Health and Wellness


Keeping our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends safe is our top priority.

Every Buckeye plays an important part in taking care of each other. We realize that this is a challenging time, but our strength has been and always will be people. The coronavirus is unlike anything we have seen, but we remain committed to providing our students a quality education. The Ohio State Newark campus remains open and focused on supporting student learning. We aim to maintain “business as usual” as much as possible with safety adjustments, while serving students and our communities.

It’s scary to think about, but an active aggressor could strike any place, at any time. That’s why Ohio State’s Department of Public Safety has released a new “Surviving an Active Aggressor” video to educate the campus community. The 9-minute video provides important updates to the university’s original safety tutorial released in 2015. We encourage all Buckeyes to watch to enhance the safety of students, faculty and staff.
