But for Ohio State

In fiscal year 2013, 228,297 alumni and friends donated $374 million to Ohio State. These Buckeyes are helping the university move from excellence to eminence as part of the But for Ohio State Campaign. From support for student scholarships to investment in research and innovation, this year's fundraising totals are 3.5% higher than last year, with 31.5% more alumni contributing.

"Donors' investment in Ohio State is an incredible testament to their belief in us as a forward-looking and -thinking university with world-changing potential," says Michael C. Eicher, Senior Vice President for Advancement and President, The Ohio State University Foundation.

Learn more about Buckeyes' generosity, including a new scholarship created by Ohio State alumni band O.A.R.

Parental dreams

Read the Ohio State research that gives insight into the actions of "stage moms" and "sports dads" who push their sometimes-unwilling kids to become stars.

Greener grass

Homeowners spray their lawns with pesticides and fertilizers to kill weeds and make grass grow, right? Wrong, says a new Ohio State study. Instead, the main factor behind lawn chemical use is whether or not neighbors are using them.

Find out why treated lawns may be a reflection of homeowners' desires to fit in.
