Columbus To Do List #1

Columbus To Do List #1: Food

For this semester I chose from the list food for my exploring Columbus project. For this choice, I am most looking forward to going to Condados, but also I am overall looking forward to getting off campus with my friends and exploring the Columbus (while also eating some good food). Out of this semester, I hope to have a better understanding of the city and be able to make recommendations to others about where they should eat when they visit Columbus.

The first experience was going to Condados. It was my roommates eighteenth birthday so we all decided to get dressed up and go to the short north. Though Condados is usually packed, we went late on a Wednesday and were seated immediately. The tacos were amazing, I tried two different kinds and could barely finish the two. Overall it was a great first choice. My roommates and I also grew a lot closer bonding over dinner. I found that food is a great bonding tool. I also grew in my knowledge of the bus system on the way there, which is extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend and I now feel more confident in navigating the Short North.


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 information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]


[ “G.O.A.L.S.” is a place where students write about how their planned, current, and future activities may fit into the Honors & Scholars G.O.A.L.S.: Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development, and Service Engagement. For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.

Global Awareness: Students cultivate and develop their appreciation for diversity and each individual’s unique differences. For example, consider course work, study abroad, involvement in cultural organizations or activities, etc .
Original Inquiry: Honors & Scholars students understand the research process by engaging in experiences ranging from in-class scholarly endeavors to creative inquiry projects to independent experiences with top researchers across campus and in the global community. For example, consider research, creative productions or performances, advanced course work, etc.
Academic Enrichment: Honors & Scholars students pursue academic excellence through rigorous curricular experiences beyond the university norm both in and out of the classroom.
Leadership Development: Honors & Scholars students develop leadership skills that can be demonstrated in the classroom, in the community, in their co-curricular activities, and in their future roles in society.
Service Engagement: Honors & Scholars students commit to service to the community.]


[“Career” is where you can collect information about your experiences and skills that will apply to your future career.  Like your resume, this is information that will evolve over time and should be continually updated.   For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]


[Artifacts are the items you consider to be representative of your academic interests and achievements. For each entry, include both an artifact and a detailed annotation.  An annotation is a reflective description of the artifact that attempts to communicate its significance.  For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]

About Me

My name is Savannah Giordullo and I am extremely excited to be a part of Humanitarian Engineering Scholars! I am a first year undergraduate student and currently majoring in Undeclared Engineering. I graduated from Mariemont High school in Cincinnati, Ohio where I was involved in Cross Country, National Honors Society, Service Projects Abroad, Key Club and the spring musicals. Outside of school I worked as a math tutor, volunteered at the Cincinnati Observatory, worked as an intern at a law firm, and did service work in Nicaragua in the summer. Through these activities I cultivated a love for physics, space, and inquiry which eventually led me to pursue engineering. As of now, I am unsure the specific branch of engineering I wish to study, but I am leaning towards electrical, mechanical, or aerospace. Outside of my studies, I am also involved in AFROTC and looking to become more involved in clubs such as boxing club and theme park engineering. I am a huge disney fanatic and being a part of their Imagineering team is definitely one of my career dreams. In the future I hope to work as an engineer for the Air force and later work with commercial plane companies or follow a career in designing and building amusement park ride.
