Student Spotlight: Kaitlyn Langbein

Kaitlyn Langbein decided to attend The Ohio State University because of the diverse community and endless opportunities. Now, Langbein is looking toward growing her community as she explores new opportunities in graduate school.

Why did you choose The Ohio State University?

I chose to study Spanish at Ohio State because there is a diverse community on and around campus. In addition, Ohio State had endless opportunities for me to explore my interests outside of Spanish. I am able to study a language and culture I enjoy and also take classes to help advance my studies before applying to graduate school.

Why did you pick Honors and Scholars?
I picked Honors and Scholars because I wanted to meet people with a similar passion for learning, but also to find a smaller community within Ohio State. Scholars has provided me with lifelong friends with different backgrounds that share similar a passion.
How has the Honors and Scholars Program contributed to your college experience?

Honors and Scholars has made my college experience one with fewer unknowns than I feel I would have had without this program. I was able to move-in early, explore campus and Columbus with new friends before classes even started. Scholars made making the transition from high school to college much easier.

What does #TogetherAsBuckeyes mean to you?

#TogetherAsBuckeyes to me means that we all work as Buckeyes, past, present, and future, to practice safe and healthy methods to slow the spread of Covid-19. We are working together to protect one another.

Are there any professors or staff who have helped you?

Jenny Kuzmic has helped me immensely through different injuries, commuting issues, group project issues, and just life problems in general.

What are your goals and plans for the future?

My goals and plans for the future are to apply to occupational therapy school and receive my occupational therapy doctorate. I would then like to move to a more predominately Spanish-speaking area to treat patients.
