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.]


I currently work at The Ohio State University Trademark and Licensing Services Department as a student finance / marketing employee. I maintain relations with OSU licensees, report royalty payments and reconcile deposit records, and process all new product samples in preparation for board review. This job pertains to my potential career path as I am interested in pursuing a career in sports licensing in the future. Throughout my experiences at Trademark and Licensing Services, I have gained elementary licensing knowledge and many business skills which will be valuable as I progress through my business endeavors. Ultimately, my on-campus job is the first step into future success here at the Max M. Fisher College of Business.

About Me

My name is Zach Spangler, and I am a freshman originally from Centerville, Ohio currently specializing in Finance within the Max M. Fisher College of Business. I am a third-generation Buckeye along with my brother who is a junior studying Mechanical Engineering. I am a dedicated and responsible student eager for the next challenge. Throughout my first year here at Ohio State, my main mission was to get involved in extracurricular activities that aligned with my interests. I am a member of the Business Scholars Program where I take part in leadership development trainings, team building exercises, service engagements, and company site visits. I also volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus where I tutor and mentor inner city children to demonstrate the importance of continued education. In addition, I am a finance / marketing student employee at The Ohio State University Trademark and Licensing Services. Lastly, I am also a project associate within Student Consulting for Non-Profit Organizations (SCNO) where I work in a team to provide free consulting services to primarily local area nonprofits.
