5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: off campus dining is great! lots of options just a short walk from campus

4 College Freshman

Academics: professors really care about the classes and are always quick to respond to emails. there moslty very knowledgeable as well. however advisors are a hit or miss, some are great some are awful. i had a real bad one named paul heimberger when i was a const managment major but now that im in architecture i have a great advisor. good balance of partying and studying although the partying seems to supercede, which i enjoy. its a large school so registration and all that can seem overwhelimng but the edcuation here is very solid

Greek Life: I love being involved in Greek Life on campus. I feel like it really helped me to get more involved on campus.

Academics: The university sets high standards for its students. The professors make sure to challenge you, but they help you as much as you need to.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of homeless people and criminals that seem to be around the outskirts of campus which make it sometimes uncomfortable to walk around, especially by yourself. But there is always something to do and there is always a lot of shops and restraunts to go to

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.
