The American Statistical Association (ASA) DataFest™ @ OSU welcomed 243 undergraduate students to campus from April 5 - 7 for their fourth annual weekend competition. In addition to tackling a large dataset and multiple analysis challenges, students had the opportunity to network with professionals, learn more about career opportunities and work with mentors like Wilner Jeanty and Jordan Springer from OCIO.
We want to alert Ohio State students to a fraudulent scheme involving a third party offering to pay your Ohio State tuition charges in order to save you money. This information has also been shared with students by Ohio State Enrollment Services.
In this scam, a person asks for your Ohio State username and password to pay your tuition charges by credit card. Once you receive a confirmation of the credit card payment, you are instructed to send the person a wire transfer payment or a check for that amount less 5 percent.
Despite receiving a confirmation of the credit card payment, the payment is fraudulent and will eventually be rejected by the credit card company, leaving you with a balance still due to Ohio State.
Dave Kieffer, Senior Director of Enterprise Applications, found opportunity in an unexpected place. When he realized that Ohio State students were interning at Hyland, the vendor that provides OnBase software for OCIO’s Enterprise Document Management, he saw the chance to bring tech talent back to the university while also building a mutually beneficial relationship with a major vendor. Meeting with these students to share employment opportunities was just the beginning.
