Hello this is Tony Gomes the 506th Scholarship recipient,

I just wanted to say hello to you all and let you know how things are going down here at OSU! This term I am taking five classes, I have never taken so many at one time but I enjoy them! I have German 512 (standard German class) German 342- Literature, German 332 Culture, Math 95, and Spanish 101. So much translating! I am working my way up to calculus so I can get on with my other Construction Engineering classes! (I am in the Library right now thought I would take a break!)

But everything is going good, making a little money on the side every now and then working for Public Safety on Campus. There are also lots of pretty girls down here - enough to drive a guy crazy! I just wanted to say hello to you all and thank you again so much for the scholarship!!!

Talk to you again soon!

Tony Gomes
