Newsletter for Incoming Graduate Students

Common Ground is the official newsletter for incoming electrical and computer engineering graduate students. It will serve as your information resource for a variety of topics and tasks to complete before you begin autumn semester at Ohio State. In May, June and July, we will email incoming graduate students Common Ground and post the newsletter here. Common Ground has a lot of helpful information as students prepare to join us here at Ohio State.
