If you were to look back at the history of Ohio State University, one could find out that the finalization of the university’s curriculum was done not before a long drawn out debate and voting, with the ‘broad gauge’ faction finally prevailing over the ‘narrow gauge’ supporters by a thin margin of 8-7 in the Board of Trustees. The ‘broad gauge’ faction pushed for a curriculum that covers liberal arts and a wide range of studies, meanwhile the ‘narrow gauge’ group was supporting a curriculum that includes agriculture and mechanical arts only. The outcome of that eventual voting in the Board of Trustees lingers even today, with the OSU offering courses in a wide range of studies – instead of limiting to few disciplines – from mechanical engineering, medical science, biochemistry, and physics to molecular biology, arts, business education, and history, to name a few, and in the process, catapulting OSU to become the largest public university in the Unites States.

Other facilities in the Ohio State University include many top notch libraries – 21 libraries in the Columbus campus and eight in the regional campuses, and off-campus research facilities – 31 on-campus residence halls, medical care facilities, book store, banks, and a comprehensive recreation center that encompasses play areas, stadiums, and basketball courts.

As a member of the List of Public Ivy Schools, it is closely associated with institutions such as University of Florida, University of Colorado Boulder, Rutgers, and University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
