A guide to what college rankings don't tell you.

The Ohio State University

Columbus, OH

The Ohio State University says, "Ohio State's General Education (GE) is an integral part of an Arts and Sciences education. General education, as embodied in Arts and Sciences, provides the development of knowledge, perception, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand society's traditions and past, its accomplishments and aspirations, its relation and responsibility to the natural world, its diversity and plurality, and its problems and needs. The goal is for you to attain a sense of self within society that invites a continuing desire and ability to learn and work with others for future realization of the human potential. Specific goals aimed toward the broader goal of the GE are listed...under the twelve categories of the curriculum." [Source]
