About Me

img_6112Hi my name is Abby Greene. I am a first year student majoring in Mathematics and Mathematics Education. After graduating I plan on entering Teach for America and giving back to the communities that need it most. After a few years of teaching I would like to return to school and get a Masters degree to become a guidance councilor. As a Mount Leadership Society Member, service is very important to me. I have participated in four mission trips around the country and abroad. I am also involved in Real Life and their Freshman Leadership Team. Outside of school I like to go exploring in the city of Columbus with my friends and family.

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: http://honors-scholars.osu.edu/e-portfolio.

G.O.A.L.S.

The GOALS for Honors and Scholars stand for Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development, and Service Engagement. To work towards the Global Awareness aspect I have taken American Sign Language and learned about Deaf culture. I have enjoyed learning about this whole other culture that occurs right under our noses. It has been a real eye opening experience to see our people’s lives are so different and as a hearing person I would never know.
Original Inquiry is one I hope to strive toward in the coming years. Being in a STEM field I have lots of opportunities to get into research. In the next 3 years I hope to be a part of a math research team.
The GEs I have taken do not really relate to my major. I wanted to take classes that were different and would broaden my horizons. I have taken 2 Hebrew Bible classes just because they relate to my religious believes and interests. Which has created not only an diverse academic experience.
My leadership development has been the biggest thing for me while at Ohio State. I have a leadership position inside of my scholars program. I am on Major Campus Events Committee, which plans the major, traditional events on campus. I am also am the student representative on the core planning team for Ohio State’s Sesquicentennial. I have been extremely blessed with an opportunity to lead in many different scenarios. My leadership skills have differently been the biggest growth experience throughout the last year.
Service Engagement has been a close second to leadership development. My scholars program has a service basis. The 2nd year is referred to as “The Year of Service”, where we are required to complete 75 hours of service. Also, during our first year we have monthly service events that we go to. I also have taken a Service Learning class. Where we are required to complete 30 hours of service for a class.
