What Cohort Members Have to Say:

“The Honors Cohort Program has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my college career. Being in an intellectually stimulating environment and talking about groundbreaking issues relevant in today’s world with some of the brightest students in Fisher is something I would not trade anything for. The people I have met in this program, the relationships I have developed and the person I have become today has made my OSU experience all the more enriching.”

– Nikita Shah, 17th Honors Cohort


“Honors Cohort has challenged me to think critically and step outside of my comfort zone. The most valuable aspect of the program to me is being immersed in a classroom setting where independent thought and debate is encouraged. The diverse viewpoints of my classmates has made for very interesting in-class discussions.”

– Zach Riedy, 17th Honors Cohort


“Cohort is everything you can’t get in an ordinary classroom. You are surrounded by 29 intelligent, dedicated, and extraordinary students who push you to be as academically driven as possible. You learn from one another as well as the carefully selected professors who go above and beyond what is expected of them in the classroom. Cohort has changed my college career, has given me amazing people to learn from and work with, and has been a priceless, yet intellectually stimulating experience that I wouldn’t trade for the world. I’m excited to see what Professor Brandl has in store for the future and have no doubt this program has the potential to be one of the best honors programs in the country.”
