Favorite part of working in the Ohio Bobcat Club

My favorite part of working in the Ohio Bobcat Club is knowing the impact we’re making on the lives of the OHIO Student-Athletes and helping to connect alumni back to the university they love.

Favorite Ohio Athletics sports memory

Beating Miami (OH) to wrap up the regular season of Men’s Basketball! That was also the first day of working in the Rohr Room without the help of the previous Graduate Assistants, so it was a memorable day all-around.

Favorite restaurant in town

Jackie O’s! I love everything about their food. My go to items are the Fried Cheese Curds w/ a side of ranch and the Jalapeno Chomolungma Burger w/ a side of Fries. The Melt My Pesto sandwich is also a favorite.
