My Home Away from Home

There aren’t many places in the Midwest as beautiful as Athens, OH in the fall. There’s really something special about this campus and much of it begins with the quality of the people Ohio University tends to attract. OU offered me the quintessential college experience during my time in Athens as an undergrad. I’m currently enrolled in the online MBA program and my education has been a pillar to my career success thus far. There are quite a few really great Universities and I’m lucky to have found one right here in my home state of Ohio.
