Ackerman Run is an Olentangy River tributary that runs through the OSU campus.
The red section that starts at the woods is headwaters for the north branch. The pink section furthest west is the start of the south branch and everything upstream is culverted. Several sections on OSU have been culverted and it makes the stream look unconnected. The branches reconnect and discharge along Ackerman/Dodridge. It is ditchlike near the Union Cemetery and OSU wetland.
