Most of the Scholars programs offer annual trips, and it makes sense that PSL would go to DC. In many ways, the trip was a professional one.

Written by    Apr 11, 2017

Stop! Don’t scroll past this! I won’t tell you about different dining plans, I promise! So I know that this is the time all you soon-to-be-freshman babies are choosing a college, and I would like to make sure that I get all the good freshman babies.

Why Ohio State Engineering?

Written by    Mar 21, 2017

Since March is a pretty pivotal month for college decisions, I really want to focus on potential incoming engineers.

BuckeyeThon 2017

Written by    Feb 16, 2017

BuckeyeThon 2017 was an absolute success! I had zero idea what to expect as I’d never participated before, but overall I’m proud and humbled by the Ohio State community’s ability to rally together to raise money for kids with cancer. We raised over $1.5 MILLION For the Kids!

Moneythink OSU

Written by    Feb 16, 2017
