Staff Appreciation Week is an annual celebration of Ohio State staff members to recognize their contributions to the university. Throughout the week of July 24-30, 2016, several campus-wide events and activities are planned for the thousands of Ohio State staff members to thank them for their dedication to advancing the university’s mission.
Many Staff Appreciation Week events and activities are planned, including exclusive tours of university landmarks like Ohio Stadium, special promotions, discounts and ticket offers for local sporting events, and other special offerings for Ohio State staff.

Service Testing and Research Laboratory (STAR lab) is a research oriented inorganic chemical analysis lab based in Williams Hall on the OARDC campus in Wooster; however, services are available to all OSU researchers and associates.
STAR Lab follows standard or generally accepted chemical analysis procedures and techniques to analyze sample materials including soils, plant tissues, animal tissue, composts, and water samples (analysis for other types of samples can be arranged as well). The main focus is on the elemental analysis of samples for mineral and nutrient content.
