“My experience as a student in the School was absolutely memorable.  I developed some great friendships, had amazing instructors, and became well equipped to succeed as a Healthcare Professional.  Shorty after graduating I looked for ways to give back and to remain connected to OSU and to HRS.  I found the HRS Alumni Society and have been an active member and officer ever since.”

“I enjoy networking with others and joining the HRS Alumni Board has been an excellent way to do so. Giving back to the School is a wonderful way to pay back what was given to me.”

“I joined the HRS Alumni Board because it provided an opportunity to get involved with the School and make a difference in other’s lives as well as my own. A great feeling comes from assisting with the bigger picture of student/alumni relationships and the growth of our allied medical profession community.”

“As a student I could recall counting down the days to graduation in anticipation of my entrance to the “Real World.”  The day came, I grabbed my diploma and road off into my future.  Once I got to my destination I realized there was a void which existed.  I missed walking across campus and soaking up the Buckeye Spirit on a daily basis.  I also felt a debt of gratitude to this organization that had given me so much.  During my time on campus I was so focused on getting out, I didn’t pay attention to the multiple benefits this great organization was providing me.  One day the answer came in the form of a call from a former classmate.  He contacted me about a the HRS Alumni Society who was looking for more assistance on the board.  I saw this as the perfect opportunity to soak up more of this Buckeye Spirit and begin paying my debt of gratitude back to this great university.  This was nearly 4 years ago, and unlike my first 4 year experience at OSU, I am no longer counting down my days.”

“As a new alumnus of the school, I felt that it was important to continue a connection to and show my appreciation for the School and my program.”

“I joined the board as a way to “give back” to the school that gave me so much.”
