Abstract

Hello

My name is Connor Gregory and this is my E-portfolio, a sample of my academic journey at The Ohio State University.

G.O.A.L.S.

Global Awareness: This would include any way I could learn about or help the world globally. This would include studying abroad and learning about a specific culture. This could also include raising money or supplies for underprivileged areas in the world or places that recently experienced a natural disaster.

Original Inquiry: As a pre-med student the most prominent example would be research. I plan to become involved with a lab and carry out research and with the help of my mentor and possibly my peers discover something new in the world of research.

Academic Enrichment: As a scholars student on a pre-med track a primary focus of mine is my studies. I need to take classes to prepare me for medical school as well as excel in them. Studying will be an important part of my life and my academic success at The Ohio State University.

Leadership Development: During my time here at Ohio State I hope to gain a leadership role in either a club or organization or possibly even start my own club.

Service Engagement: As a bio sci scholars student I have to give up a certain amount of my time to service. I have already participated in larger scale opportunities such as Community Commitment as well as help with a 5k run called Steps For Sarcoma. I will also find an organization I can help with on a more regular schedule.

Artifacts

On August 26, a few friends of mine went and volunteered for Community Commitment as a scholars event. This is when thousands of OSU students go around the Columbus Community and volunteer. My group helped pick up trash in the residential areas off of High Street. It was eye opening to realize how much trash was left outside in the streets, especially when many of those items could have been recycled. Not that I wasn’t aware before but this experience really helped put litter on a larger scale into perspective for me and how it can affect our local environment.

About Me

I, Connor Gregory, am going to be a freshman at THE Ohio State University in the Biological Sciences Scholar program and will be majoring in radiologic sciences and therapy. My plan is to follow a pre-med track and I wanted to pick a major other than biology or chemistry. I want to become a radiologist in the future so I thought this would be a helpful major but I may change it in the future. I am from Monclova Ohio which is a suburb outside of Toledo. This past spring I graduated from Anthony Wayne High School Summa Cum Laude. In high school I played baseball and was on the rowing team, which I was a captain sophomore, junior, and senior year. I enjoy staying active by playing sports casually or just going out for a run. I am a true die hard sports fan, especially with Ohio State football and basketball. I am also a fan of Ohio professional sport teams. I enjoy playing video games, playing cards, and just doing anything with friends too.

Graduation

On May 27, 2017 I graduated from Anthony Wayne High School in Whitehouse Ohio. This was the start of my college journey as I moved on from high school with plans to attend The Ohio State University.
