New Faces in the OSS- Welcome Angela Philmus

Angela stands in front of the Women's Building with a smile on her face.

We have a whole lot of new staff members in the OSS office this fall term! For the next few weeks look for a short bio for all of our amazing new people. First on the docket is Angela Philmus.

Angela has a undergraduate degree in Human Resources Management and fondly remembers many of her Psychology classes as an undergraduate. She has a graduate degree in College Student Services from OSU and has previously worked in the College of Pharmacy.

In her spare time she enjoys reading fantasy books, hiking, playing cozy video games and board games, baking cookies, and hanging out with my family/dogs. One of her favorite quotes is “We’re capable of the most incredible change. We can evolve while still staying true to who we are. We can honor who we’ve been and choose who we want to be next. Now’s your chance.”  –The Thirteenth Doctor
