Dr. E. Gordon Gee He's a university president but Gordon Gee lives his life like an elected official; one with a stratospheric approval rating who is constantly bringing The Ohio State University message to the people. Monday on The Sound of Ideas, we'll spend an hour with Dr. Gee to find out why OSU is such an economic engine and why he believes universities must step up to drive the world's economy. We might talk a little Buckeye football too!


Economy, Education

We visited OSU last spring since my daughter is a high school senior. We loved the campus but we were surprised and disappointed at the room size in the dorms. How can OSU justify asking two student to share a room with space only for one indiviudal? Why doesn’t the university build larger accomodation for the students?

I’m a very loyal OSU alum and I love the university and respect your leadership of it.  My question is:  Recognizing that football revenue is a very important element in our tax-supported university’s budget, I surmise that the football ticket lottery is critical to institutional business operations.  Therefore, shouldn’t the workings of the lottery be made transparent to Ohio’s taxpayers?  Would you pls describe how that system works?  Thank you.

I take issue with the idea that the point of education is to get a job.  That is an exciting side benefit of becoming educated, but it is not the point.  Thx.  Bill Ferry, Bay Village.
