2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I fear daily about how I am going to pay for this education. My best tips to potential bobcats is DO GOOD IN HIGH SCHOOL. There are lots of scholarships Ohio University can offer if you have good grades and good ACT scores. Just try and you're bound to get some money. Also, get a JOB and SAVE UP! Another tip, if you get money for graduation, don't blow it on a new pair of shoes or something silly like that.. save it. Save all your pennies.

Off-Campus Dining: Athens is a foodie paradise, there are so many options ranging from asian to mexican to american to italian and just about everything in between. There are plenty of fast food restaurants too. The best recommendation I can offer is Good Fellas Pizza. There is nothing that compares to Good Fellas.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: It's very expensive, however, the food is pretty good.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are multiple physical therapy majors offered at Ohio University, but for my specific one, in the College of Arts and Sciences, it is a biology focused major, and the rigor is difficult.

5 College Freshman

Academics: This is a selective school, and it has been around for over 200 years, the academics are high quality.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Athens is a very social school and once friday hits you'll know why.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't really know how to rate this one, solely because how do you rate it when you've never experienced it first hand? I know that when you enroll in the university, you are required to take a 6 hour course on sexual assault/alcohol and that there are many support groups on campus.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Its a very diverse campus, you can see just about every different type of person.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I don't really pay attention to that, it doesn't matter to me.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Ive never lived off campus, but from what I understand, its good.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: My boyfriend is a football player for OU, so of course I am very partial to Bobcat Football, however all the other athletic events are great as well, and there are plenty of recreational and club sports to suit just about anyone's style.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's extremely easy to get around OU, and Athens as a whole. It really is college town, USA. There is also ALWAYS something going on on campus or in Athens. Its never boring.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I LOVE OHIO UNIVERSITY. I've never felt so at home away from my home.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't seen the off-campus housing.

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.
