4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I want to be one

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: OhIo State is filled with spirit. Each kid on campus LOVES the buckeyes which makes for close classes and an overall unity. It has gentrfied Columbus with its unique position in the inner city. The whole state of Ohio backs the Buckeyes making going to Ohio State feel like something special, and much more than just getting a degree, but being one with your state and many other states for that matter. Simply yell "O-H" in an any state and expect to find another buckeye with a proud yell of "I-O" back. Being a buckeye is not just a college experience, it's a lifestyle.

Drug Safety: There is a drug and alcohol policy on campus/residence halls. Students who live in the halls that are 21 or older are allowed to have alcohol in the room but are not allowed to share with others. Since the campus is near downtown student who are 18 and older have access to go out if they desire.

Overall Experience: It has been amazing to have had the opportunity to be in college studying what I love and getting a degree in the field. So far I have had the time of my life and have made amazing friends because of the classes and courses that I have taken. I also like the class sizes because it is easy to either stand out of blend in with the rest of the class.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from this University is a big deal for the job I will be looking for when I graduate. The dance major at Ohio State is seen as one of the best in the country. When looking for a job I will be fully prepared to take on any audition or interview.

Health & Safety: I would say that Ohio State does take caution whine comes to sexual assaults and dangers around campus. The school alerts the students through texts and email because they want to make sure the students are aware and safe.

Campus Housing: My first year I lived in Morrill Tower and it was a walk to class but I didn't mind that much and if I didn't feel like walking I could take the bus. Morrill was nice to live in because of all the people that I lived with and the friendliness of the floor. I knew everyone on my floor because we all kept our doors open to make friends. I know that my suite door was open the whole year because we always had people over just hanging out. It was one of the most fun things I had experienced in college. Some of my friends just couldn't understand how I knew so many people and it was mostly because of my residence hall.

Greek Life: I really don't know much about Greek life and what they do for the community. All I really know is that I have a few friends that are in a sorority and on Monday nights they have a meeting.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Ohio State has the RPAC, which is used by the students, and it has multiple levels of work out equipment. On the different levels there are gyms where basketball, volleyball, racket ball, indoor soccer, and other sports are played. It also has multipurpose rooms for dance, yoga, zumba, and cycling classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had the opportunity to learn from teachers and TA's. In my experiences with the teachers and TA's I have seen that they are interested in the student and well they do. They want to see the student succeed and pass the class and they want to do well so the student can do so. Sometimes in large classes it is hard for the teacher to know all of the students but they make an effort to try and get to know the student. That is something that made me feel that I chose the right school along with my major of study.

Campus Housing: Dorm life was a great way to meet friends but it is much cheaper to live off-campus.

Greek Life: I am a member and it positively impacted my college experience.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The games are always super fun but overshadow academics.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall I've enjoyed all my classes, and have maintained relatively good grades in all of them, with the exception of Chemistry. The chemistry department at OSU, is the absolute worst, they add beyond unnecessary work, as well as the curves put in place generally hurts the students rather than raise them, which is beyond frustrating.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Once you're in a program your teachers really care. Before then, you are weeded out.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: OSU has these blue phones all across campus so if theres ever an emergency you can just press the button and help will be on the way. They also have cars that will drive you home 2 mile radius of campus, and they have a wonderful alert system to notify students of potential threats.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Rooming all depends on who you end up living with, and how hard it is to deal with them. Fortunately if you're stuck with someone you can't stand, OSU makes it easy to switch with someone else.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life had many different options for everyone, so if someone isn't necessarily all about the typical "greek life scene", OSU has something there for them too.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: OSU football is beyond exciting and fun to watch.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many different organizations anyone can join, and I've met so many unique, fun, and caring people through them, that I'm so grateful for.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I know about the Greek Life but I am not in it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: All the people are fans and the pride is big.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This was one of the best experiences that I have in my live. I learn a lot and grow as a person and as a student. I recommended this University to all the people that want to learn and want a very different education.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I never considered OSU to be a top choice of mine when applying to colleges. I didn't really know a lot about it, and threw the application on at the end. When I went to visit, I knew this would be the college for me and I was not wrong. This school has become my new home and I'm grateful everyday that I applied to this college out of the blue. I am completely head over heels for Ohio State and all that it holds including Academics, Athletics, Student Orgs, and Facilities. You can always meet someone new on campus no matter where you are or what you're doing. I'm so proud of my school and the fact I get to attend such a highly respected college.

Overall Experience: Everyone knows a buckeye somewhere. Once you're out of school, interviewing will be smoother once people hear where you graduated from. With a network of over 500,000 alumni, you're bound to have someone in a higher occupational position meeting you. Besides that, everyone knows how famous Ohio State is and how it's a great school.

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.
