As soon as I stepped foot on College Green, I knew this was the school for me. The campus is breathtaking and everyone is so nice and friendly. It truly is a Bobcat family, with everyone wanting to meet and help one another. The College of Business is well-ranked and respected. I liked that the [accounting] program was focused on application rather than theory. I knew that by choosing OHIO, I would be well prepared for my career and have fun in the process.
