Written by    Mar 21, 2018

One of the great things about attending Ohio State is the opportunity to discover causes that call you to action!

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

Ohio State Job Board

Written by    Feb 20, 2018

I may be a second-semester senior, but I’m still learning about new resources that Ohio State has to offer. For example, I recently learned about the job board on Ohio State’s Student Financial Aid website.
