    Go for a visit on campus. That is one of the easiest ways to tell if you'll feel a connection to the college. Ohio State's campus is absolutely beautiful as well.

  • Dec-20-2016 I am a past student here

    I'm such a proud buckeye and I look back on my time there with nostalgia. Tips that I would give to prospective students: 1. Take advantage of the resources available to you at the university. You'll be amazed at the benefits that come with being a student there. For example, discounted tickets to theme parks, museums, bus pass, free legal help with qualified attorneys. 2. Don't be shy about joining student groups and organizations that pique your interest. Attend a lot of networking events and meet students from different departments. 3. Enjoy the journey!
