4 College Sophomore

Academics: I've been here for one semester and one of the biggest things I was worried about was not being able to understand the professors, and that wasn't an issue for me- at least not yet. The workload depends on the classes you're taking, some require a lot of work, others not so much. Registration for my first semester classes was really stressful since I didnt really know what was going on, but registration for second semester was sooo much easier; because there's a tool you can use to put in the classes you need and the breaks you want and it plans out all the different possibilities you can choose from.

Scholarships: It seems so far the financial aid situation has not been too great. Basically most of the scholarship applications are part of the admission application which is nice but at the same time, sooo many people apply I feel like you have such slim chances of getting anything. Plus I've noticed that most are based off of financial need but their idea if financial need is not reasonable.

Facilities: Most of the facilities around campus have been or are being renovated. The RPAC (the really big gym) is pretty awesome, tons of equipment and activities are offered there. The student union is really nice and the library is huge and a great place to study.

2 College Junior

Parking: The parking permits are expensive. If you want to use a meter for a few hours, you will not be happy with the cost either. For all the money that we pay in tuition, it would be great to have better parking for a lower or free cost.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Parking is strictly enforced. The parking is managed by a large company and I feel they are really out to make money. They go though the lot every morning checking for cars without permits. The honor code is also taken VERY seriously at the College of Vet Med. It is viewed as the basis of professionalism.

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.

4 College Sophomore

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

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.
