3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot to do and see around campus. It is a great area for outdoor activities.

Computers: They tell us that we have so many free prints per student but I have never found a place where prints cost me nothing. For the most part unless you are in certain majors you pay. The internet has been known to have many issues around campus but wireless is accessible everywhere.

Health & Safety: The police are a visible presence but they don't get involved in parties unless they are getting out of hand. I never feel unsafe walking home at night. It is also great knowing that campus police and local police are working together.

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.
