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.]


Music– I’ve been playing music since the third grade, and it has been a staple throughout my life and education. As I began music, I was not experienced in the slightest, and having something so foreign to me interested me greatly. I strived to be the best I could be, and excelled. It wasn’t until my first concert that I realized that I am not the only that matters, that I am an integral part of a group. This struck a chord with me, and music has given me another perspective on how my part in a project contributes to the whole, and being able to do this effectively requires listening, patience, and devotion. These have been taught to me all through music, and it really shows that you can learn from very different experiences than what you might think.

Community– Coming from a small town, I was very involved in my community and for a while. I learned the importance of having a strong connection with the community. I was very nervous about starting college in a new and much larger city. Being in the Humanitarian Engineering Scholar Program, I have been given the opportunity to have that connection with a community, whether it be the city of Columbus or even the collegiate community through various activities and volunteering opportunities.
