2012 year in review

Last year, Ohio State alumni and students competed in the Olympics. Faculty stars Lonnie Thompson and Ellen Mosley-Thompson were recognized as Franklin Medalists. Students shared their research with President Barack Obama. Alumni created a new Pixar movie, Brave. Buckeye fans welcomed Coach Urban Meyer, then celebrated a 12-0 season.

Relive Ohio State’s 2012 highlights, including the launch of the university's $2.5 billion But for Ohio State campaign.

We can’t wait to see what Buckeyes do in 2013!

Resolution: health

Zero waste

  

When 105,330 football fans gather to watch the Buckeyes, they create a lot of waste material—an average of 16 tons per game. Fortunately, more than 90% of these materials were diverted from the landfill several times this season, achieving Zero Waste.

Read about the national award these sustainability efforts earned. Learn more about Zero Waste at Ohio State.

Snow days

  

The lyrics of “Carmen Ohio” assure us we’ll always be Buckeyes, through “summer’s heat or winter’s cold.” One of these scenarios is underway now, as campus lies beneath a blanket of snow.

Check out scenes of an Ohio State winter wonderland, and learn about the good cause that helps students stay warm this season.

Growing aggression

Shooting guns, stealing cars, attacking assailants: when these activities take place virtually, there aren’t long-term repercussions in reality, right? Wrong, say Ohio State researchers. A recent study finds that repeated exposure to violent video games leads to aggressive behavior.

Discover why playing violent video games is like smoking cigarettes.

Share your pride
