New OSU pres: Athletic success a way to promote broader university

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) --Ohio State's new president says he sees the university's athletic success as a way to focus attention on the many other things at which the university excels.

Michael Drake says the university hasn't always gotten as much credit for the 98 percent of campus activities outside of athletics and sees a chance to make people more familiar with those areas.

Drake said Wednesday he would use the success the university has had in sports as an example of what it looks like when Ohio State does things well and expand that to promotion of everything from its cancer research to the performing arts.

Drake is the former University of California-Irvine chancellor. He was chosen as Ohio State's 15th president in January, ending a seven-month search.
