4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everything's centred around the football team which makes the school spirit pretty awesome. The rugby team is also pretty great. The rec center is new, and it's amazing.

Athletics: The athletic facilities are great. We've recently received a new recreation center which has so much for the average Joe to go out and exercise. The team spirit on campus is tremendous, everybody is waiting for that next big game for any sport against any team.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We're a Division I school so the quality of the teams is usually pretty good. Men's basketball, soccer, hockey, and football have all experienced HUGE turnarounds in the time that I've been here and have stayed competitive. Same goes for women's volleyball, basketball, and soccer.

What's bad is that many people care more about Ohio State and Michigan. That's an incredibly annoying issue in itself but I'll spare you that rant. However, when there's a BIG game for any of our teams, and word gets out enough, people will support. So it's not the best, but for a school in the MAC I'd say our school support is decent. If you go here please don't be that guy at one of our events in an OSU sweatshirt. Just don't. Be a tool on your own time.

Facilities are good. The Stroh Center is one of the million new buildings that opened my freshman year and is a top notch arena. The football stadium (The Doyt) is not very nice, but the athletic center attached to it is amazing. Ice Arena isn't great either but that place is consistently packed so I've had too much fun to care about what it looks like.
