Allie Fridstein

Hey! I'm a third year Psychology major, German minor from Agoura Hills, CA. I love basketball (go Lakers!), going to the movies, painting, watching reruns of Friends and Scrubs, and doing pretty much anything active. If I had a celebrity tea party, Stephen Colbert and Tina Fey would be the first two people on the invite list. A quirky habit of mine is quoting pop culture references for almost every situation that can possibly come up.

Hi everyone! I am second year Psychology major with a minor in Spanish from Hilliard, Ohio. My long-term goal for the future is to become a child clinical psychologist. My short-term goal is to have a conversation with Aaron Craft before I graduate! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends, being involved with Catholic groups around campus, and volunteering at my parish’s high school youth group!

Hello! I am a third year Psychology major from Uhrichsville, OH. I am a returning Psychology Ambassador. I work a part-time job in carpentry and I volunteer for Twin Valley Behavioral Healthcare. I like to read, write, play video games and go to the gym (reading is probably my most favorite thing to do). If I could invite a famous person to my party it would definitely be Katy Perry. My future career plans are to attend graduate school here at OSU for School Counseling. I hope to one day work in a high school as a School Counselor.

Hey! I am a second year Psychology major with a Human Development and Family Sciences minor. I am from Columbus, OH. In my spare time I love to play volleyball, to disc golf, to watch movies, and to read. If I could go anywhere on vacation it would be to Australia or Italy. If I could invite any two people to my party it would be Steve Carell and Taylor Lautner.

I am a third year Psychology major with a minor in Spanish from Pittsburgh, PA. I would describe myself as hard working, personable, and determined.

Hi! I am a sophmore double majoring in Pyschology and Spanish from Chicago, Illinois. I would describe myself as motivated, positive, and very energetic! I love spending time with my family and friends, as well as cheering on my two favorite teams: The Buckeyes and The Packers. If I could travel to any one place I would love go to Italy to experience the culture and food and to explore Rome.


Andrew Luft

Hello!  I am a third year from Powell, Ohio, double majoring in Psychology and English.  I would describe myself as analytic, carefree, and an old-soul.  I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, taking road trips, and having Harry Potter movie marathons. If I could invite two famous people to my party they would be Paul McCartney and U.S. Representative John Lewis. A goal I would like to achieve in my lifetime is to write and publish a book.

Hey everyone! I’m a second year Psychology major minoring in Spanish from Stow, OH. I would describe myself as hardworking, passionate, and goofy! I like to coach softball for my little sister’s team in the summer and I love Maroon 5, ABC’s The Bachelor, and spending time with family and friends! My goals in life are to make a difference in the lives of others and to travel to Barcelona, Spain!

Hello everyone!  I am currently a fourth year Psychology major with a premedical focus. When I have time away from studying, I enjoy playing piano, cooking, and any type of outdoor activity. Within the next ten years of my life, I hope to begin practicing as either a neurologist or psychiatrist. Another dream of mine is to hike all 2,150 miles of the Appalachian Trail!

Hi! I'm a fifth year double Psychology and Sexuality Studies major from New Hampshire. In my spare time I love to run, lift weights, cook, and watch TV shows on Netflix. I am really into politics and follow it like it is a soap opera. I also love traveling and this past summer I went on the Psychology and Culture in Europe trip to London and Paris. After I graduate, I plan on going into clinical psychology and working with adolescents. I really love the Psychology Department here and all things OSU-GO BUCKS!

Hello!  I am a fourth year Honors student studying Psychology and Neuroscience.  My interests on campus include being a member of the Boo Radley Society (Random Acts of Kindness Club!), spending time with friends, and going to the RPAC.  My fun facts are that I have played traditional Irish Music for about ten years, and I love to perform aerial arts and partner acrobatics.


Katie Slaven

Hi! I am a third year Psychology major from Poland, OH. I love to read, watch movies, and travel! I've been to Australia and Fiji and I went to London and Paris with the psychology department in May! In my spare time I like to reread the Harry Potter books and watch Doctor Who and Dexter for hours on end. I love being a psychology major because I get to learn how to help people, and I can't wait to become a clinical psychologist. I am a peer mentor in the department, and I love to help freshmen find their place at OSU! :)
