'The Ohio State University, commonly referred to as Ohio State or OSU, is a public research university in Columbus, Ohio.

Founded in 1870, as a land-grant university and ninth university in Ohio with the Morrill Act of 1862, the university was originally know as the Ohio Agriculture and Mechanical College.

The college began with a focus on training students in various agricultural and mechanical disciplines but was developed into a comprehensive university under the direction of Governor Rutherford B. Hayes and in 1878 the Ohio General Assembly passed a law changing the name to "The Ohio State University". It has since grown into the third largest university campus in the United States. Along with its main campus in Columbus. Ohio State also operates a regional campus system with regional campuses in Lima, Mansfield, Marion, Newark, and Wooster. '
