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.
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.
Buckeye Leadership Fellows is excited to welcome the newest addition to the cohort, the Class of 2020. The new members will be formally participating in Buckeye Leadership Fellows for the 2018 and 2019 academic years.
Congratulations to Bryan Barrett, who won the honor of being the Ohio State 2017 Homecoming King at the Ohio State vs. Maryland homecoming game!
