6 Reasons to Choose The Ohio State University at Newark

So you are thinking about being a Buckeye? Finding the best school to suit your educational goals and needs is a huge commitment. You have done the leg work and toured, researched and applied to a few or dozens of universities across the state and maybe even the country. Now that you’ve found yourself considering Ohio State, here are the top six reasons you should become a Buckeye!

  1. Get started in research even as a freshman

“I chose Ohio State Newark because we have the opportunity as undergrads to participate in real research. Not a lot of colleges allow students to conduct research early on. The first year I was able to participate in research studies, and now I am getting exposure to the process of doing my own research. I am doing all the paperwork and coming up with research ideas. Ohio State Newark has given me a gateway to be published as an undergrad and being a researcher.”

-Zachary Sparks, Psychology major, Class of 2021

  1. Broaden Your Horizons with Education Abroad

“Ohio State offers a wide array of study abroad opportunities that many college students do not. Studying abroad allowed me to learn about another culture and see the world with my fellow classmates. Through my study aboard experience to Liverpool, I made lasting memories and friendships.”

-Conner Moore, English major, Class of 2019

  1. You’re More Than Just a Face in the Crowd

“I knew from the beginning I wanted to attend a college with smaller class sizes. Ohio State Newark’s class sizes allowed me to actually be able to engage in class and get more out of the lectures. The class sizes allow us to do more discussions, and I get to talk and get to know my fellow classmates better. I am able to engage with my professor on a one-on-one basis and get the necessary hands-on help I need.”

-Megan Moody, English major, Class of 2021

  1. Build a Strong Foundation

“Ohio State Newark was the best college choice for me because of the campus environment. It had a very family friendly environment from students to staff; it shows that this is more than just a college campus. Personally, I didn’t choose this option to save money or due to grades but to get the best head start possible to my academic success. When the time came to transition to Columbus to complete my degree, there were many resources available to make the transition to Columbus as easy as possible.”

  1. Learn from World-Class Teaching Minds

“The faculty at Ohio State Newark led me to become an English major. Coming into college, I was undecided on what I wanted to do; it was through seeing the passion that my professors had for their respective fields that I felt inspired. The faculty provided me opportunities to explore fields from social media, marketing, business writing, and internships in the community. Without the faculty at Ohio State Newark, I would not be as prepared to adventure out into the work force because the faculty believed in my potential success to grow as a professional and person.”

-Lauren Toney, English major, Class of 2019

  1. Receive all the benefits of Ohio State – even football tickets

“Being a Buckeye fan and a sports fan in general, a good reason to choose Ohio State Newark is because you still have access to purchasing season tickets to football games! Not only can we purchase football tickets, but we can also buy tickets to any sporting event at an affordable price for pretty great seats.”

-Judson Lewis, Business major, Class of 2020
