Meet an SMA: Owen McCloskey ’16

The Thrill spotlights a Sexual Misconduct Advisor regularly to raise awareness about the resources available to survivors of sexual assault. Remember, the SMAs are subordinate to the Counseling Center, so anything you tell them is kept confidential. They also have an anonymous hotline you can call if you need assistance: 740-358-1544. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.Today, we’re featuring Owen McCloskey, a junior from Reynoldsburg, Ohio.


Cookie pie or giant cookie?

If it’s warm and soft, possibly gooey, it’s definitely the giant cookie.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?

Looking back, anything home cooked is so cherished now that I either have to make my own food or frequent Peirce. My family, specifically, my mom make a mean Thanksgiving dinner. We have the typical array of food just like any Thanksgiving celebration, but my mom last year made this chili from her childhood, and combine that with some homemade buckeyes and pie for dessert, and I’ve got the best meal I’ve ever had.

What’s the last good book you read?

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, you’re never too old to take it back to a classic.

Why do you love your hometown?

The location is great, I get all of the feel of a somewhat big city mixed with the nature Ohio has to offer just a short drive away, but more importantly Reynoldsburg holds the prestigious title “The Birthplace of the Tomato”, who wouldn’t love their hometown for that?

What’s your favorite place to nap on campus?

Definitely my bed, no place tops that.

What movie have you watched most frequently? 

It has to be either The Dark Knight or Dark Knight Rises due to the sheer number of times they have been on television.

Why did you become an SMA?

Throughout my life, I’ve had many a friend and role model whom ingrained in me a certain train of thought. This is that thought put into action, as I want to do my part in raising awareness and aiding in prevention.
