College Freshman

Facilities: I've been attending Ohio State for the past year as a continuing education student. I can rate certain aspects of campus, but being an adult with an off-campus home and PTSD, I don't tend to spend time on campus outside of classes, except to the RPAC, which is fantastic.

5 College Junior

Facilities: At Ohio State we have traditions and pride which I suspect would rival any organization in the country.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school gives us enough rope to hang ourselves with.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have very little to complain about.

5 College Junior

Academics: Ohio State is very highly regarded in the sciences and nursing.

5 College Junior

Academics: There are so many opportunities that you can always find multiple classes open with multiple professors. The curriculum follows that of higher education standards in Ohio.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life is absolutely a valuable asset to the student body and community.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The few houses that I have lived in, or that friends have lived in, have all been great!

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is always something to do if you are not working or in class

4 College Junior

Diversity: We draw people from all over the world, it seems.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I loved the campus dining! Options are virtually everywhere and almost any type of food is provided. There is a steep price however.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls at this school are all quite attractive. The dress is very casual (not including greek life) and relationships are easily made.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is convenient and nice and provides you with a community. It is more expensive generally than off-campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Lots of good options on the general meal plan. Campus food is overpriced though and, despite the variety, you will get just a bit tired of the same places.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: It is all pretty convenient and gives you the tools you need. It is nice that there is a library open 24 hours a day.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am confident that I picked a good major for me with Computer Science & Engineering. The field has a good job market, and the university and department provides you with opportunities in the job search.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: You just need to go into the CSE Undergraduate Advising Office and quickly fill out the application to the major. I think you generally WILL get in IF you meet the GPA requirements, which I think are reasonable.

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.
