Global Awareness: Students cultivate and develop their appreciation for diversity and each individual’s unique differences. For example, consider course work, study abroad, involvement in cultural organizations or activities, etc .

In order to pursue Global Awareness I would like to study abroad so I can learn more about the different culturals  that are all around the world. I also would like to help out people and different animal species that are in need. Studying abroad will widen my knowledge and experience in global awareness.

Original Inquiry: Honors & Scholars students understand the research process by engaging in experiences ranging from in-class scholarly endeavors to creative inquiry projects to independent experiences with top researchers across campus and in the global community. For example, consider research, creative productions or performances, advanced course work, etc.

During my time here at The Ohio State University I would like to participate in undergraduate research, so I can learn more about a subject that I am interested in-like veterinary medicine. Working in a lab will help me figure out if I want to continue to do research in the future during my career and will expand my knowledge of how to conduct a lab and use data to support my research.

Academic Enrichment: Honors & Scholars students pursue academic excellence through rigorous curricular experiences beyond the university norm both in and out of the classroom.

As a Honors & Scholars student, I am prepared to take courses that will challenge me intellectually. These rigorous course shall make me a better learner and help me continue down the path of success.

Leadership Development: Honors & Scholars students develop leadership skills that can be demonstrated in the classroom, in the community, in their co-curricular activities, and in their future roles in society.

I would like to achieve a leadership position in a club that revolves around my interests as well as become a leader in the community by working my way up the ladder.

Service Engagement: Honors & Scholars students commit to service to the community.

Giving back is one of the best feelings; knowing that you are helping someone in need. I plan to volunteer my time in local animal shelters and serving the hungry. I did this in high school and I would like to continue these volunteering services while I am here in Columbus.


Honors & Scholars Event:

September 24th, 2017: I went to the Columbus Zoo with a Biological Sciences Scholar group and went on a behind the scenes tour of the zoo. Before going to the zoo I’ve had the interest in becoming a zoo veterinarian and after the trip and tour I have an even stronger interest and hope to pursue an internship with a zoo. This picture is significant to me and my career aspects, because tigers have always been one of my favorite animals at the zoo and I would love to work with them in the future.

During high school I volunteered at the local animal shelter. I have a passion for animals and wanted to start getting some experience with animals that is needed for Veterinary School. For the most part I volunteered in Kitty City socializing the kittens and cats that were in the shelter. I love it there and hope to be able to volunteer my time at the local animal shelter of Columbus.

About Me

Hi, I am Sydney Bostjancic and I am from Macedonia, Ohio-which is about twenty minutes south of Cleveland. I am thrilled to be attending The Ohio State University where I will be pursuing a degree in biology on a pre-veterinary track. When I graduate from The Ohio State University, I want to continue my education at Veterinary School to become a veterinarian. I am very passionate about animals and have had a love for them since I was a little kid. My passion has led me to volunteering at the local animal shelter and interning at a veterinary hospital. That passion has also played a huge part in me choosing to be a veterinarian as my career. All of this has led me to The Ohio State University where I am a Biological Sciences Scholar student and will hopefully be joining clubs and taking advantage of all the opportunities the University has to offer.
