4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The university is so enormous that honestly we have so much diversification that we cover pretty much every type of student look, interest, dress code, social life, and relationship status. This is one of the reasons I actually love OSU because there are so many different types of people and uniqueness is omnipresent.

Academics: The academics are great here. My professors (for the most part) seemed truly concerned with helping their students, the curriculum varies on difficulty depending on your major but business isn't too hard, the registration process is pretty easy thanks to Buckeye Link, the workload is manageable if you manage your time, and popular study areas include 11th floor of Thompson Library or Dorm lobbies.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't really done much with my major considering I'm taking prereqs because I'm a freshmen, but I currently just aspire to graduate from college with great knowledge and experience that will immediately but me into a job,

Majors: The only really hard part is getting into the required classes you need to in order to apply for the Business College before sophomore year. The most important criteria is definitely your GPA, which is required to only be at least a 3.0. Not sure if it has an abnormal application process, but for tips I would just say study and take the required classes and you'll do fine.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone on campus seems to be concerned with staying fit, our facilities are top quality and our sport teams have great skill and sense of representation.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It is not very strict at all. Safety is the main issue they care about. Other then that they pretty much let us be.

Weather: IT SUCKS FROM NOVEMBER TO MARCH

Greek Life: They do not do a whole lot around campus. They live in huge houses while the Black Greek students don't even have houses on campus.

Computers: During the day when most people need them they are extremely crowded.

Off-Campus Housing: Most people move off campus for their own privacy and freedom. But the prices keep rising.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: They need to work out their quarter to semester transition first.

Scholarships: If you don't receive the initial scholarships when you apply, there is like no opportunity to get them at any other time. I got nothing.

Nightlife: Last year there was a lot more going on but most of the time if nothing is happening it is because of the weather.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The buses run frequently until about midnight, and on weekends they come every thirty minutes and take the long route.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: The workload is intense for engineering majors but it wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the caliber of classes that we're meant to take a semester. The transfer from quarters to semesters caused the school to stuff tons of information into a semester and the professors have a hard time managing their time. If they can't manage their time it is almost impossible for me to manage mine.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: It depends on which engineering major it is. The highly competitive majors turn away people that have applied over and over again. And then they have to waste money on retaking classes that they already passed just to keep their GPA up high enough to apply. While others let anybody who wants to join in at whilm.

Drug Safety: Either you find people who do it our you don't. You may overhear people talking about it but if you don't go looking for it you won't find it.

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.
