What it means to be a Buckeye

Woody said it's about paying forward. Others say it's a way of life. Another Buckeye put it this way: It means you have 55,000 people on campus and millions of people in the workforce who have your back.

Join the more than 20,000 Buckeyes who have watched as Archie Griffin, professors, and students talk about what it means to be a Buckeye. Watch the video and let us know what you think.
