What does it mean to be a Buckeye:
Being a Buckeye means having an opportunity to get a great education while being a leader on campus, finding ways to change the world and making the campus better for the students that will attend after me. It is an honor to be called a Buckeye, because it means a lot when we go out into the world and yell “O-H” and always hear people reply “I-O!” Go Bucks!!

To be a Buckeye means to be an advocate for diversity and for social injustices. It means to stand up for yourself and others. Being a Buckeye means to be kind and be a leader.
