4 College Freshman

Scholarships: As an out-of-state student it ended up being cheaper for me to go here than to my home state university. The national buckeye scholarship is pretty easy to get. They did a great job with helping me get loans and handling my external scholarships.

Campus Housing: Freshmen are required to live on campus. Some dorms are really nice and school just renovated many of its dorms, so in general, they are nicer now.

Nightlife: If you're 21+, there are many bars around campus for you. They normally have specials on weekdays and people love hanging out in bars on weekend nights. Football Saturdays are crazy here. For people under 21, there are bars downtown that let underage people in and there are many house parties around from thursday-saturday.

Weather: I'm from Chicago originally, and I just hate Ohio weather. In Philadelphia we can get four season in just one day. The temperature is always all over the place. In Chicago if the new says one thing it's usually stays in that range. Ohio state is unpredictable.

Diversity: OSU is a huge campus, which leds to a huge diversity. I have seen almost every ethnic group walking around campus. Even though most of the students are white rich kids, there are still many events that celebrate others races and groups of people. It's not as equality diverse as I would like, But I'm still a proud Buckeye.

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants are very interesting and very school spirited, which I like. However, some of the prices are a little expensive. My favorite place to go is Chumley's. I love the atmosphere and the food is incredible! They cater to many different types of people, and have a great selection of beer. I always try new ones every time I go!

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.
