Roads Scholars Tour confident campus leader after finding the support she needed to find herself. It started when an academic advisor helped Ashley determine that the psychology major was the perfect fit for her personality. Next, a professor mentored her by helping her to dive into the major and research in the field. Moore was also encouraged to use her experience to become an academic peer coach—a role in which she now mentors others. She also shared her excitement about being chosen as a Sesquicentennial Scholar, “The scholarship promotes values that I personally strive toward such as philanthropy, leadership and engagement.” Assistant Professor of Physics Michael Stamatikos, PhD, deftly wove pop culture references and jokes into his comments about STEM education and its workforce, humankind’s place in the universe(s), the work being done at the SciDome and how Ohio State is fulfilling the recommendation of the founding fathers. “Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers shared the opinion that an educated electorate is needed for a properly functioning government. Ohio State’s motto ‘Disciplina in civitatem: education for citizenship’ means we are constantly working to provide that educated electorate.” Attendees also enjoyed music from the HeiseyWind Ensemble, time with Ohio State icons Brutus Buckeye and DrumMajor Konner Barr and camaraderie with fellow Buckeyes.
