Data Analytics Academic Path Peers

Want to learn more about the Data Analytics major from students currently in the program? There's an APP for that!

Data Analytics Academic Path Peers, or DA APPs, are undergraduate students who are available to answer questions and chat with current students about life as a Data Analytics major. Ask a DA APP how they decided which specialization to pursue, why they chose a specific minor, which student organizations they recommend joining, how they established a work/study/life balance, or how they started their internship search. Speaking with a DA APP can help you figure out your own individual academic path. Plus, it's a great way to meet other DA majors and make Ohio State feel like home!

How does it work?
