​​Alumni Spotlight: Drew Enigk '12​

It is often said that graduate school is the most interesting level of education, and this probably becomes even truer when earning a Ph.D. involves exploring a vast forest and getting to follow around animals whose behavior almost mirrors that of humans.  Drew Enigk, a 2012 graduate of Ohio State and the University Honors Program, had the opportunity to spend two months over the summer observing chimpanzees in Uganda's Kibale National Park as he works on earning his Ph.D. from the University of New Mexico.

​​Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Yoho '10

What would you do if there were more than twenty-four hours in a day and you had a robot to clean your house?  Ohio State grad student Sarah Yoho would spend more time working in the lab…and for a good reason.  While she is working on earning her Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Science, she is helping research ways to improve hearing aid technology, as well as working on other projects.  Being part of such impactful research, it is understandable why she would cherish time spent in the lab.

​​Alumni Spotlight: Dan Linden '10

We have all heard the cliché: a new, unfamiliar experience- for example, starting out college- is a bit of a metaphorical roller coaster ride.  Before departure, there are nerves and excitement, and the journey itself is full of unexpected twists and turns, inevitable ups and downs.  For Dan Linden, 2010 graduate of The Ohio State University, the roller coaster metaphor takes on even deeper significance.​

Alumni Spotlight: Barbara Camens '79

Barbara Camens, like many OSU Honors alumni, exemplifies success in both her professional and personal life.  She calls her interview a "blast from the past," adding that she just visited campus for the first time in thirty years.  It is understandable that she has not had much spare time to return to Columbus; she went straight to the University of Pennsylvania's law school after graduating from Ohio State, and has since been a labor law attorney in Washington, D.C., where she has lived for the past thirty-two years.  Growing up in Youngstown, her father had been part of a steel worker uni

Alumni Spotlight: Arthur Fisk '78

Arthur Fisk is one of many interesting and successful people who got their start at The Ohio State University.  Having worked in a factory right out of high school, Fisk initially attended the Mansfield branch of Ohio State before transferring to the main campus in the late ‘70s.  He recalls that Ohio State was an open admissions school back then, and has grown much more competitive over the years.  Fisk, a psychology major, reminisces, “I had a great experience even though at that time I think there were probably 70,000 students on main campus.”

Alumni Spotlight: Oliver Glass '05

Not long ago, Ollie Glass started out as the typical Ohio State undergraduate student.  He admits to jumping into Mirror Lake for OSU vs. Michigan games- recalling that it was snowing at least one of those times- and rubbing the bust of Thompson for good luck before every exam.  A 2005 Honors graduate, he has accomplished a lot since his first day of freshman year, a day on which he recalls looking forward to the journey to come. Now, he is conducting research at Duke that could prove extremely beneficial to cancer patients.
