Katrina Oselinsky named student marshal for the College of the Liberal Arts

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Katrina Oselinsky will serve as the student marshal for the College of the Liberal Arts at Penn State’s fall 2016 commencement. Oselinsky will graduate from Penn State with a degree in psychology with a business option. She is the daughter of David and Marcia Oselinsky, of Port Matilda, Pennsylvania.

As college marshal, Oselinsky will represent all students graduating from the College of the Liberal Arts at commencement ceremonies on Saturday, Dec. 17, in the Bryce Jordan Center. She will participate in the academic processional representing her classmates along with the faculty marshal, Sam Hunter, associate professor of industrial and organizational psychology.

As a student, Oselinsky was a lab coordinator for the Leadership and Innovation Lab run by Hunter. In addition, she served as a research assistant for the Schreyer Honors College Leadership Assessment Center, a teaching assistant for sociology and psychology courses, and an exam proctor for statistics courses.

Oselinsky was a member of Pi Beta Phi fraternity for women, where she was awarded the Outstanding Sister Award for her academic achievement. She spent much of her time working at Fitology 542, an off-campus gym at which she was a fitness instructor. She is the recipient of the President’s Freshman Award, President Sparks Award, and Evan Pugh Scholar Award. Upon graduation, Oselinsky has accepted a full-time job in Chicago with Les Mills United States, an international health, wellness, and fitness company, where she will act as an assessment coordinator for the corporation.

“I would like to thank my professors for inspiring me to find and follow my passions. Without their confidence in me and their guiding hands throughout my college career, I would not have had the bravery to pursue my own path for the future,” said Oselinsky. “The lessons they taught me have extended far beyond the classroom and will remain with me as I begin this next chapter of my life. Thank you to all my professors for their wisdom; it has not fallen on deaf ears.”
