Weather: Columbus weather is very odd. But the winters are the worst

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great you get to interact with other students who have the same dreams and goals as you so it makes staying on track easier.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The Biology program can be a little stressful with all the sciences that are needed. It's important to focus on science and math in high school.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: There are a lot of individuals in the Biology program. I enjoy the program but I do not enjoy the math that comes with it. The sciences deal with a large workload, which keep an individual very busy.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are older and can be crowded. There is a lot of construction going on that is updating the campus. The social atmosphere is excellent although the cost can be a little must such as paying for your dorm, but on top of that having to pay for your laundry.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Ohio State has a large acceptance of diverse students. There is at least one group if not more for individuals of the same origin.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't have a problem applying for financial aid and I got help with tuition.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: When it is cold, it is hard to get up to go to class or want to go outside. If it's too hot, going to class is not a fun walk to get to.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining halls are always open and the buffet style is great. Fresh Express, Sloopys, and Burritos offer a variety of food that works with your meal plan.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ohio State is a large school. They have plenty of group activities and fairs that students can partake in. The only reason I maybe would not choose it again is how big it is. The programs are great though and it gives all its students so many different opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's kind of hard to find good pot but alcohol is always available.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The games are a huge part of campus. Everyone is always in attendance and the teams are supported no matter what. The football and basketball team ave done great which leads to great school spirit.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's great except in the winter. It's very, very cold, but during the rest of the year it very rarely rains.

4 College Freshman

Parking: It's reasonable, but the inconvenience is that freshmen cannot park in the garages.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer labs are always full. We must pay for printing. The network does not always work, but it is fast. It's nice to have your own computer in case you can't get one in the library.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The computers are fine but usually very full in thompson library. Go to the SEL/18th ave Library for easy access!

4 College Freshman

Transportation: We have easy bus systems, the CABS and COTA, both of which are free. It helps when you live far away like in west campus.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys here tend to be extremely athletic but often very shallow. Many are into sex and partying more than friendship.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I love our school. We have traditions like beat Michigan Week, Mirror Lake jump and singing Carmen Ohio that make OSU feel like family.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: We have an amazing social scene and fantastic facilities. However, North Campus is always under construction.

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.
