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 current students who can answer questions 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, how they established a work/study/life balance, or how they began their internship search. Speaking with a DA APP can help you figure out your own 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 list of DA APPs to see information about their involvement, academics, and advice for new students.
