My group ventured to Stauf’s Coffee in Grandview Heights on September 29th and had a wonderful time. My favorite part of the day was being able to sit down with my group outside of class and have a genuine conversation. In class, the conversations can sometimes feel forced or limited and this was a good chance to get to know each other. However, it was a little hard to coordinate meeting times and means of getting there, but in the end it worked out just fine. Grandview Heights was such a cute little town and it was interesting to explore. I have never been around those parts before so it was exciting to be able to leave campus and see what the rest of the area has to offer. I would definitely recommend Stauf’s and Grandview Heights to my friend as a good area to just relax and have a good time away from the hustle of campus.

Though this looks like a picture of an ordinary buckeye, it means so much more to me. I was a freshman like everyone else at orientation this summer. I was sitting in the Ohio Union, beyond excited to have my new iPad, to be able to schedule new and exciting classes, when an old police man walked up to me. He told me many stories about the history of the university and of the many experiences his children had in their years here. At the end of our lengthy exchange, he reached into his pocket and pulled out this buckeye. He told me it would be good luck and asked me to promise to try my best through the seemingly endless struggles of college. To this day, I take the buckeye with me to every class to bring me good luck and remind me of that promise I made to that policeman.
Hi! My name is Emily Broski and I am a first year on the track to be a biomedical engineer. In high school, I was president of my BSA Venture Crew. My troop and I had the amazing opportunity to backpack through the mountains of New Mexico for twelve days: one of the most impactful trips of my life. Here at Ohio State, I plan on being a big part of Doctors Without Borders and Off the Lake Productions. As of now, the most ambitious goal for my future is to go to medical school. Though my plans may change, I’m certain that I want to devote my life to helping others. I’m looking forward to going abroad during my time at OSU to help those in need around the world. This upcoming summer (2020), I am travelling to Sri Lanka with Doctors without Borders to shadow doctors in different social class hospitals and go to underdeveloped villages to teach the children about personal hygiene. However, in my time out of school, I enjoy music and theater. Acting has always been a passion of mine and a great way to let loose and express myself on a different platform. I hope to either participate in Off the Lake’s productions or Ohio State’s theater department’s productions.
My top five strengths are Kindness, Love, Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence, Honesty, and Social Intelligence. I believe kindness is the most important trait in a person. No matter what social class, race, gender, everyone can be kind and make a change in the people around them. This is the same for love. Being with someone you love brings so much happiness into your life and is very important to leading a successful life. The third strength also resonates greatly in my life through my travelling. One of my favorite things in life is to explore the world around me and discover new, beautiful things everyday. Honesty, to me, is the basis of any relationship. I see no purpose in being social if everyone is being someone they aren’t. I really value someone who is genuine and trustworthy. The last strength, social intelligence, is important in everyday life. Though school tests other kinds of intelligence, a person cannot succeed in life without also having a strong social intelligence.
