All Things Are Possible

Oh, hi open possibilities

States in the Midwest aren't all the same. This friendly, Midwest state has a great university system with private and independent schooling options. The Buckeye State promotes careers in energy technology through its Ohio Energy Pathways program. Many college courses and certifications are also offered via online learning. If you want to be on the fast track, Ohio offers the rare opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree in just 3 years. Graduates of the Buckeye State who stick around town have a better chance than most to start their careers, with an unemployment rate of 5.7%, below the national average, and a few big-name companies who call Ohio home: Dutch Boy Paint, Marathon Petroleum, and Scott's LawnService.

When it's time to relax, Ohio has a wealth of ways to enjoy the local sights. Plenty of state parks offer hiking, golfing, and biking, and there are many historic bridges, canal lands, and museums to explore. When it's time to wind down and hang out with friends, check out The Comet in Cincinnati, St. James Tavern in Columbus, or Great Lakes Brewing Co. in Cleveland. Take a day off for roller coaster fun at King's Island amusement park. and whether you're a LeBron James fan or not, you'll have fun cheering on the Cleveland Cavaliers or chomping on peanuts and hot dogs for the Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Bengals, or Cleveland Browns. As the Ohio slogans claim, there's "So much to discover" at the "Heart of it all."
