Which of your family members are Bobcats?
My mother, Jeannette Fitzwater; her brother, Bob Rudy; and her sister, Pam Rudy all attended [Ohio University]. My uncle then met his wife, Amy Rudy at Ohio University. Their daughter, Alison Sweitzer, and her husband, Jason Sweitzer, also attended. My brother, Adam Fitzwater, recently graduated from Ohio University in May 2013.
What made you decide to attend OHIO?
While I have always known about Ohio University, I originally had concerns about attending. I wanted to be original and go to a different school. When I visited the campus though, I fell in love. Ohio University truly has the most beautiful campus I have ever seen. Also, the accounting program is one of the best I have seen. All of the students were extremely friendly and loved not only Ohio University but also Athens. It felt like home. I had no choice but to join the Bobcat clan.
What activities are you involved in?
I am the Vice President of Community Service for Delta Sigma Pi, a professional business fraternity on campus. I am the Vice President of Candidate Education for Beta Alpha Psi, the honorary accounting fraternity. I am also involved in the Select Leadership Development Program, which is part of the College of Business.
What is something you are excited to do during your time at OHIO?
I am really excited to "borrow" an Ohio University brick my senior year. It is an important tradition that I cannot wait to participate in. I want to bring Athens home with me!
What has been your favorite experience at Ohio University so far?
Homecoming was favorite Ohio University experience so far. I loved watching the parade and screaming at the football game. A lot of my Bobcat family members came down so it was fun to connect with them, as well as their friends from college who were in town. It was truly a weekend of fun with friends and family.
