4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life can appear to be a little exclusive but being a part of it has shown me how selectivity is somewhat essential. I believe Greeks are often portrayed in a bad life but these assumptions are gradually exaggerated. I love being apart of Greek life but I can understand the stereotypes and judgments that the environment may portray. The Greek houses are for the most part well-kept and beautiful. You are not required to live-in but the option is a nice one.

Guys & Girls: There is a very wide variety of people that attend OSU. I believe that any type of individual no matter their interests can find their "niche" at school. Whether it be through athletics, greek life, clubs or even classes people can find others that share similar interests to create strong friendships.

Drug Safety: Among some groups of people drug use is quite prevalent. However, if you have no interest in partaking it is not hard to steer clear of this lifestyle and choose not to participate. So although drugs are accessible and somewhat abused in some capacities it is not an overwhelming problem that cannot be avoided.

Athletics: Ohio State is blessed to have some of the best varsity teams in this country. Every fall I look forward to football season and the excitement and spirit that is present on campus. All the athletic equipment on campus is state-of-the-art and able to be enjoyed by all. Although varsity athletics may overshadow a lot of things on campus, it is something that has become a tradition that every enjoys.

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.
