President Drake unveils affordability proposal
For the first time in at least 40 years, Ohio State would institute a comprehensive freeze on costs for in-state students under a plan President Drake recently announced. Under this affordability proposal, the university would freeze rates on in-state tuition, mandatory fees, housing, dining and all undergraduate program, course and learning technology fees on the Columbus campus.

Meet Team Buckeye rider Todd Hills
"Pelotonia and Team Buckeye has become so much more to me than a bicycle ride to raise money for The James. It has become my passion, my community and my family. One that is diverse, loving, supportive and caring. We ride together. We fundraise together. We mourn together. We party together. It is where friends are made and families grow. Tears shed and laughter shared. So much more than a bike ride. In the end we are in it together: One Goal. End Cancer."
