35 Buckeyes Participating in 2022 Bucks Go Pro 1.0 Class


The Ohio State University Department of Athletics announced the 2022 Bucks Go Pro 1.0 class for 2022. Comprised of a total of 35 student-athletes representing 22 sports programs, the group will be interning within the athletics department, on campus and with companies off campus.

2022 BUCKS GO PRO 1.0 Class

The Eugene D. Smith Leadership Institute’s most tenured program, the Bucks Go Pro 1.0 Internship program runs eight weeks over the summer and allows student-athletes to gain important hands-on professional experience. The program incorporates an educational curriculum focused on areas such as networking, leadership and personal finance.

The Bucks Go Pro 2.0 Internship program allows the student-athletes to gain intensive internship experience in a multitude of roles with more than 30 companies. The Ohio State Athletics Department is incredibly grateful for our partners who have helped take this program to the next level. The experiences offered through BGP 2.0 have grown by 153% since our pilot program in the summer of 2018.

Both internship programs strive to:

  1. Provide the student-athletes with meaningful work experience in a professional setting
  2. Help enhance student-athletes’ resumes
  3. Teach student-athletes how to develop a network of colleagues
  4. Expand our student-athletes’ reference beyond their professors and coaches
  5. Help our student-athletes be better prepared for life after college and represent Ohio State with class in their professional endeavors.
