4 College Junior

Transportation: The shuttles are amazing. Always on time and making it to class from parking miles away is easy with this. If you're driving through campus and it's busy, expect to be there a while. There is always construction on our roads. The parking cost is ridiculous but i pay it because i don't skip class.

Health & Safety: There are police everywhere however, a lot of rapes have occurred this semester alone. The number of rapes and attacks on females is increasingly large. I never walk alone after the sun goes down and always have mace on me. There are the "blue button machines" where if you need a police officer or feel unsafe you hit it and they'll be right there however they're slow and you're better off running to safety.

5 College Junior

Academics: The professors in both the communications major and women studies are the best. They really work with the students. Email them and you're getting an answer within an hour or so. They are well-educated and professional. The curriculum is tough but the job opportunities and internships being in such a major are everywhere! The workload of WGSST (women studies) is a lot of reading but it's all interesting.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Besides Adderall, I don't really hear much about the students taking bad drugs. The policy is strictly enforced and many teachers are aware when students are taking adderall. If you're caught with it OSU kicks you out no questions asked. Alcohol is clearly used due to being such a big school however, I work so much drinking isn't an interest so i stay away from it.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Our sports are some of the best in the nation. The coaches keep in contact with all the students and keep us affiliated and informed on what's going on. The fan support is tremendous and our school spirit is clearly the best! The facilities are always being updated and keeping our athletes the most fit.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is cheaper then on campus and so worth it. you can get your own place for cheap and have total freedom (and responsibility) by your soph year

Campus Strictness: Dorms are chill. Always a back entry that is unsupervised for weekend nights when someone needs help getting home.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek is great, but b/c of the off campus housing situation there are a TON of house parties every weekend. Greek is great but not necessary to have a good time.

Off-Campus Dining: high street is full of different restaurants. Search around and I'm sure there is one for everyone

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Buses are free with OSU ID and get you most places you need to go. Car is good for getting groceries.

4 College Senior

Academics: The undergraduate social work program was filled with great instructors and courses. I enjoyed being in field placement the most, and it has made me a better student and confident in the skills and knowledge I have developed while pursuing an education at Ohio State.

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.
