Ask a Senior: Was Ohio State the Right Place?

Written by    Jul 6, 2017

Every time my mom drove me home freshman year, she asked me, “Do you think Ohio State was the right place for you to go?” My reply was always something along the lines of, “I like it at Ohio State, but I don’t know if it means that I wouldn’t be happy anywhere else.” I graduated from Ohio State this May. After graduation, my mom asked […]
