Artifact 2

Near the end of my first semester at Ohio State, I was able to participate in one of the most impactful events for First Year Mount Scholars, Legacy Week. The group that I ended up joining was Team Global, and it was a team that especially appealed to me because I really wanted to join a team that would be able to impact a broader cause.  Subsequently the two projects that we have chosen, A game Night and a college information night for the Asian American Community Services and Ethiopian Tewahedo Social Services are targeted to fulfill the needs of the agency while honoring Ruth Weimer Mount. The creation of these projects required unity as a team, and while we did face obstacles such as agencies not responding frequently, I feel that following a successful budget night, we are able to host an impactful event for the agencies. My contribution as Lead contact for ETSS and Financial Coordinator was especially significant to me, because it showed me that when I was needed I could step up into major roles that have a direct impact on the success of the group. I look forward to hosting these projects and utilizing the newfound skills that I have acquired from my participation in these events.

Artifacts

Earlier this October, I was able to participate in a succession of events that involved the alumni of my scholars group. The committee that I am apart of, Advancement and Alumni Relations Committee, was responsible for putting these events together to both allow for the alumni to enjoy the homecoming festivities and to allow for the first and second years of my scholars group, networking opportunities with the alumni. These events were especially significant to me, as it allowed for me to engage with the alumni and begin the foundation for relationships that I can utilize in the future. From these alumni, I was able to learn their own college experiences, the events that impacted them the most, and any advice that they had to take advantage of the limited time we had as students. These events were pivotal in aiding my realization regarding the importance of alumni and their impact on students, even if they have graduated long ago. Subsequently, I look forward to future events where I am able to connect with more alumni in order to build my own experiences and networks.

About Me

I am Albert He, a first year student from Doylestown, Pennsylvania studying International Business at the Fisher College of Business. Growing up, I have always been draped in Scarlet and Grey, but being from the Philadelphia area I never had the opportunity to experience the traditions here first-hand. Going to the Shoe and the Schott for the first time are all items I plan to check off my bucket list here. I can’t wait to experience all the events that define tOSU, but I am also very excited to begin developing my career. As a business major, not only do I plan to achieve academic success, but I also plan on developing connections and participating in internships in the Columbus area. I plan to make the most of my time here, and I can’t wait for it all to begin at THE Ohio State University.
