About the program

The offices of Undergraduate Admissions, University Orientation and First Year Experience; Diversity and Inclusion; and Student Life at The Ohio State University are pleased to announce the launch of the Buckeye Student Leadership Academy.

The BSLA is a special summer program for rising Ohio high school seniors who are high achieving, first-generation, rural and/or underrepresented minority students.

The program gives participants the opportunity to broadly experience life on the Ohio State campus. Over three and a half days, participants will:

  • Attend personal development workshops
  • Meet with faculty and staff
  • Work on group projects
  • Interact with Ohio State students
  • Take part in leadership, cultural and social activities

Cost

The program is free to participants.

Transportation

Bus transportation is available from Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo and southeast Ohio. Students also have the option to drive to campus, and Ohio State will provide a parking permit. On-campus transportation is provided for attendees when necessary.

Benefits of the program

Students will learn more about themselves and others, and how to make the college experience work for them. They'll learn about resources that support their success and consider how to become better leaders on campus and in their communities. They'll also hear about the admissions process and how to afford a college education.
