3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The main concern for me is at times there can be a lot of non-student on campus causing problems.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I have received a lot of help as far getting help for applying for aid. And have received aid from the school.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: School and staff are very active in enforcing schools policies.

Nightlife: I really don't go out. But the few people that I know that does they seem to like it.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The Columbus area is alive and friendly to college students. I would be perfectly happy with the possibility of establishing myself here after I graduate

Health & Safety: There are emergency poles within sight at any point on campus, and the crime rates on campus are extremely low. I wouldn't go off campus alone at night. The health center is very convenient and welcoming to students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The policies at our school are strict but not forced upon students to the point where they hate it. For the most part, students obey the rules so that the rules don't have to be enforced on them, and everyone is happy and loves it here.

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are so many people from different backgrounds, most people are very accepting and friendly toward everyone.

2 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Would not choose the same major again. Too much focus on the same things in multiple classes (lots of cardio and public health stuff). Very hard to find a job with just a undergrad degree in Exercise Science. After talking to people who majored in the same thing at other schools they received a much better rounded education in Exercise Science and felt more prepared for the work force.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Certain prereq classes and there grades are considered. You also have to state what you plan to do with your degree and what you've done to prepare yourself so far for the degree. Overall not a hard process.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Lot's of off campus housing options. You just have to look out for yourself against the landlords. Never count of getting your security deposit back even if you are the best tenants.

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.
