Teacher, Spanish and Portuguese, College of Southern Nevada (Las Vegas).

Ohio State was an eye-opening experience for me for two reasons. First, I was raised in Nebraska and had moved to Worthington, OH, only as a senior. Within two years, my class size had gone from 100 students to over 7,000! Second, the variety of course offerings was a blessing and led me to study topics I never would have imagined taking.

My experience at Ohio State Newark was wonderful and filled with good times and hard studying, but nothing a student couldn’t handle. The professors were great and always ready to help when you asked for it. Newark, being smaller than the main campus, made it much easier to have more contact with your professor throughout the whole semester.

I also know that The Ohio State University readies its graduates for leadership in a dynamic, changing and "globalized" world.
