Share Your #BuckeyeLove!

You know the feeling you get when a person does something nice for you? The warm fuzzies that come with knowing you’re loved? When you give to Ohio State, you can give a lot of people that feeling. Students, professors, patients, researchers – people whose lives are better because you cared enough to give. That’s Buckeye Love. Will you share your Buckeye Love today?

John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program Outreach
