Congratulations to our 2021 Stadium Scholarship Program Graduates! We are proud of you!

“SSP gave me my first home at OSU as an out-of-state student with such a welcoming and tight-knit community. My favorite program memory was the Fall Break trip to Philadelphia, I made a lot of new friends and strong connections and got to experience a new state and city. Upon graduation I will be moving to Seattle to work at Microsoft in Talent Acquisition!”
-2021 SSP Graduate Joe Henry


“After graduation, I plan on taking a gap year to become a certified lab scientist and work full time before applying to medical school. SSP holds a special place in my heart. Without SSP I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am thankful that I got to be part of a program with a strong community. My favorite memories of SSP were the fall break trips to New York City and Philadelphia and the late adventures to UDF and Wexner Wendy’s.”

“When I moved into SSP halfway through my first semester, I was not expecting to make many friends. Little did I know, I would find a wonderful community of support within SSP. My favorite memory of SSP were the Donuts & Dialog events that Chudi Fyle started. I really enjoyed hearing different perspectives on social and political issues (and the donuts were a nice bonus).

I now work for the Holden Arboretum in Kirtland, OH as a guest services representative and at Loraine County Metro Parks at the Miller Nature Preserve as their conservatory intern. I am working towards becoming an interpretive park ranger for the National Parks Service.”
