Campus a-buzz with new students

COLUMBUS, Ohio – OSU officials say: If you aren’t moving in on Saturday, please stay away from the campus area.

It will be bustling with thousands of students arriving on campus for the first time.

University officials say more than 7,000 freshmen will move into their dorms as they prepare to start classes next week and all streets on the central campus will be closed to all non-move in traffic from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Significant traffic delays are anticipated as well parking spaces will be hard to come by throughout the campus area.

Applications from would-be Buckeyes hit an all-time high this year. The 35,475 applications was a 24 percent increase over last years, Dolan Evanovich, vice president for strategic enrollment planning, said.

“Demand for an Ohio State education has never been higher,” he said.

Evanovich estimates approximately 7,100 new students will be on the Columbus campus when classes begin next Wednesday.

The incoming freshman boasts some of the highest test scores and students ranked in the top 10 and 25 percent of their high school classes of any previous class, Evanovich said.
