Ohio State Athletics Announces 2019 Huntington Bucks Go Pro 1.0 Class


The Ohio State University Department of Athletics announced the 2019 Huntington Bucks Go Pro 1.0 intern class on Monday (Apr. 22). Comprised of a program-record 46 student athletes representing 24 different Buckeyes sports programs, the group will be interning within the Athletics Department, on campus and with organizations off campus.


The Eugene D. Smith Leadership Institute’s most tenured program, the Huntington 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. Furthermore, the program expands student-athletes’ scope by participating in site visits with local Columbus employers.

The seventh-year internship program also strives 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.
