Dear future college student –
Deciding which college to go to is one of the more difficult decisions you will make during your young adult years. Many people look at college in different ways, but I am certainly glad I chose The Ohio State University as the college I would attend.

My name is Melanie Fuhrmann. I am a current student at Ohio State majoring in community leadership. As a triplet, my decision of colleges was slightly more difficult than others; I had to decide if I wanted to leave my brothers or go where I knew I should go.
Ohio State isn’t just another college, it is a family. You will come to know that there are Buckeyes all over the world and they will support you in everything you do. I went on a service trip called BUCK-I-SERV and had the opportunity to meet alumni all the way in Louisiana that wanted to hear all about my college experiences and help any way they could.
Ohio State will never disappoint you if you decide to attend. It is a huge community, comprised of people who want to help you. You will always be a Buckeye, and will always have that connection with your Buckeye community throughout your life.
The deadline to apply for admission to the Columbus campus of Ohio State is February 1, 2018 – just three weeks from today! Don’t delay in completing your application.

As I approach my second semester at Ohio State and reflect upon my first, I realize how much I love my new school, new city and new friends. Being a student in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) has allotted me so many amazing opportunities.
Within my first semester, I have been able to study abroad in Nicaragua, attend a leadership conference in Kansas City and meet amazing faculty and students. The atmosphere of the Ohio State University is phenomenal; no matter what you find interesting, you can find it at Ohio State. My personal experience has consisted of Undergraduate Student Government, broomball, and the Mount Leadership Society.
I urge you to apply to Ohio State before the upcoming deadline (February 1, 2018 – 4 weeks from today)! Choosing to become a Buckeye has made a huge impact on my life already, and I am excited to see what’s next in my Ohio State story. CFAES works hard to advocate for its students and provides endless opportunities to each student it serves.
I hope that during the hustle and bustle of senior pictures, graduation plans and endless deadlines, you remember to apply to The Ohio State University. It was the best decision I ever made, and I hope you make it too!
