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?
Check out our DA APP directory.
Scroll through the complete list of DA APPs to see additional information about their involvement, academics, and advice for new students. You can use this information to find a DA APP who will be able to answer your questions about life as a Data Analytics major.
Connect with your DA APP mentor.
All Pre-Data Analytics students are paired with a DA APP as their primary point of contact. If you are a Pre-Data Analytics major, please contact your assigned DA APP when questions arise! If you do not know who your assigned DA APP is, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would prefer to connect with a different DA APP, that's fine too! Fill out the DA APP Connect Form and let us know which of the 12 DA APPs you would like to connect with.
Visit DA APP Office Hours.
Each DA APP holds office hours bi-weekly in 125 Pomerene Hall. Feel free to stop by and chat with a DA APP face-to-face - no appointment required!
If there is a DA APP you'd like to chat with, fill out the DA APP Connect Form. You will receive an email from your DA APP within one week to get the conversation started.
