Lewis Enrolled in Young Alumni Academy

Erica Lewis, class of 2015 with a B.S. in Animal Sciences and a minor in Disability Studies, enrolled in the University Young Alumni Academy. The Young Alumni Academy is a professional and personal development program for young Ohio State University alumni in the central Ohio area. 

The academy is designed to empower young Buckeyes and provide them with the skills they need to be successful, in the workplace and in life. Throughout the 10–month program, participants have the opportunity to hear from experts and community leaders about a variety of topics, including things like salary negotiation, work–life balance and personal branding. It is a cohort–based program and fosters relationships between young professionals within the Ohio State community. In addition, participants will be matched with an alumnus mentor based on similar experiences or goals. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be invited to join an emeriti group to stay connected with The Ohio State University Alumni Association.

Erica is one of 42 young Ohio State Alumni enrolled in the program. She is an Assistant Director at PBJ Connections.

Applications for the 2020-2021 cohort will be available in June 2020. For more information, click here.
