She looks forward to increasing her involvement on campus in the future with initiation into the Order of the Omega, a leadership honor society for members of the Greek community and soon hopes to see an article she wrote published in magazine Seventeen.

He is from Portland and graduated from Westview High School. Roy has been on the dean’s list and honor roll while at OSU. His extracurricular activities include serving as an undergraduate teaching assistant for the anatomy and physiology lab, working at the student learning center in the Honors College and volunteering with the OSU blood drive, where he was elected to the position of director of promotions and publicity.

One of the most influential service activities he has been involved with is volunteering with IMPACT for Life, a program that serves individuals with disabilities. In her recommendation letter, the coordinator for that program writes, “I can confidently say that Roy is one of the most dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers our program has had. He brings boundless energy to his role working with IMPACT participants and helps them become more confident, independent and motivated to engage in activities.”

Roy is applying to medical school with the goal of becoming a doctor. He realized early on that this was going to be the career he was going to dedicate his life toward and it fits his desire for serving others.
