Hi, my name is Megan Pettner. I am from Darlington , PA, a small town about an hour Northwest of Pittsburgh. I am an incoming freshman majoring in Architecture. Some of my hobbies include running, baking, and painting. Most of my hobbies are creative because I really like design. I also enjoy science and math, so that is why I am really interested in architecture. It encompasses all of my interests. I am a quiet person, but once I get to know you I am very outgoing. I plan on taking as many opportunities as I can to experience the world and learn new things.
So far, I have really enjoyed my time at Ohio State. I was nervous about coming to a large university, but now I am so glad I did. I enjoy all of my classes and have made so many friends. I find so many opportunities here that I would not have gotten at a smaller school. I feel that I have become a more outgoing and responsible person.
I chose the scholars program because I felt that it would make OSU seem smaller. Not knowing anyone prior to moving onto campus, I was nervous about meeting people. I think it is really good that I get to live with the people who have the same interests and classes as me. I also think it is very beneficial that we get to participate in community service and other special events within the scholars group. I think the traits of involvement, community, and friendship are being exhibited on campus due to the scholars program.
