O-H-I-O 110

The Ohio State University Marching Band is known for excellence and steeped in tradition. From Skull Sessions to Script Ohio, we go behind-the-scenes to learn what it takes to be a part of “The Best Damn Band in The Land.”  Also in this episode, find out how one of America’s largest universities carefully creates a “so big it’s personal” experience for new students, acclimating them to campus and preparing them for academic success.  Next, woman and man’s best friend take center stage as cancer experts discover the parallels between bone cancer in children and cancer in dogs, improving treatment options for both.  Then, see how new knowledge and creativity can be achieved when artists and scientists collaborate at the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design using computer graphics and animation. Finally, in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness month, uncover how society’s “deepest secret” can be prevented and treated through initiatives like Ohio State’s It’s Abuse campaign.
