Year in Review

[ “Year in Review”  is where you should reflect on the past year and show how you have evolved as a person and as a student.  You may want to focus on your growth in a particular area (as a leader, scholar, researcher, etc.) or you may want to talk about your overall experience over the past year.  For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]


[ “G.O.A.L.S.” is a place where students write about how their planned, current, and future activities may fit into the Honors & Scholars G.O.A.L.S.: Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development, and Service Engagement.

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

About Me

My name is Brenna Braasch and I am entering Ohio State as a freshman in August of 2017. I am majoring in Zoology with a focus in Pre-Veterinary Medicine. I plan to attend graduate school and obtain a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine within my time at OSU. My dream has always been to work abroad as a veterinarian in conservation.  I have always wanted to make a difference on a worldly scale. Eventually, I would like to open my own veterinary practice. Working in veterinary medicine has been my aspiration for as long as I can remember.  After learning about the phenomenal veterinary program and the endless opportunities offered to the students at Ohio State, I was sure that this was the place that I needed to be.

I am from Alsip, Illinois, which is a suburb of Chicago. I am really looking forward to getting involved on campus. I want to join a veterinary club and the 4 Paws for Ability organization at OSU. I also want to get involved in some sort of research during my four years here.

One of my goals is to become a more social person and show my extroverted side more often. I am determined to try new things and learn a lot about myself and the world around me. I feel that OSU is the perfect place for me to do just that.
