Sidewalks, buildings and residence halls throughout The Ohio State University campus are scattered with students eagerly attending new classes and events.
Students at the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences arrived Autumn Semester to find the new Noster House. The North Campus residence hall has a learning community space which provides an opportunity for students interested in agriculture, natural or environmental resources to associate with one another. It bears the same name as the residence hall built on the same spot in the 1960s to honor Bill Nosker, a football player who was later killed during World War II.
Nosker House is awesome," Freshman Kady Davis said. "It has several study rooms, a kitchen and lounging areas. It makes the transition to college that much easier when you’re able to be around those who share the same interests as you.”
Mindi Brookhart, a junior in agricultural communication, is looking forward to the opportunity to focus on her major classes in CFAES but still take advantage of her time on central campus by networking and continuing to meet new friends.
“The positive energy of campus this time of year is contagious. You can’t help but love being back, seeing old friends and meeting new faces,” she said.
David Glass, a senior in agribusiness and applied economics, is excited to be in the `Shoe cheering on the football team with 100,000 fellow Buckeyes. “It’s always great to come home to campus. Fall semester is especially great as we welcome new students, start a new year and get pumped for another great football season," he said.
Being back on campus, surrounded by friends and all of the amenities that Columbus offers, is incredible, said Natalie Miller, a junior in agribusiness and applied economics.
