3 College Sophomore

Academics: I am Undecided in Health Sciences and Professions still trying to find out what I am most passionate about. Most of the classes that I have taken have been a big help in getting me where I need to be. They have been helping me decide what I do and do not like. There have been a few pointless classes that have really been in the way.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Right now I am still deciding what I want to pursue. My academic adviser has been the biggest help to me. She has looked at my interest and has worked with my classes to get me one step closer to choosing a major I enjoy. She was very easy to talk to and there were multiple times when I could talk to her with out making an apt.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did receive some financial aid. Most of if though was loans. It would be nice to have a little more options for receiving grants and scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had a great time in the dorm that I lived in. Everyone was super nice and social you just have to make an effort with who you live with. My dorm room was a little small but it was a single and it's not like I was in there all the time basically just for sleep and studying.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses that I have taken have been overall average with the few that are challenging like math courses. The professors are very helpful you just have to take the initiative and ask them for it if needed.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel like there are a wide range of internship prospects for different majors. The career center and the services that are offered are very helpful. Students just need to take more advantage of what is offered to help accomplish more things.

Health & Safety: Ohio University is a big campus, yes; but I don't feel unsafe in it. The only thing that scares me is walking alone in the dark but that scares me anywhere, really. OU even has a required class that every first-year student must take regarding alcohol abuse and sexual assault, they do not take either of these topics lightly.

Facilities: Ohio University is an old campus so some things are outdated, but they have been doing a lot of construction to modernize a few things yet still keep their old charm that everybody loves. Other than that, the campus is beautiful and I can't think of anything I would change about it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You can really tell with the atmosphere and instructors that they really want you to succeed and are good at what they do. Classes are normally fairly large and there is a wide variety of them offered.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A lot of the people that I know or have heard of that have graduated from my school or work for my school are still all about it. I can't wait to be a part of something like that, they're all like a big family.

Scholarships: I actually was accepted past the deadlines for the fall semester scholarships so I'm not really sure how well they go. The financial aid process went smoothly though, they specified what they needed from me during the process and reviewed those forms ASAP.

Diversity: The thing about Ohio University that I noticed the first time I visited was that it was equally diverse. Most of the campus is made up of Asians/Chinese and whites, but I have seen quite a few of other ethnicities. I don't think it's very diverse on the religion or sexual orientation aspect, however.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Every event and night out at Ohio University is a fun one and not one you'll forget. It definitely adds to the college experience of a lifetime, that's for sure!

The majority of OU students can never envision themselves going to any other school but Ohio University. Whether it's the unique atmosphere, great classes, people they've met, or a combination of several factors, Bobcats are passionate about their school and feel confident about the choice they made. Once they graduate, it's inevitable they will return more than once to recapture the feeling of strolling along Court Street and hanging out with great friends over a beer or game of pool.

Though students may gripe over Friday afternoon classes, strict resident assistants, or how they can't seem to get any work done because they live above a bar, students are still happy to be there and know that the good times will greatly outnumber the bad. It's safe to say that OU is an excellent choice because it doesn't just offer a first-rate education, but also provides students with the necessary life skills needed to survive out in the real world. While not everyone may leave OU 100 percent satisfied with their college experience, most graduate from the University confident and ready for what lies ahead of them and also a little sad to be saying goodbye to some of the best times of their lives. What's most important about college is you make the most of wherever you choose to go. Thankfully, OU gives each individual many opportunities and amenities to enjoy this special phase of their lives.
