Camp Hetuck was established by the Office of Student Engagement and Department of Student Life in 2005 in an effort to identify and engage incoming students interested in getting a head start on their first year of college. The goal of Hetuck is to identify incoming Ohio State freshmen with previous leadership experience or interest in being a leader in college. Through this dynamic program, Campers will get a sneak peek at the people, places and services of The Ohio State University at Mansfield as well as the opportunity to interact with their peers. If you are a new student who is looking forward to getting a head-start on college and becoming involved as a student leader when you get here, Camp Hetuck is the place for you!

Applications will be accepted for new, first-year students entering Ohio State Mansfield for the first time in autumn semester 2020. Late applications can not be considered.

Applicants are welcome to attach an optional resume or list of high school extracurricular activities.
