personalized nutritional needs. She was drawn to The Ohio State University by
the range of courses and research opportunities in her chosen course of
Her visit to Columbus gave her an appreciation of the “University’s
mid-Western friendliness along with it diversity”. We are thrilled that Anna
chose to be a Buckeye!!

unrelated ares: ballet and computer engineering. Ohio State’s dance
