Welcome to counselors at the 2022 Ross/Ohio Mathematics Program.


Counselors need to arrive at our dormitory in Columbus
    before noon on Monday, June 13.

  • FLYING to the Columbus Airport (CMH): Staff members will meet Ross participants as they arrive.
          Counselor meeting will begin with dinner on Monday, June 13.

  • DRIVING: Here are Driving Directions to Ohio Dominican University.

  • DEPARTURE: The final lecture, awards presentations, and goodbyes will be completed by 11:00 on July 27. Please plan your departing flights to leave that day after 2 PM. Shuttles will get participants the airport more than an hour before their flights.

What to Bring

Please read the What to Bring document that is written for campers and their parents. Counselors may ignore the restriction on computers: Please bring a laptop.

Note that Ross participants are enrolled in the University’s linen service, providing a clean towel, pillowcase, and sheets each week. Since they do not provide pillows, you may either bring a pillow or purchase one after you arrive. If you need more than one towel per week, you may bring your own or purchase new ones, washing and drying your towels as needed.

REMINDER: Bring your passport or equivalent identification documents. That ID are required to complete the tax documents.

Agreements for Campers

Ross campers and JCs are asked to read Program Rules and Standards of Behavior, and then to sign the Participation Agreement. As a counselor, you do not need to sign that Agreement, and you may bring a computer. But you should be familiar with the content of those three documents because you will play a large role in ensuring that those Rules and Stndards are followed. These issues will be discussed further during counselor meetings.

Medical Information.

You will be sent an email requesting medical information.

Scan the front and back of your medical insurance card, and email the resulting PDF file to medical@rossprogram.org , with the subject line “insurance card” followed by your name.

Ross participants must have health insurance that protects them from major expenses due to medical emergencies.
Such events are very rare, but can happen. Someone might have an accident or illness that results in tens of thousands of dollars of fees for hospitals and doctors.

The Ross Program’s insurance requirement is fulfilled if your current insurance policy covers “emergency medical care” in Ohio, even if it does not cover routine care. Of course you are welcome to purchase additional insurance if desired.

Do not already have insurance?
Many companies offer short term insurance policies that cover major medical expenses. Costs vary depending on the deductible, maximum coverage, and extras (like coverage during your travel). For example, see the various companies and policies listed at:   Visitors Coverage .

Let us know if you are having difficulty arranging for such medical insurance.
