Wondering if anyone knows what some of the benefits of being an assistant professor at Ohio State are for a an individual and family. Access to recreation facilities? Networking opportunities? Memberships? Tickets? Discounts? Tuition breaks? Any specifics would be appreciated. Thanks!

I believe people working there get free tuition if they want to get a higher degree. And direct family members (spouse, children) get half off tuition.

I'm trying to find an I.T. job at OSU or OSU Medical but it's very hard to get in. A lot of people want to work there. People there don't pay Social Security. They pay into PERS which I have about 15 years worth so I could transfer my time.

Definitely get ticket discounts for all the sports. That's very valuable for Football.
You have access to the Faculty Club.
You can use the RHAC facility like students can

Good health insurance coverage for you and your family. (even domestic partnership benefits for same sex couples).

I worked for University of Kentucky while in graduate school, you get benefits of free athletic evens, free parking, good health insurance, being around educated people, working in high education doesn't pay the best if your not tenured. Ohio St is a great academic institution thou, its hard to get hired at Ohio St from what I heard.. good Luck to you.
