What's It Like in Our Classes?

You might get to put together a campaign to save the puppies in a political science course, learn economics lessons from the owner of one of the world's best pizza makers, study languages in the "holo-deck," learn organic chemistry with a computer game, plant native wildflowers on a nearby hilltop, or finish your major with a fieldtrip to Yellowstone.

Sometimes your class may be upside down. Physics professors "flip" their classrooms so there is more time for hands-on work in class. When roommates gather round your computer to watch your homework assignment, you're probably taking a Classics mythology course. OHIO is a research-intensive university, and undergraduate students have plenty of opportunities to take classes with faculty who are active researchers—and many students also take advantage of research courses or internships with faculty. More than 120 biology students did research with faculty in 2012-13. Undergraduate students are often co-authors on published papers and presenters at academic conferences.
