Department of Animal Sciences


Campus Change Students

Ohio State CampusesNot all Buckeyes start on the Columbus Campus. Many find starting at one of the regional campuses a better choice for their personal and professional goals. Transfer students are an important addition to the Department of Animal Sciences community. They bring a diversity of experience and knowledge to the classroom and extracurricular activities, along with the intellectual passion to graduate and succeed. When Campus Change students are ready to make the transition, the Department of Animal Sciences provides a supportive environment of faculty, students, staff, and resources. Through our hands-on curriculum, co-curricular teams,leadership and research opportunities, our animal science students are prepared to make an impact in the world.

"The transition to Columbus was definitely a change, but I wouldn’t say that it was difficult! Taking full advantage of campus transition days definitely helped me feel more welcome. A lot of ATI students transition to Columbus also, so it was really nice to see familiar faces as soon as I got to Columbus!"
