Transportation: Buses Are Great – Personally, I like to walk around campus for the most part. However, the bus systems are excellent. They run fairly often, go just about everywhere on campus, and both the university and city buses are free for students. You just have to swipe your ID sometimes.

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is very important but not everyone is involved in it. Personally, I'm involved in Agricultural Greek Life and it is nothing like I thought it would be.

Drug Safety: You can find drugs if you want them, but it's mostly low-key stuff like marijuana on campus. Since it's college, of course there's plenty of alcohol.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have only started taking my major classes this semester, so I don't really have a good idea of what the program is like yet.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The psychology program is a very easy process to get into. It is very simple, you just fill out an application and then meet with your advisor to declare your major and decide between B.A. or B.S.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not done an internship yet, but I plan on doing one in the near future. Ohio State does a good job of helping you find one and get set up.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in a house right off campus, so it only takes about 10 minutes to get to class, which is awesome. Our house was just renovated this past year, so everything is brand new and very nice.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a sophomore and just recently changed my major to psychology, so I don't have a great idea yet. But, so far I absolutely love my classes and my professors and the school does a great job with setting up internship and research opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: awsome. We have so many choices. I live on High St. Who has not herd about that hot spot? There are so many places to eat and hang out that I don't know how many there are. I don't have a favorite because we love to try new places. A plus in my opinion.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls here differ. Some guys tend to really live up to the typical "frat boy." However, some are just really cool, friendly, sweet and fun guys. The same goes for girls. There are the standard "out all night, party girls" but there are also tons of really nice, outgoing girls too. Either way, you will definitely fit in somewhere. Styles of campus vary but its all a matter of personal preference and comfort. Interests vary as well. Get involved with something close to your heart or a program related to your major. Just go with the flow and enjoy!

Local Atmosphere: Local atmosphere is very diverse. There are a wide range of shops and attractions but its amazing, nonetheless. Shops like the main street adjacent to campus and you're bound to find an amazing place to eat along the way. Not too far from campus are malls, cultural areas, a quaint art district, and larger shopping facilities, all within reach using the convenient bus systems.

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.
