Was Your Favorite Class In College and Why?

My favorite class in college was a Capstone course I took my final semester. Every week, we volunteered in a middle school classroom and worked with students on leadership skills. I think I made a difference, and I got to know my instructors and classmates as individuals. I’m still good friends with several of my classmates (even the teachers)!

What Do You Love About Columbus State?

I love Columbus State’s diversity. We have diversity in our student body, employees, and programs. Our largest campus is right in the heart of Columbus; what’s not to love about that?   

What Advice Would You Give To Incoming, New Students?

It’s important to get good grades and be involved, but it is just as important to have some fun! College is a unique time, and the experience will move quicker than anything you’ve had before. Meet people, develop passions, and learn to think outside the box.  

Your Current Role At Columbus State and How Your Role Helps Students?

My role is to promote Columbus State to future students. I go to high schools and other community organizations and talk about all of the great things Columbus State has to offer. My favorite part of what I do is talking one-on-one with students about their goals.
