“As an Academy student, you truly become an Ohio State student. You can immerse yourself in a place where learning is not only expected, but encouraged. The great thing is that we have advisors who will always be there for us every step of the way. You are never alone as an Academy student.”

“If I had to describe my experiences in the OSU Academy in one word, it would be transformational. Through this experience I have transformed as a student and as a person. And my best experiences in the OSU Academy are the relationships I have made with my instructors, who helped me so much in decision making and planning for my future.”
