Taryn Cailene Lowes is part of 16xOSU, an organization of student leaders committed to transforming lives and shaping a better world through entrepreneurial action. 16xOSU is open to all students as a social entrepreneurship club.
What is the community like?
The members of 16xOSU aren’t people you see once a month and only say hello. They are family. We see each other every week and are always talking about what we are doing — not just in school, but also in life. We encourage each other and are always pushing each other to reach our highest potential.
What is your best memory?

I was traveling with people I had only known for a few weeks and was a little nervous. It ended up being an amazing experience, and I made some of my best friends, who I have been able to make many more memories with.
