OSUM Students Start Book Swap To Cut College Costs

11 Jan , 2019  

Buying books can be expensive. Every semester many students have to make a decision that may hurt their academic progress – buy all the books required or forgo the expense to save a little money.

Students at The Ohio State University at Mansfield have decided to try to help each other out a bit by attending a textbook swap. Kidron Stamper, who serves as the student member of the Ohio State Mansfield Board of Trustees, helped coordinate the event. “As the student trustee, one of my big tasks is to help with college affordability,” Stamper explains. “Classes already cost money, so I came up with this idea where students can trade books at the beginning of the semester to help cut their expenses a little.” More…

OSU Mansfield Professor Lead Author For Study On Tipping Points

12 Dec , 2018  

You probably overestimate just how far someone can push you before you reach your tipping point, new research suggests.

No, we’re not talking about your emotional tipping point.

A new study examined how far people thought they could lean over backwards before they would actually fall to the ground. When study participants were put into a device that slowly and safely tilted them, most thought they reached their tipping point when they were tilted somewhere near 14 degrees from vertical (straight up and down). But research suggests the actual tipping point for most people is nearer to 8 or 9 degrees, said Dennis Shaffer, lead author of the study and associate professor of psychology at The Ohio State University at Mansfield.
