Response to Atlanta-Area Shooting

March 17, 2021

In light of the shooting in the Atlanta-area late on March 16, Student Life’s Counseling and Consultation Service (CCS), Multicultural Center (MCC), Office of International Affairs (OIA) and Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) extend our support to those affected. These threatening and violent acts are tragic and disturbing. We acknowledge the impact on Ohio State students and recognize that direct or indirect exposure to such events can be traumatizing or result in many emotional reactions.
