Aubree's story: How it looks when it all works out
An internship - a key component of the university's Student Success Initiative - helps one student complete her OSU degree ready for immediate professional success. Barely 60 percent of OSU freshmen complete their degrees in six years, and the university seeks to improve that by making sure more students have experiences (like internships) that lead to graduation.
