College Junior

Greek Life: I really am not familiar with the Greek Life at all. I am sorry I cannot comment more.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Near the college there are always things to do. The college students have their own little town almost. Filled with bars, restaurants, unique clothing and accessory shops, there is something for every student to enjoy. Wander a little further from school, Columbus offers many other attractions such as the Columbus museum of Art and COSI, as well as the Franklin Park Conservatory.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I have eaten on campus a few times and have not been too impressed.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: As far as I know it is good, but I have not submerged myself into many major specific courses yet.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are decent, except some math professors can be fairly weak. Workload is a little above average but not too overwhelming and curriculum can be interesting and boring, it depends on the class.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Connection to the server on campus could be of much better quality, I think it needs some fixing.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety could always be better anywhere, but crime is difficult to avoid all the time.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I do not participate in night life.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: As far I know it is okay, but not living on campus makes it difficult for me to know the best answer to these questions.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not experienced drug use on campus, just some talk about it, then again I do not live on campus.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I never really eat on or around campus as I live at home and bring food if I must.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Sometimes rain and snow make for the commute to campus a hassle. And traffic can get backed up in one area on the way to campus, but it is not too bad at all.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: No greek life is relevant on the regional campus I attend.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not pay much attention to sports on the regional campus or the athletic facilities.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Renovations have taken place on campus all year so far, and every facility I have used is splendid.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are many on campus events, and the student center, library, and tutoring centers are always available if needed.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I am very happy with the environment of my school.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not qualify for financial aid from my school, because my parents still claim me on their taxes, and their income is too high for me to qualify. However, I am paying for college myself and any aid will be extremely helpful!

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.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The Psychology program at OSU is one of the better programs this school has to offer. The workload is fair and interesting. Internships can and will line right up.

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.
