All Things “Block O”

12 Jan , 2023  

By 1812Blockhouse

Living in a community in the network of campuses of The Ohio State University, many Richland Countians are rabid supporters of Buckeye sports.

One tradition commonly associated with Buckeye football is ‘Block O,” a student organization at OSU that serves as the official cheering section. Founded in 1938, Block O has grown to become the largest student organization on the campus of the Ohio State University.

Block O is perhaps best known for occupying a section of seating at Ohio Stadium during home football games, leading cheers, and making designs using cards. A bit over 2,000 tickets are allotted to students to sit in this area; Block O itself has over 2,500 student members.

Buckeye Opportunity Program Helps Keep College Affordable At OSU

16 Dec , 2022  

Special to 1812Blockhouse from The Ohio State University at Mansfield

As new Buckeyes are starting to receive their acceptance letters, The Ohio State University is reminding the incoming class of 2027 to take advantage of the university’s commitment to access and affordability.

One of the signature affordability programs at Ohio State is the Buckeye Opportunity Program. Launched in 2019, the program ensures that all eligible Ohio resident students on all campuses who qualify for a federal Pell Grant receive enough student financial aid beginning their first semester to cover the full cost of undergraduate tuition and mandatory fees.

Now, the university is reminding current and incoming students to take advantage of this and other financial aid programs. One of the first steps is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on time.
