My first semester at Ohio State has been great. I have learned so much from my instructors and peers who have helped me throughout the past couple of months. I hope to continue my involvement in scholars by participating in scholars events and volunteering in the community. I also hope to become more involved in other Ohio State related functions and clubs. The classes I am taking are varied in subject matter and will give me a better idea of what I want to do going forward. I am not sure where but I am most likely going to get a job this summer and work full time hopefully doing something related to architecture. To accomplish these goals going forward I am going to need to be more proactive. I believe overall, I had a successful first semester here at Ohio State that has given me a better understanding of what I want to do with my life.
