Hey everyone! I am a second-year double majoring in Psychology and Business, and I'm a Columbus native. Outside of the Student Ambassadors program, I am on the executive board for Out in Business, an LGBTQ group in the Fisher College of Business. I spend a lot of time working with the various LGBTQ groups here at Ohio State, as well as watching Netflix, eating at Sloopy's Diner, and hanging out with my family and friends here in the city. I look forward to meeting all of you this year!

Hey everyone! I am a third-year student double majoring in Psychology and Journalism from Cleveland, Ohio. I love arts and crafts, ceramics, and dancing (especially in my room when no one is watching). My goal is to be become a marriage counselor and a magazine columnist giving relationship advice. Most of all, I love just hanging out with friends, trying new things, and exploring Columbus. I’m in the process of making a self-esteem workshop for young girls in the City of Columbus. I have a passion for helping others and making sure everyone has a good quality of life. I’m looking forward to programming events and helping you make great memories in the Psych Department.

Hi there! My name is Kate and I am a second-year student double majoring in Psychology and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I am hoping to go to graduate school for counseling, with an emphasis in sexuality studies. I spent my childhood in Rhode Island, spent my teenage years in the Dallas, Texas area, and now I am loving my time here as a student in Columbus! I have a passion for travel, in fact in May, 2015 I am headed to Europe with the Psychology Department for a study abroad trip! But if I’m not traveling, you can probably find me curled up in a corner somewhere watching a documentary on Netflix. I can’t wait to meet you all!​

Hello everyone! I am a third-year double majoring in Psychology and Criminology from southeast Ohio where I literally have no neighbors (yes, I live that far out in the sticks and miss it every day). I also concurrently attend Columbus State where I am pursuing an associate’s degree in automotive technology. My goals include attending graduate school for forensic psychology and moving south (I think I should let someone else enjoy these lovely Ohio winters…). I love being busy and having a to-do list, but in my free time I like to feed my Netflix addiction, watch any baseball game, play volleyball, and spend time with my little yorkie poo named Bingley and my cat named Mister. I am looking forward to meeting you all and helping you learn to navigate OSU!

Hi everyone! I am a fourth-year Psychology major with a minor in Spanish. My time at Ohio State has been filled with forming great friendships, conducting research with amazing professors, and helping to organize the phenomenal Psychology Department events! In the future, I would love to go to graduate school for clinical psychology. But before graduating, I hope to run a marathon! I would describe myself as dedicated, positive, and easy-going. I really enjoy getting to know new people, traveling, going to OSU football games, and spending time with my family and friends.

Ariel Henley

Hi everyone! I'm a third-year Psychology major with minors in Leadership and Organizational Communication. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I hope to go to graduate school for Human Resources here at Ohio State and work for a company around Columbus so I can stay close to my family. In my free time I love to read, cook and watch HBO. I recently binge-watched every episode of Game of Thrones. If I could travel anywhere in the world, it would be Australia.

Hi! I'm a senior double majoring in Psychology and Women's Studies here at THE Ohio State University. Outside of classes and research, I'm the president for Buckeye Campaign Against Suicide, as well as an avid rock climber, runner, and lover of all four-legged creatures (especially corgis!). When I graduate, I plan on getting a degree in Clinical Psychology so I can help people live a happier and healthier life.

Katie Hudson

Hello! I am second-year Psychology major with a minor in Neuroscience from Cincinnati, Ohio. I hope to attend grad school in the future to conduct research in psychology, maybe at a school in Chicago - my favorite city! When I'm not in class or sporting my red polo, you can find me singing with Scarlet and Grace Notes, the premier all-female a cappella group on campus, or bundled up in my Gryffindor robes watching Harry Potter. I also love playing the piano, reading, and listening to music (I've accidentally ignored many friends around campus while jamming out to the Black Keys). Flag me down if you see me around campus, I'm always open to grabbing a few scoops of ice cream or a nice cup of coffee with new people!

Hey! I am a third year Psychology major from Brunswick, Ohio. I am a big Browns, Indians, and, of course, Buckeyes fan and love going to as many games a year as I can. When I’m not in class or working with my fellow Psychology Student Ambassadors, I am either working as a research assistant in the Social Psychology Lab, or I am working out at the RPAC. I also enjoy spending the weekends relaxing with friends or visiting family. I plan on attending a graduate program in Clinical Psychology and working with children and adolescents in the future.
