Campus Strictness: There are many safety policies that are followed on campus and watched. Students do get in trouble for doing things they are not supposed to be doing.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am in two different programs. Both provide a wide opportunity of classes to take as well as many job and research opportunities. I have been selected to study abroad with other students in my program. One complaint is the cost and trying to pay for all these opportunities.

Majors: There are many opportunities for internships but I am having a hard time finding one for my specific interest. Most of the ones I have found are not payed and require at least 200 hours to receive credit.

Majors: The best advice I can offer is to ask if the major you're heading into will have any curriculum changes to it prior to your graduation date.

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.
