Resident Spotlight

Noah Rosenblatt

"My name is Noah Rosenblatt and I am studying business within the HTC. I am especially interested in entrepreneurship. I have always been fascinated with start-ups an management. My dream career is to own a commercial space exploration company. I chose to come to Ohio University because I knew here I could stand out among the crowd. This school provides me a myriad of opportunities, many of which I have at least tried.

Currently I am working with my partner and co-founder Ryan Shultz on our start up company called InternEgg. It is a consulting company specializing in student to business internship consultation. We provide a start to finish consultation service for a low price and a guarantee an internship offer. Currently we are working out kinks of our business but we have been progressing quickly and gaining growth. We hope to be on a variety of campuses by the time we graduate."

I enjoy singing, dancing, running, watching movies, doing yoga, and eating. My door is usually open (Read 233) so feel free to stop by and get to know me! Oh, and let me know what programming you would like in the RJSC this semester by coming to Hall Council meetings! Thanks!"
