5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at ohio state can not be beat, football saturdays are electric and like nothing around. The students and alumni are extremely into supporting the buckeyes in every sport. Even smaller sports are well attended by students and are a lot of fun.

Overall Experience: This comment is about the libraries, there are certain people that occupy 2, 3, 4 ... areas of studying for their friends that are not there. They put some papers, a notebook to pretend the seat is occupied while others students walking around trying to find a place to sit. That is selfishness and inconsideration, and lack of respect. Every time I see that when I look it was an Asian. They need to respect other students rights and behave in a studying environment.

Weather: Weather this semester has been beautiful. 65+ and sunny so far almost every day.

Scholarships: Did not receive any scholarships/grants, and barely received any loans at all because of parents income. Paying for my education by myself, I do not know how I will pay for school when I am out of out-of-pocket money.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Transferring from community college, the difficulty of courses is not even comparable and I feel I will earn a much better education.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The University is surrounded with a whole lot of off-campus housing with a fair rent. Issues with and theft and robbery rarely happens and are informed to the rest by the police. Also the campus is surrounded with a lot of hangouts for food.

Computers: There are not many places to print on campus, so you have to walk kind of far if you want to print. The network and reliability are always good, I have never had my internet go down. At the main library, there are not that many computers to use but most people bring their own.

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.
