Panelists will assist with presentation delivery and the overall hosting of the session from start to finish by distributing promo items and checking students in, contributing to the presentation and panel, and supporting the wrap-up process during each session.

Any undergraduate student, including graduating seniors, are encouraged to apply. This opportunity is ideal for someone who is looking for a fun way to earn a few extra hours of paid employment per week and is excited to help the next generation of Buckeyes get involved.
