This is a creative space updated occassionally with program news as well as short reflection posts by the Fellows. Posts will reflect on current activities and events happening in the Buckeye Leadership Fellows Program.
Growth, perspective and experiential learning!
The Buckeye Leadership Fellows are happy to welcome four new additions to our Advisory Board. Program Director and Assistant Director, Rob Jech and Beth Johnson, are currently traveling in Washington D.C. with nine lucky Fellows to meet some of the new Advisory Board members, workshop new ideas for the program, and provide their unique perspective about their time in BLF. Here’s a little more about each of our wonderful new Advisory Board members:
Juan Tramontin, member of BLF ’20 majoring in Logistics Management and minoring in Engineering and Italian is taking his passion for sustainability to the next level.
Olivia Adkins, member of BLF ’19 majoring in Public Management, Leadership and Policy, is spending this semester immersing herself in a culture that is a long way from the Ohio State University campus- in Prague!
The Buckeye Leadership Fellows ’18 partnered with Smart Columbus in a “Drive less, drive electric” challenge to answer the question: What behavioral changes must occur to support new technologies and transit options and what are the most effective and timely strategies for influencing these behaviors?
The first Classical Music Rave in North America occurred at Trism last week, and the event was put on by BLF Class of 19’s very own Clara Davison and her student organization, CELLOHIO. The rave, known as ‘Party Arty’, was DJed by Mr. Van Walsh who traveled all the way from Amsterdam. It also consisted of performances by CELLOHIO, Sweet Tooth and Xioma. Mr. Van Walsh takes classical music and transforms it in arty settings, allowing for a relaxed structure in comparison to a traditional classical music concert. The rave projects classical music infused with dance music and EDM for all to enjoy. Mr. Van Walsh has been arranging raves internationally since 2013 in locations including Australia, Brazil, Belgium and Turkey with audiences of up to 1,500.
The Buckeye Leadership Fellows Class of ’18 are finishing out their last semester in the cohort strong. On October 30th-31st, the cohort members traveled to New York City, NY to present their results for their final leadership challenge- for Meredith Publishing.
