3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What really drew me to my school was the great academic opportunity offered here. When I arrived I fell in love with the beauty of the campus and the astounding school spirit. My only complaints would be the poor dining options, and the poor living conditions for the price.

Campus Strictness: Overall, campus is very understanding. Lenient in some areas and strict in some, but it's very justified.

Computers: There are a lot of areas where computer labs can be found, print is $0.09 a print which is a little inconvenient but not too bad. The wifi availability is very spotty and goes out very frequently.

Campus Housing: I really like living on campus. My dorm is a little bit old, but everything is being renovated. The food is great and so are the people.

Athletics: I didn't know what I was getting myself into in regards to the Buckeye spirit around campus. Everywhere you go there is someone sporting spirit wear, and Buckeye pride is contagious and highly enthusiastic. Our football team has gone 24-1 since our new coach arrived (a big deal), and fans are outrageously supportive.

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.
