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 guidance on using your ePortfolio, including questions and prompts that will help you get started, please visit the Honors & Scholars ePortfolio course in Carmen.

G.O.A.L.S.

  • Global Awareness: In planning how I will complete my general education requirements I have chosen a selection of courses covering various cultures. If I am able to do it and still graduate in 4 year I would also like to take the opportunity to study abroad. I am not sure where I would like to go, but I’m sure it will be a great experience.
  • Original Inquiry: Although research is not usually a part of an actuarial science student’s college experience and for mathematics majors it tends to be relegated to graduate school, I think the knowledge that I gain in the area of statistics would allow me to help with analysis for other research projects. If possible I might like to look into being involved in research this way.
  • Academic Enrichment: I am and will continue to take a substantial number of honors and upper level courses throughout my academic career in pursuit of an industrious dual degree in mathematics and actuarial science.
  • Leadership Development: In various types of group work I like to take some form of leadership. Through the various group projects I will inevitably encounter and the discussion based setting that small sizes of honors classes lend themselves to I hope to further develop and exercise my leadership skills.
  • Service Engagement: In my junior year of high school I had to devote 24 hours of service to a single organization in order to get an in depth grasp of what the organization is doing and its impact on the community. For mine I volunteered at the Holy Rosary Saint John’s Community Kitchen, and I would like to continue to volunteer there in the future during my time at Ohio State.
