Individual Appointments and Visits

Schedule an individualized campus visit

The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences hosts students and families for an extended campus visit called Experience Ohio State for a Day (EOFD).  These visits are typically a half-day experience including a meeting with the School of Environment and Natural Resources to answer questions and discuss academic and career pathways, lunch (on us!), and an individual campus tour with a current student in your major of interest. Schedule your EOFD here:
