4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I loved OSU I attended the osu newark branch. My only problem was with how they transferred credits.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first school had a lot of activities to attend but there was a lot of disrespectful student that were at my school. They ruined games of all types. But the teachers and advisors were great at helping if you really wanted to take your schooling seriously.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ohio State offers something for anyone! The size may deter some, but it's easy to find a niche that suits you on this diverse campus. There are hundreds of clubs and sports programs, and the atmosphere surrounding OSU is always one of pride and school spirit. The academics are certainly doable, but they are no walk in the park either.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: OSU offers a variety of support/resources for all its students. From mental health to social opportunities, there is a bevy of information to help you through any situation.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've really enjoyed school so far. The only thing I would change is the wide range of random extra classes we are required to take. I see no need for myself, a computer science engineering student, to take sports or music classes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am really enjoying my time at the Ohio State University. I have never had a boring day on campus, unless it rains, then its super boring being stuck in a classroom. But the free food, the excellent professors and the amazing people you meet make the experience a little better. Tuition is high but that is because there are so many places available for students. One of my favorite experiences happened the week before classes began. My friend and I had entered a raffle to win this giant basket full of OSU goodies and a chance to meet the mascot, Brutus. I simply did it cause everyone else was doing it too. Who would have thought that I was one of the few candidates to actually win the basket! It was definitely a great start to the beginning of my college career.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm very happy to have been accepted and enrolled in Ohio State. Although I did give some thought to other schools, I always felt that I would most enjoy attending and graduating from Ohio State. The courses are exciting and challenging, the campus is vibrant and dynamic, and the people are friendly and passionate about the university.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being a Buckeye gives me something to believe in and be a part of. It's not just about the national championships or our famous rivalry traditions with The School Up North (Michigan), it's that fact that there are so many different people who have something in common. My dance program is filled with the most eclectic artists that I get to feed off of and grow with. No days are the same and I am growing more than I an ever thought possible. As someone who was skeptical about whether this school was right for me, I can say this university is everything I could have possibly wanted in a school and more. In two years alone I have been afforded amazing opportunities to perform in Columbus's most prestigious theaters, work with renown choreographers like Stephan Koplowitz to help create and shape pieces for an historical campus event, and choreograph my own works for the entire university to see. This upcoming year I am so lucky to say that I was chosen as one of 11 dancers in the whole department of 100 to tour Salvador, Brazil in a traveling repertory company. As a junior in college, I will be able to experience what it is like to be in a professional travelling company and also experience cultural exchange. Because of my university I've broken down the walls of the box I thought I existed in and have realized that being a Dance major truly means I can be anything that I want to be. I have fallen in love with Dance Film and Videography because of my school's program and have declared a Video Arts Minor. I am learning skills to make me not only a well rounded student and dancer, but also a well rounded and sufficient individual. Of all of the schools that I applied to, Ohio State University is the school that has made me wake up every single day and feel limitless because of all the endless possibilities. Being a Buckeye makes me who I am today.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a minority student, it is very hard to fill into the not cuturally diverse community. Some people have never seen people of different ethnicities before. The professor are pretty horrible, they lack interest and care for the students or the subject they are teaching. It is obvious most of the professor only teach because they are required to for research, master's and doctorate programs.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have been on campus three times and I fall more in love with it every time I visit. During my Orientation, which is a two day ordeal, I got lost and wandered around for 30 minutes by myself and became very comfortable with the campus, even though I was terrified of never finding my way back. This was one of my favorite experiences on campus yet. I also love everyone's enthusiasm they have for Ohio State and it is contagious. There is a strong sense of community and unity that brings everyone together, which I think is very rare of such a large school. I would never dream of going to school anywhere but The Ohio State University.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love OSU, there's always something going on and plenty of people around. Being a big school, if you want to change your major to something kind of weird, OSU probably has it and you don't have to transfer to another school. Classes can be challenging but once you figure it out, become much easier to manage and succeed in. I've met some really amazing people and wouldn't have wanted a different first year of college.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
