I had an amazing time at Ohio State- I think attending an enormous university allowed me to develop social and leadership skills that I wouldn't have been able to build in a smaller program. More importantly, Ohio State's in-state tuition, along with many generous scholarships funded by donors, allowed me to patch together a series of 14 scholarships that funded my undergraduate education. I wouldn't have been able to attend college without these scholarships, and am thankful to this day for all the opportunities... Read More

My experience at Ohio State made me the ambitious, goal oriented and eager person I am to help other students looking to enter their undergraduate program. The Ohio Stat University main campus is daunting, the campus is huge, but the family is so welcoming. Once your major is decided your campus becomes smaller, your family becomes more intimate and you have access to any supports you may need. Ohio State will forever be a home to me and I will be forever grateful to my years spent there. Go bucks!
