Well hello. My name is Zachary Leo Buchholz, but people call me Zack. I am a proud graduate of Wooster High School in Wooster, Ohio. Now, as a proud student at THE Ohio State University I plan to use all my past academic, and personal experiences, in order to establish a strong footing going into the real world looking for meaningful relationships and a meaningful career.
I plan to get there using my background in numerous bands and orchestras, speech and debate, cross country and track, and more! Band and orchestra taught me the value of doing your part within a whole. Without everyone working together and following through on their part, the overall production of the group would be hampered, and ultimately not reach the final goal. Meanwhile my time in speech and debate was teaching me how to become personable. By learning how to entertain, be myself, and defend my opinion I learned valuable lessons in communication, leadership, and teamwork. Finally my time with cross country and track helped me discover and value the hard work and dedication it takes to reach a desired outcome, and ultimately pushing through the pain and struggles to finish what you started.
Furthermore completing plenty of honors, college preparatory, and AP courses in high school I liked to challenge myself in a variety of courses. I spent the last summer as a research assistant in the ORIP at the OARDC under Dr. Warren Dick and worked with him and his lab. The time in the program was a great experience for me as student and person.
Currently I am an undeclared engineering student exploring the resources and opportunities of a large university. Though this is my first semester of college I love my school and the people here and cannot wait continue to discover what it means to be a buckeye.
