Alum enjoys strengths of two Ohio State campuses

Dr. Ann Baker knows why she loves The Ohio State University and believes that everyone who wants an education can find what they need within the University.

Dr. Ann Baker

“Anyone in Ohio who doesn’t choose to go to Ohio State is crazy,” she said. “I am an advocate for both the main campus and the regionals. It is the greatest university – an elite in the Big 10. I love main campus and Ohio State Lima is part of the main campus that is here, that is physically close to me.”
