4 College Freshman

Diversity: No one cares about diversity

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's SO. EXPENSIVE. I'm going to be in debt for decades and I'm not sure if it will be worth it.

Off-Campus Housing: Finding an apartment in a decent neighborhood can be really difficult. They're generally cheaper than the dorms, though.

Guys & Girls: There's so freaking many students that it can be hard to actually meet people, but I guarantee you're not the only one on campus who likes [thing].

Athletics: You have to at least pretend to care about sports. Also, the phys ed classes are good, but just going to the gym by yourself can be pretty intimidating.

Nightlife: Thirsty Thursday. Most near-campus housing is REALLY LOUD on the weekends which can make sleeping difficult if you want to go to bed before like 3 AM.

Majors: I think only the Fisher College of Business has a special separate application. Otherwise, just go to your academic adviser and fill out the forms to add your major.

Parking: Parking on campus isn't bad, but driving on campus is. Roads are often crowded with students who don't/won't wait for cars at crosswalks and force everyone to stop for them for minutes at a time.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received enough scholarships to feasibly afford to attend here as an out-of-state student, but they're only good for eight semesters maximum so if you don't graduate "on time" then you're screwed.

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.
