Hey everyone! My name is Jenna, one of the secretaries for YM at OSU. I’m currently in my final year at OSU, majoring in biology, and minoring in chemistry with a GIS certificate. Outside of class, I also contribute to the research in Professor Jamon Van Den Hoek’s Conflict Ecology Lab , along with fellow officers Kenna and Annabelle.
