4 College Sophomore

Majors: To get into the major you need to apply and be accepted. Acceptance is based on GPA and EPR. So your grade point average and how well you do in individual classes that act towards the major. Most importantly is to get the prerequisites for applying out of the way and apply as soon as possible, before higher level courses drop your GPA.

Transportation: Anywhere you need to go in a seven mile radius is accessible by bike. There are bike lanes on most of the roads and the traffic knows to watch for cyclists. If that isn't enough, the public buses are cheap and have bike racks on the front in case you're going long distance. There's also a campus bus system that carries students all throughout the campus and university village, the university apartments. You can get almost anywhere in the city using these systems and for the rest you can either drive or hoof it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus doesn't worry about what we do in out free time. The only concern the campus has is to teach us, or more specifically, to make sure we come back and continue to pay tuition. The teachers care much more about how much we learn and make sure we get the material. There's plenty of help from advisory staff if we need it and it's often a very smooth process when we do.

Nightlife: Everyone at OSU is very friendly and outgoing, therefore the nightlife atmosphere is incredibly fun! There is always something to do or somewhere to go each night of the week, in regard to nightlife, but OSU students are extremely studious so it is much more common for students to go out on Thursday nights, downtown, and the weekends.

There is a reason the Buckeye Nation is considered to be so devoted; an overwhelming love for OSU is evident in student responses, and in the loyalty of alumni to their alma mater. Each person has his or her own reasons for loving the University, and there are quite a few of them. Some students feel that the academics are top-notch and have found exactly the programs they wanted; others lean toward the athletic success of the Buckeye teams, while some just feel that the friendships and bonds they have made are enough to make their tenure at OSU worthwhile. At any rate, everyone can agree that being a Buckeye creates a special bond between you and nearly 50,000 other students, which you will carry with you for the rest of your life.

Once you get past the sheer size of the University, it will really become a second home. After only a quarter of classes, you won't be able to cross the Oval without seeing someone you know. Ohio State is truly the smallest large university you will find. The people are known for their friendly attitudes, and alumni are scattered across the nation. If you choose to go to OSU, you're choosing a school with a name that's well known, both in the workplace and in the college community. Few students ever regret their time at Ohio State, and most consider their college experience to be among the best offered in the Big Ten and the country.
