Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Statement Regarding Recent Buckeye Alert


At 1:38 AM on Sunday, August 25, 2019, a Buckeye Alert was issued warning “Active attacker reported on the OSU Columbus Campus.” At 2:38 AM a follow-up message indicated “no ongoing threat.” While these alerts are necessary to keep our community safe, CCS acknowledges the emotional impact students may experience as a result. 

CCS is offering additional times for students to drop-in and speak with a counselor today, Monday, August 26 from 9 AM to 11 AM in Room 211 and from 4 PM to 6 PM in Room 220 at the Younkin Success Center. 

If you are in distress at any time, please know we are here to help. Students may contact CCS at any time by calling 614-292-5766 or If calling after hours, press 2 to be connected to a counselor.
