Goals

My goal by the end of the semester is to make a study plan for finals week. I’m hoping that this will provide me with a helpful guideline of specific topics I need to study and when I need to study them by so I am well prepared for my exams. I’m also hoping that creating a schedule will prevent me from procrastinating and will leave me time to relax and still do the things I enjoy leading up to finals week.

My goal by the end of this school year is to find a job. I feel that finding a job will help me explore the opportunities available to me while I’m at OSU, and it will give me experience and responsibilities outside of my academics. I can use my Handshake profile and attend the Career Fair to start networking and to look at potential internships and job positions. I can also explore places on campus and find out if they are currently hiring.

My goal by the end of undergraduate study is to be involved in undergraduate research. I think doing research would be a great opportunity to explore what I’m interested in while also learning about the procedures, methods, and tools used in research labs. I will contact professors whose research interests me and ask if they have any availability in their labs. I can also look for research positions outside of campus.

About Me

My name is Zoe Bergsman. I am from Huntington Woods, Michigan- a suburb 20 minutes from Detroit. I attended Berkley High School and was involved in National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, Tri-M Music Honor Society, Science National Honor Society, and French National Honor Society. I played the trumpet in my high school marching band and served as a rank leader my senior year. I was also a diver on my school’s Girl’s Swim and Dive team my sophomore, junior, and senior years, and I was elected as a captain my senior year.

I am pursuing a major in chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences. In addition to being a member of the STEM EE Scholars Program, I am also a part of the Morrill Scholars Program. Aside from school, I enjoy baking, playing with my dogs, watching movies, spending time with my friends, traveling, and supporting social justice issues. I am looking forward to my college experience at The Ohio State University and finding a career path in the STEM field that is right for me.
