Experience OSU for a Day Hosts Needed!
Do you enjoy sharing your passion for Ohio State with others? Would you be willing to show high school students what it is like to be a Buckeye? The “Experience OSU for a Day” (EOFD) Program allows prospective students to get a feel for what college is really like. These students visit CFAES frequently, and we are in need of volunteers to show these students around campus when they come to visit.

EOFD Hosts volunteer to have prospective high school students shadow them from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. for 1-2 weekdays each semester. Hosting is very flexible and can be adjusted to fit your schedule. Hosts are encouraged to take their shadow(s) to see various classrooms, the Oval, the Union, a room in Norton House, and to eat lunch at Parker Dairy Store (lunch is free for the host and shadow). To sign up, simply fill out the form at http://go.osu.edu/eofd-hosts. If you have questions, feel free to contact Gary Klopfenstein at klopfenstein.40s@osu.edu.
