“I have really enjoyed doing all three of my co-op rotations so far with the Ford Motor Co. I’ve worked in quality, the weld line, and aluminum machining, all at their Sharonville transmission plant. I am extremely excited for my fourth rotation this fall, where I will be helping out in the plant's 3D print lab— the only one of its kind in all of Ford!”
“Being from a suburb, the city lifestyle was a big change for me. Every weekend, I made it my mission to explore a new part of the city. I love trying new restaurants at the Banks and going to Cincinnati Reds games whenever I can! The city is so lively, there is always something new to do and try out.”
“Cincinnati has a little bit of everything, but my favorite thing to do is visit Findlay Market! Being from Cleveland, it reminds me of West Side Market, so every time I visit I get a little bit of home. It's a great way to get some fresh products and support local businesses!”
