Major: University Exploratory Studies Program

Peer Mentor: Hannah You

Faculty Mentor: Dr. Clint Epps


My name is Izzy Mason I was born in Dallas, Texas but grew up in Seattle, WA. I chose to come to OSU because of the great opportunities with research and the many majors to choose from. I also fell in love with the campus on my first visit. I’m currently in the University Exploratory Studies Program, which means I don’t have a major at this time. I hope that my research will be interactive and will guide me towards a certain major or career path. Currently I don’t know what I want to do with my life, but I want to either work with/study animals and their behaviors or study climate change and how humans are affecting the atmosphere. What I like most about OSU is the people and friends I have made here and the pride everyone has for this school.
