The Ohio State University

Founded in 1870 as the state's land-grant institution, The Ohio State University consistently ranks among our nation's top public research universities, integrating teaching and learning with research and community service. A research powerhouse with global reach, Ohio State has one of the nation's largest single-campus enrollments. Its 5,000 faculty members offer 12,000 courses in 167 majors through 18 colleges. One university with multiple locations throughout Ohio — main campus in Columbus; regional campuses in Lima, Mansfield, Marion, and Newark; and the Agricultural Technical Institute and Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center in Wooster — Ohio State is home to the best and the brightest. U.S News & World Report ranks Ohio State 19th among the nation's public universities. Ohio State's 2007 first-year class of some 6,000 students (Columbus campus) is the most academically prepared in history, with an average ACT score of 27. The National Science Foundation places Ohio State seventh nationally among public research universities based on the amount of its research expenditures, which now stand at some $720 million annually. The Washington Monthly college rankings, which evaluate contributions to society based on factors of social mobility, cutting-edge research, and service to the country by their graduates, place Ohio State 12th in the nation and 10th among public universities. Attending a university with 138 years of history gives our graduates-some 400,000 worldwide-a sense of pride, tradition, and a lifelong connection to Ohio State.
