4 College Sophomore

Parking: I am going to a regional campus as of now, so parking is not an issue at all. However when i do transfer to Columbus campus, parking will be a major hassle on-campus, but west campus will have plenty of spots. A bus will be necessary to take to get to classes.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Many professors have thick accents that make learning the material more difficult than it should be, but then again there are some star professors out there.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: OSU is very athletic based, there are hundreds of clubs, intramural sports, several libraries, OSU is very tradition based.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't receive as much aid as I would like from OSU but I make it work and they are very easy to work with.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Policy enforcement is extremely heavy although most students don't abide by it. Visibility is heavy only once off-campus, and peer pressure is non-existent.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls at Ohio State are extremely attractive. Everyone is friendly and they dress rather comfortable but not slutty.

Transportation: We have local campus shuttles and city busses that come around quite frequently. Both are free for students and get you around rather well. Taxis are also available for the rate at which they drive. The service is pretty good actually.

Drug Safety: I have not been seeing this type of activity in the areas that I have been in. I understand that it may be out there but it is not my priority and nor do I intend it to be. My education is very important that I pay for, peer pressure does not concern me.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe this is one of the best School Campuses in the United States of America. I believe that the professors and faculty try very hard to help educate the students for the next stage of their lives. I would absolutely make this choice all over again to attend this University as hard as it may be to study here and obtain good grades.

Weather: The local weather can always affect your campus experience but it's still a matter of choice on what you want to do with these experiences, no matter rain, snow or sunshine, you still need to be in class and study and get from facility to facility to take care of your studies and education.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The major that I have chosen is still fairly new. This is a good thing because it is a little smaller and the faculty is very involved no mater what the major may be but at our University it gives students a chance to get closer to the faculty and learn things a little more one on one. As the major continues to expand these additional students will also be assets to the students who have been involved with the major for a longer period of time.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I believe the academics offered at our school is one of the best in the country. The registration process is rather organized and simplified. The curriculum is going to be based around your majors and the workload can be rather intense but these are necessary items for your future success of your education and future career.

Campus Strictness: I believe in the areas that the school policies have strictness that this is important for the overall safety of the students. It is important for the liability of the school to be strict in the areas required.

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.
