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 guidance on using your ePortfolio, including questions and prompts that will help you get started, please visit the Honors & Scholars ePortfolio course in Carmen.

G.O.A.L.S.

One of my favorite things about the honors program is that the G.O.A.L.S. (Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development, Service Engagement) is that these pillars of the honors program are well aligned with my own academic aspirations, experiences, and future plans.

  • Global Awareness: Global experience has already proven to be an important part of my career at OSU, including classes in both East Asian Art History and Spanish. In addition to this, I plan on getting a minor in West European Studies as well as studying abroad to further my experience and understanding of other cultures.
  • Original Inquiry: Before coming to OSU, I already obtained experience through multiple internship programs. While at OSU, I plan to continue working with my past connections as well as work at new companies in order to best prepare me for the business world beyond college.
  • Academic Enrichment: I personally love the challenge that honors and high level classes give me, and have made it a goal to take many of them each semester in order to continue to push myself in the classroom. Outside of class, school remains my top priority, so I strive to work hard to keep up with all my work in order to get ahead.
  • Leadership Development: While at OSU, I plan on getting practical leadership experience in both clubs and internships that I can utilize in my future career.
  • Service Engagement: Service is really important to me, and I plan on continuing to actively look to serve my community both through my church and through student organizations while at Ohio State.

Career

[“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 guidance on using your ePortfolio, including questions and prompts that will help you get started, please visit the Honors & Scholars ePortfolio course in Carmen.

Artifacts

[Artifacts are the items you consider to be representative of your academic interests and achievements. For each entry, include both an artifact and a detailed annotation.  An annotation includes both a description of the artifact and a reflection on why it is important to you, what you learned, and what it means for your next steps.  For more guidance on using your ePortfolio, including questions and prompts that will help you get started, please visit the Honors & Scholars ePortfolio course in Carmen.

About Me

My name is Ethan Zaller, and I am from Powell, Ohio, which is about 25 minutes from campus. I am intending to get a double major in political science and economics, with a minor in West European Studies. My goal is to eventually go to business school after I graduate from Ohio State in order to eventually go into consulting or marketing. Outside of school, I love basketball, soccer, art, and traveling.
