3 College Freshman

Transportation: The busses are clean but the schedules tend to be unreliable. The cabs are overpriced and sometimes are not the nicest or safest choices.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are not generally issues on campus, but down High Street and in the Frat and Sorority areas there is sometimes trouble, as well as areas with off campus housing.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There are so many different groups of people on campus. There is an annual drag show for the LGBTQ community and other students who want to help them. There are plenty of student organizations for people from every background imaginable.

Local Atmosphere: There is always something going on Campus, whether it is at the Union or in the residence halls. We take trips to places like Mad RIver Mountain and Detroit, and we bring cool people from the zoo to campus. There is all of Columbus and free bus service to get there as well. There is plenty of campus security and police should you ever need assistance. The fitness centers are in great consition and easily accessible, and all of the walking helps to keep you in shape.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is never any problem finding anything to do.

Weather: At the beginning it was very hot, the fall months were wonderful. Currently though it is very cold and snowy, but it is an atypical winter for Ohio. Generally it doesn't get as cold as it has been. The only thing about the weather here is that it changes frequently.

College Freshman

Transportation: I don't do long distance traveling, so I don't not know the answer.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life, they only just recently started pledging, but from what I have observed it isn't too difficult to get in. There are houses just off campus and they are large, fairly nice houses.

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.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
