Bill Goebel, Squeezed a 4 year degree into 6

User avatar for Bill Goebel

I attended from 85-91, squeezing a 4 year degree (and two minors) into 6. While I was frustrated in some larger classes which had international lecturers with less than perfect command of the English language, the community experience was great. I was just thinking this week, how a number of general classes and 1st year classes in my major were "weed-out" classes. I was frustrated by this because I was working to pay my way through school and felt that if I were paying them, they should be serving me as a customer to make my experience at OSU and my education the best it could be, not get rid of me. I took 6 months off to save money then went my last 3 years straight through, summers and all. At that point, I worked for the Department of Industrial Design and was into my core coursework. It is not an easy major but I loved every minute of it. I made great friends from my experience in the dorms to my college to the community in Columbus. I value my time at Ohio State as a great learning experience, not only in classes but in life and definitely a maturing process as well. I wouldn't trade it for the world and hope my son, a scholar athlete, will be a legacy as well.

I attended the Ohio State University in the 90's and valued every minute of the experience. I remember touring the campus with a friend who thought that the campus was too big and intimidating. I felt trepidation at first, but found that the campus had so much to offer. There were many parts of campus that showed the rich history that Ohio State had built up over the years. There were plenty of folks that were ready to provide guidance so long as you didn't approach them with a whiny attitude. I encountered wonderful professors and ineffective professors, which is the case at any college or university. There were plenty of student services offered to me to help me find my way toward a degree and moving on to becoming a productive member of society. I am proud to be an alumni of the Ohio State University and I enjoy interacting with the Ohio State community and fan base through my small business as well.

Lee Bishop, OSU Alumnus and career positions in post-secondary educational administration

I graduated in 1971. Dan Heinlein was a fellow student whom I got to know a little and respected throughout his career. I had dean of students whom I respected along with the dean of the college of law. As president of the OSU Veterans Association I can tell you we were spurned by the Fawcett administration. OSU was appropriately labeled a leftwing indoctrination center and remains one today. My oldest son transferred to OSU from the University of Arizona and was given appropriate transfer credit. His analysis was that OSU is the picture of what you think of when you think "college" and that the professors he had were outstanding for the most part. He did comment that without doubt OSU provides the worst administrative experience anyone will have anywhere. He was "permitted" to go through the graduation ceremony this spring, but he was not given his degree in history because, the day before the ceremony, he was advised the university (capriciously) decided to withdraw credit for a three-hour basic math course he'd taken in Tucson. That is intolerable behavior on the part of a state university and appears to be based upon a desire for more tuition revenue. (In my career I've served as president of one university and two colleges.)

Anonymous, Fisher COB grad -- early 2000s

Ohio State...how to summarize my experience? As a member of Fisher's College of Business I'll have to admit that my time at The Ohio State University might differ from others. I was focused on learning everything there was to know about entrepreneurship at the time. Luckily for me the university had a support system in place to enable and accelerate my learnings. For instance the entrepreneurship minor is comprised of professors with real-world, first hand entrepreneurial experience. There was a nice balance of personal learnings and theory within the curriculum. Another benefit was the professors would bring in guest lecturers (other accomplished entrepreneurs) to address & motivate the class.

Outside of the classroom, the Business Builders Club was an active student led organization that focused on building real-world experience. I made life long connections through the BBC. I truly believe OSU has an underrated entrepreneurship program!

The student body outside of Fisher can be best described as passionate. The range of passions varied by student. For some it was sports (football specifically) for others it might have been greek life or a cause on campus. Truly remarkable to see the university come together and create a community given their diversity.

I graduated in 1971. Dan Heinlein was a fellow student whom I got to know a little and respected throughout his career. I had dean of students whom I respected along with the dean of the college of law. As president of the OSU Veterans Association I can tell you we were spurned by the Fawcett administration. OSU was appropriately labeled a leftwing indoctrination center and remains one today. My oldest son transferred to OSU from the University of Arizona and was given appropriate transfer credit. His analysis was that OSU is the picture of what you think of when you think "college" and that the professors he had were outstanding for the most part. He did comment that without doubt OSU provides the worst administrative experience anyone will have anywhere. He was "permitted" to go through the graduation ceremony this spring, but he was not given his degree in history because, the day before the ceremony, he was advised the university (capriciously) decided to withdraw credit for a three-hour basic math course he'd taken in Tucson. That is intolerable behavior on the part of a state university and appears to be based upon a desire for more tuition revenue. (In my career I've served as president of one university and two colleges.)
