College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't drink or do drugs, so I don't know much about the scene on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It honestly depends where you are on campus. Some facilities are fantastic and some are not. Some have air conditioning, while others lack it, some are close to classes but far from food, and some are close to food but far from classes. Some dorms have private bathrooms, some have communal, some are spacious, and some are very small.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our athletics are great and we have wonderful facilities. Overall there are three facilities, one of which is the largest in the nation.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It wasn't a hassle to receive a scholarship from the school if you qualify, but it isn't near enough money to cover the costs.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: On campus you are pretty safe and cut off. Once you leave campus it gets to be more and more dangerous the farther you go.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't party much, so therefore I do not know much about the nightlife at my school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to choose from and a variety of choices. Most are pretty affordable.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The classes are very diverse, there are plenty of majors to choose from. Excellent academics.

1 College Junior

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel pretty safe on campus. There are so many people at this college that there's always someone else out there. And everything is pretty well lit and there are a lot of blue lights.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The football games are so much fun and worth it to go, even if you don't enjoy football the school spirit is incredible. So many people go. And there are so many other cool sports to go watch like synchronized swimming and gymnastics. And the athletic facilities are really good. The RPAC is the best but the JO facilities are also convenient and have the necessary equipment.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are a good number of computers available but most of them will always be taken up, especially during finals week. The wifi has good speed but it comes and goes sometimes. Having a personal printer is really ideal because no one wants to go outside and print something in the cold.

Majors: To get into my program there weren't really any challenges that I encountered. Extracurricular activities were really important as were grades but it's also a mix of everything that counts.

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.
