goBuckeye Day at ODI

goBuckeye Day 2015

Deciding which university to attend is a decision that can have profound consequences. Although no school is perfect for everyone, students admitted to The Ohio State University who participated in GoBuckeye Day were shown hundreds of reasons why Ohio State could be the university for them. As students considered the next step in their academic journey, once they choose Ohio State, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion will be there for them for the next four years.

During the presentation, students were informed of all the support that ODI provides: co-curricular services such as tutoring, advising, mentoring and other programmatic services; research opportunities and funds; education abroad experiences; leadership development programming; and post-baccalaureate preparation.

After GoBuckeye Day ended, all of the 95 admitted Young Scholars came together with ODI staff and current Scholars at Ohio State. Discussions with students and parents were held, and there was a commitment letter ceremony for the YSP students who are planning to attend Ohio State fall semester. The evening ended with a reception for all incoming ODI scholars.

Welcome, ODI Scholars, to The Ohio State University and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion!


GoBuckeye Day is Ohio State’s big event for admitted students, who may still be deciding on a college. Students (and their families) hear about programming to help them engage on campus, experience campus-area dining, and learn what to expect academically. Students and their families can customize the event by registering for up to three Talks and Tours sessions.
