We are committed to providing all students with optimal opportunities for academic and social success. We offer programs to appeal to unique and varied groups while working towards an all-embracing, inclusive campus.

This is a supportive community where students can comfortably join in or confidently stand out! Every student, staff and faculty member has something to contribute – every Buckeye counts!
