Fox New's Greta Van Susteren .... "Any Universities in Franklin County, OH?"


"Any Universities in Franklin County, (OH)?"

As she was interviewing a reporter from the Columbus Dispatch about
early voting in OH.

That would be a yes dear .... in Columbus, OH .... Franklin County, OH
the largest university in the nation ..... called Ohio State University.



Where does Fox get these people?

7. thanks
Further South than I'd imagined. Being the first generation of our family to go to a United States college, an event which occurred when I was 29, college locations aren't a big thing

11. Actually, if you get a degree from OSU, it will say "The Ohio State University."
They do consider it part of the formal name, even if no one ever really calls it that.

This way, they also legally distinguish themselves from Ohio University, which issues diplomas with "The Ohio University" on them as its formal name.

Also, only Ohio University is permitted to use the word "OHIO" in all capital letters to identify itself.

10. For her next questions, Greta will ask
1. whether there are any people in Columbus who like to wear scarlet and gray
2. whether Cuyahoga County has any cities of size in it
3. whether there are any farmers in Ohio
4. whether there are any large bodies of water near Ohio
