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: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]


[ “G.O.A.L.S.” is a place where students write about how their planned, current, and future activities may fit into the Honors & Scholars G.O.A.L.S.: Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development, and Service Engagement.

Global Awareness: Students cultivate and develop their appreciation for diversity and each individual’s unique differences. For example, consider course work, study abroad, involvement in cultural organizations or activities, etc .
Original Inquiry: Honors & Scholars students understand the research process by engaging in experiences ranging from in-class scholarly endeavors to creative inquiry projects to independent experiences with top researchers across campus and in the global community. For example, consider research, creative productions or performances, advanced course work, etc.
Academic Enrichment: Honors & Scholars students pursue academic excellence through rigorous curricular experiences beyond the university norm both in and out of the classroom.
Leadership Development: Honors & Scholars students develop leadership skills that can be demonstrated in the classroom, in the community, in their co-curricular activities, and in their future roles in society.
Service Engagement: Honors & Scholars students commit to service to the community.]


[“Career” is where you can collect information about your experiences and skills that will apply to your future career.  Like your resume, this is information that will evolve over time and should be continually updated.   For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]


GES Presentation : This presentation was completed for my Scholars 1100 class. The topic was solar panel efficiency – where it stands and current steps being made to improve it. I researched this topic and found three scholarly articles that applied to my topic. I found that there are improvements being researched currently but that we just don’t have technology capable of improving solar panel efficiency today. This project was a good way to get to know two of my classmates as well as understand what teachers expect when they assign you a project requiring research. All of my classmates had to find three relevant articles, create an annotated bibliography, and then present the findings to the class. This presentation required focused group work, time management, and interpersonal skills. This was the first of many projects to come that will show me what skills are required to succeed in the industry in just a few short years.

About Me

Logan_Graduation_2015My name is Logan Markle and I am from Ashland, OH. I was very involved in academics and extracurricular activities in high school. This passion for learning and involvement followed me to OSU. I plan on earning my undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering and then pursuing a graduate degree in aerospace engineering. I am in the BuckeyePhil, a student organization devoted to learning and playing quality music in an orchestral setting. I like to go to one of the many recreational places on campus a few times a week to run and to strengthen my body. One of my favorite opportunities here at OSU is getting to spend time with the wonderful people I am surrounded by. I plan on getting a job working for SpaceX upon graduation and I know I will be able to apply all the knowledge I gained from my time spent at OSU.
