Artifact 3

One event that I think sums up my spring semester is going to the OSU hockey game with Mount. This event is important to me because it showed to me how people appreciate the work we put in to help others out. Mount was able to get box seats at the hockey game because of our volunteering at Buck-I-Frenzy and because of that I felt that my service was appreciated. I also think that being there as a scholars group was also a great experience because it showed the camaraderie that is there. I think that this was a great moment in my semester and I hope to have other moments that are like this one later on.

Artifact 2

This picture represents my time at OSU thus far because it helps me to connect with my school and with those I am around. This was taken after Ohio State won the football game against Penn State where we ended up rushing to field. In this moment I felt extreme pride in my school and in the fact that I am a student at The Ohio State University. I was surrounded by Mount people at the game and we were all together in our cheering on our team and our school. This was a time where I felt I gained an even bigger connection with those around me both in Mount and at the university and because of that it was an important moment at school for me.

Artifacts

An artifact to me that represents an important part of my life at OSU so far is the Mount Broomball team that I am on. I think that it has been a great way for me to do something fun with people in Mount. This team is a group of people that may not have had a ton of interaction so far so it has been a great way to start to talk to and really get to know more people in Mount. On top of that, it has been a great source of fun, camaraderie, and competition that I enjoy taking part of. This is a great experience that I think has definitely benefitted my time at Ohio State and in Mount thus far.

About Me

Hello. My name is Cassi Epstein. I am a first year undergraduate student who is majoring in Psychology. I am thinking about pursuing a career in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, however I am hoping to take some classes this year that will help me figure this out more. I graduated Fairfield Warde High School in 2017, where I was captain of the swim team and an active member of the Key Club.  When I am not studying, I enjoy reading, swimming, and finding the best restaurants around Columbus.

Year in Review

This year has been a big turning point in my year. I have evolved to become a much more independent person and I think that my character has grown. I have faced much more difficult classes and so I have learned to step up my academics and learn how to study better and be a better student. I also have learned how to handle time management and getting everything done on time on time better.My time in Mount has helped me branch out and meet more people who come from different backgrounds and different places than me and has helped me grow more confident in who I am. I also think that I have gotten to make friends that will be there for me continuing past my time at Ohio State which is great thing to have gained in such little time here so far. I am hoping to be able to continue all the growth that I have already experienced and take it further to continue to make myself better in my next few years in college and at Ohio State.
