Looking back on my first few weeks here at OSU it has really made me appreciate being a part of the Dunn Sport and Wellness Scholars Program. Normally, for a new student in they might have one friend that they know on campus that they can talk to about a varying array of topics. The great thing about my situation was that I was able to move in early and get to know some of my fellow scholars on a much more personal level. The relationships that were built during welcome week have lasted and turned into some of my best friends. The first year scholars are a very close knit group that really resembles a family in my eyes. I can talk to them just as if they are one of my best friends I’ve known my whole life. This has made the transition from high school to college practically seamless for me. I am so excited to see what our scholars program is able to accomplish over the next few years! One highlight that I think was an amazing opportunity that I am excited to participate in next year was the buckeython dance marathon. Not only was the dance marathon extremely fun, it was for an amazing cause. The Dunn Scholars program in conjunction with many other students raised a very significant amount of money for cancer research. Overall, this year has been great and I’m extremely excited to see what the future holds for myself, and the Dunn Sport and Wellness Scholars program as a whole.
