The Biggest Learner

Starting College Right

This season on the Biggest Learner, we're focusing on students in the Preferred Pathway® as they get started on their college career! The Preferred Pathway® allows you to "pre-major" for a bachelor's degree at Ohio State, taking advantage of Columbus State's low class sizes and low tuition costs. Along the way, we'll take a particular look at COLS 1100 and 1101, the college's new first year experience class.
