My name is Maylene Renninger, and I am a fourth year from Grove City, Ohio. I am double majoring in Finance and Real Estate and minoring in Environment, Economy, Development, and Sustainability (EEDS) and Music, Media, and Enterprise (MME). I plan to attend law school to pursue my interest in real estate law and development. I am passionate about the value of education and experiential learning. I am specifically interested in ensuring that students have the resources needed to succeed in the real estate industry.
At Ohio State, I have had the pleasure to immerse myself in the realm of real estate. The initial draw was the idea of seeing tangible results. With my background in finance, I viewed real estate as the application of concepts to real-life developments. I have the honor to serve as President of the Fisher Real Estate Society and have previously served as the Vice President of Membership Development. This role enables me to plan meetings for undergraduate students and bring in professionals from the industry to get a glimpse of their day-to-day work environments, struggles, and opportunities. The Center for Real Estate hosts amazing events to meet professionals in the local community that are changing the way we look at real estate. This has allowed me to broaden my horizons on the possibilities available in this field. Over the past few years, I have been able to attend breakfast series panels, a luncheon detailing property management, and a dinner with a CEO of a real estate investment bank. The resources and opportunities have been influential in embarking on my career path.
Throughout my time at The Ohio State University, I have become heavily involved across campus. Some organizations that I have been involved with include Buckeye Leadership Fellows, International Affairs Scholars, Morrill Scholarship Program, Undergraduate Finance Association, National Residence Hall Honorary, Young Americans for Freedom, Block O Hockey Committee, Buckeye Broomball, Columbus Blue Jackets Club, and Board of Activities for Smith-Steeb. Additionally, I have the privilege to work as a Resident Advisor within the Residence on Tenth.
I would like to support the Center for Real Estate because it has provided students like myself with countless opportunities and should be celebrated and assisted in its further missions. The Ohio State Center for Real Estate at Fisher College of Business is dedicated to fostering excellence in real estate education, applied and academic research, and outreach through community and university partnerships. The Center’s main goal is to serve as a link between our students, faculty, alumni, and the various parts of the real estate industry, creating a vibrant community touching all aspects of real estate. The funds raised will be used to expand and sustain our programming and reach more students.
