An artifact I have come into contact with in my first semester at Ohio State is  the ticket from the Michigan State football game. The energy and excitement in the stadium was absolutely unreal. The final win was filled with such a burst of happiness from everyone there. I still have the ticket from that game.

The ticket itself is my artifact. It came from the ticket booth in the stadium and was used for entry to the game. When I look at the ticket, I think of the game itself and the memories surrounding it.

About Me

My name is Rachel Goldstein and I am a current first year at The Ohio State University studying Marketing with minors in Communications and Studio Art. I grew up in Mentor, Ohio which is a city right on Lake Erie and about 20-25 minutes outside of Cleveland on the east side. In high school I was involved in fine art, theatre, DECA, a 2-year career technical program in Marketing and Entrepreneurship, and worked at a car dealership. In my free time, I spend time with my friends and family or I will paint, watch Netflix, or read.

I came to Ohio State for it’s diversity and opportunity and have taken advantage of both. Since coming to Ohio State, aside from being in Business Scholars, I have joined the professional business fraternity Phi Chi Theta, and have started working an internship at The Owens Group. I hope to one day use my degrees to market from a nonprofit or arts related group/company and to work hands on with people and in the creative process.
