  • 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.
    • In the future I hope to study abroad in China to strengthen my growing Chinese language and fully immerse in the culture. I hope to partake in the Design Principles and Biomedical Research trip during the summer of my junior year.
  • 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.
    • I am currently reaching out to different laboratories to get involved in research and have completed a research and career exploration class through the Molecular Genetics department.
  • 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.
    • I am involved on campus in various organizations from Society of Women Engineers to the Mountaineering Club. In addition to these organizations, I had the opportunity to become a Buckeye Leadership Fellow (BLF). This year is the first time the program has been opened to freshman. BLF focuses on leadership development of students as they transition into college.
  • Service Engagement: Honors & Scholars students commit to service to the community.
