Drug Safety: You can be involved in drugs but you dont have to be. There is harly any pressure and you will not be singled out if you say no. There are plenty of other activities going on around campus that can be clean without hindering your college career.

Weather: The weather is normally very nice; I just happen to not like winter, and I am from the snowbelt so I am used to heavy, heavy snow. Walking around campus with colder weather is going to be slightly frustrating, but I will have to find out, as I have heard COlumbus does not get as cold as where I am from.

Local Atmosphere: Living in Columbus means having unlimited opportunities to go to fine dining locations with a variety of price points, many local stores, shopping opportunities like Easton and Polaris Shopping Centers, which are some of the finest in Ohio, and there are many attractions, like the Columbus Blue Jackets (NHL) and even our own OSU football team. Everyone is friendly and often depends on students for their businesses since there are so many of us, and the city is clean, safe, and nicely laid out.

Nightlife: With High Street right off campus (basically on campus), it is easy to get to many places, and with Gateway nearby, there are numerous events to take advantage of, all a bus ride or walk away.

Campus Housing: The housing can seem sort of crowded sometimes, but there are many different options for all types of students and preferences, roommates work together well most of the time, and it is easy to contact someone if there are problems.

Transportation: The bussing system works well, but if you don't know how to read the maps and times then it is very difficult. Getting around campus is easy, but off campus is hard because to get to a place 20 minutes away in a car is about a 1 1/2 hour bus ride. Ride sharing with other students works well, taxis are easy to call and use, and the busses work very well and are clean and on time; it is just a matter of getting to know the system

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus and there are numerous escort, safety, transportation, and police services, updates, and resources. I feel safe and secure. With the health center, they are never open for appointments, book up immediately, don't really advertise themselves, and are hard to reach.

Athletics: Sports play an enormous role in campus life. With a leading football team and very popular football athletes, the games are central to the weekends and all year round. Also, other sports are free as students and we are encouraged to go and they are fun and upbeat.

Computers: There are plenty of areas for access to computers or printers. There's easy access but it is suggested for all students to have their own computers because of the largeness of the student life.

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.
