OSU Annual Reports

- from the University Archives

Spanning nearly 100 years, the Archives’ collection of Ohio State University Annual Reports offers a detailed look at the yearly operations of the university. The tone of the reports is diary-like at the beginning, recounting in great detail the university’s founding and humble beginnings. As time goes on, the reports become more business-like, offering not only an overall picture of the conditions under which the university is operating, but detailed accounts of budget, staff and facility changes. More recently, the reports have evolved into promotional pieces, showing how the university shaped the lives of its students and overall community.
