Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute, or Ohio State ATI, functions as a regional campus, technical school, and community college all in one. Operating out of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences’ Wooster Campus, Ohio State ATI offers programs in agriculture, horticulture, environmental sciences, business, and engineering technology. ATI can confer Associates of Applied Science, but bachelor’s degrees can be started at Ohio State ATI to be completed at any Ohio State University campus. They also offer “core” general education courses, which can be transferred to any college in Ohio. This open-admissions campus is home to a Beef Facility, Dairy Facility, Equine Center, Land Laboratory, Swine Facility, and the Grace L. Drake Agricultural Laboratory.
The Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute is the most helpful and welcoming college that I have ever dealt with. SOAR, the orientation program, is probably the most reassuring and helpful program that I have experienced. The faculty members of the school are always very knowledgeable in their answers and know exactly what they are talking about or who to directly refer you to when trying to come up with an answer.

The Agricultural Technical Institute is a school that one should be proud to attend. The experience, relationships, and knowledge that you gather here does not compare to anywhere else. The atmosphere is so different than any other school because it is in a rural area.
