Our Commitment

As the state’s #1 public university, a primary mission of The Ohio State University is to provide all Ohioans with access to higher education. That includes a commitment to citizens from Ohio’s many rural and small towns. The Small Town and Rural Students (STARS) initiative helps us further our work to remove barriers to college that rural students and families often face. Through STARS, we are extending our outreach efforts to engage academically talented rural, first-generation students from across the state. Join our mailing list to learn more about Ohio State!
