Here is a spring 2016 update from Alyssa:

Thank you all so much! The support from the club over the last year and a half has been amazing. I can’t thank you all enough for the generous scholarships you’ve given me to help achieve my dream of graduating from Ohio State. My summer abroad and final fall semester is all that sets me apart from graduating from the best school in the land. And it’s all thanks to best alumni club in the land, The Ohio State University Alumni Club of Southwest Florida! I hope to keep the club updated as I will be studying in Peru this summer to fulfill my immersion requirement for my Spanish degree. I will be graduating this December with two degrees: Strategic Communications and Latin American Literatures and Cultures. I can not wait! Go Bucks!
