5 Under 25 Panels

Sponsored by Student Alumni Council

Student-Alumni Council aims to enhance the student experience and cultivate relationships between past, present, and future students. We will hold six virtual panels this year, each with 5 panelists under the age of 25.

Study Abroad 

Join us as we host five recent graduates to discuss their time abroad as a student. Panelists will share some of the many opportunities Ohio State has to offer and how to choose the right fit for you. They will talk about their enriching global experience and how the opportunity has shaped their life post-graduation. Many students think that they do not have the time nor the finances to study abroad, but these alumni are here to share how they navigated around that.
