College Sophomore

Academics: I am currently not attending classes until September 2014.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a lot of amenities available to students, such as tutoring and learning centers. The registration process was fairly easy and accessible. The professors seem very interested in helping the students.

Academics: The Physics and Math department are not all that great at OSU. The professors don't have very good ratings and some of them you can't even count on to teach. It is also difficult to communicate with a lot of them. There is one academic advisor that you DO NOT want to go to. But the other one is AWESOME. (Not going to say names here).

I've heard that pro-school for MechE is a lot better than pre-engineering.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Again, the Physics and Math department are not good. But there is a huge variety of other classes, awesome help/tutoring programs through the school, lots of study areas, and an academic success center.
