Two Biomedical Engineering Seniors Dot the 'i'

The OSU’s marching band’s Script Ohio performance with the dotting of the “I” is considered a time honored tradition for any OSU marching band member.  This year the Department of Biomedical Engineering is proud to congratulate George Hoeferlin and Mitch Kahn, for being selected to dot the ‘i’ this season during the marching band performance at the Ohio State football half-time show.

George Hoeferlin dotted the “i” as the Buckeyes took on Penn State on Saturday, October 28, 2017. “Dotting the “i” is one of the best moments of this point in my life,” Hoeferlin said.

George Hoeferlin, BME seniorHoeferlin is a senior, biomedical engineer from Canfield, Ohio.  He has always beeninterested in the engineering discipline. He first expressed interest in biomedical engineering and the medical field after taking his first anatomy and physiology classes in high school. Hoeferlin learned in pursuing a biomedical engineering degree he could contribute to somethingthat could directly affect the lives of people in need.  In the future, he would like to be involved with research and development and is currently applying to graduate schools to obtain his master’s degree.




Mitch Kahn, a senior biomedical engineering student from Sylvania, 

Mitch Kahn, BME seniorOhio, will graduate in Spring, 2018. Kahn dotted the “i” in the final home game of the 2017 season against Illinois on November 18. Kahn has always been interested in sports and also enjoys the idea of designing prosthetic or orthopedic products used for injury repair or prevention of professional athletes. When selecting his major based on his interests, he chose biomedical engineering as the best fit. “All I’ve ever wanted to do since I was about ten years old was dot the ‘I’ and I really do not have my next goal lined up quite yet,” says Kahn. After graduation, Kahn would like to find a job related to sports injury prevention and rehab. He would also like to work in a hospital designing medical devices.

Congratulations Mitch and George on such an outstanding accomplishment.    Go Bucks!
