Discover Ohio State

The Ohio State University has one of the largest student populations on one campus in the United States. Information regarding Ohio State’s diverse enrollment can be found at the Office of Enrollment Services Analysis and Reporting. Underrepresented groups are seen as clients in slightly greater numbers at CCS than are reflected in the campus population enrollment statistics for most groups.

The Ohio State campus is located in central Columbus, the capital city of Ohio. With a metropolitan area of over 1,000,000, Columbus is geographically situated in the heart of Ohio. Social, cultural and recreational opportunities exist to suit every taste: classical music to country, gourmet dining to "down home cooking," football to marathon racing, ballet to progressive art, and ethnic festivals to a huge state agricultural fair. Another attractive aspect of the Columbus community is the reasonable cost of living for a city of its size and the relative ease of travel by car within the metropolitan area.
