OUTSTANDING! That's a whole lot of "not General Studies". I love it!

The only thing that's new in the world is the history that we have forgotten.

Pete Werner - Exploring. My mind is exploring that one.

Thumbs up

Does that mean he has not decided on a major?

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Yep. They call "undeclared" exploration or exploring at OSU. You have to declare by the end of your second year IIRC.

Student athletes have pretty strict degree matriculation requirements (e.g. must be 40% of way to degree through sophomore year), so if you declare your major early in your career, you're pretty much stuck in that or a really similar field. By choosing the longest possible runway for Exploration, it helps many of them have some flexibility to decide what they want to focus on. So for some students who want to pursue something selective, going the EXP route lets them have a pathway to something else if they need to down the road.

For the record, I'm not at all familiar with Werner's situation, but Exploration in and of itself is often a tactical move to not be bound by understandable-but-still-kinda-onerous NCAA rules.

Hey - that was my major!  

I would've been in this group, too.  Graduated above 3.0.  

'97 - Molecular Genetics

While playing an intercollegiate sport?  (Not criticizing, as I majored in "undecided" with a minor in "pick-up basketball" while not playing anything close to an intercollegiate sport.  But I did graduate in 3 1/2 years!)

The Ohio State University "exploring" degree is highly coveted

Congrats men!

Go Bucks!

This is awesome.

If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die.

I'm a little disappointed that 16/28 were walk-on/special team players.

Essentially 15 of the 85 players on scholarship made the list, the percentage of walk-on's is impressive still.

HS

I suspect that one of the criteria for selection of walk-ons is high academic performance, a) to help maintain the graduation rate; b) to provide examples to the scholarship athletes, and c) because they can.

Well done and well earned, here is to finishing what you have started! 

I would rather be on hand with 10 men then elsewhere with 10,000 - Timur Lenk

Trying to remember, what quarterback majored in the molecular genetics, or a similar field.
