Freshman year is over. That is very weird to say. I can honestly say that I’m a different person than when I came into school in some ways, and that’s for the better. I switched my major from Architecture to Landscape Architecture, got the Knowlton Ambassador position, joined a scholar’s committee, and even signed up to be put on an honors track. Life is strange in college, but I wouldn’t ever trade it back for what I had during high school. I shaved my head, went to Chicago, and had some of the best times of my life I’ve ever had. I’ve met amazing people, friends, and teachers. I’m extremely excited for what the future holds for me for my upcoming years at Ohio State. I’m also minoring in Economics and most likely Architecture too. Now with Summer approaching, it’s time to work on my drawing, painting, running, and making money. Thank you.

My name is Conner Cunningham and I’m currently a freshman at OSU studying architecture. I am from West Chester, Ohio until I began attending The Ohio State University. OSU is a great school and I feel I have really grown as a person here, and I believe this is the best place that I can study the field of architecture. The Knowlton School of Architecture is perfect for fostering my creativity and knowledge surrounding the field of architecture.
I am also in the “Architecture Scholars” program here at OSU. I have met many good friends through this program and I always enjoy the activities and lessons we have. The scholars program is great for a person like me who values diversity, intelligence, service, and globalization.
