3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know too much about the Greek life at OSU. I just know it's there and there are a lot of options

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The football team is a national power house the basketball team is constantly in the NCAA tournament. This past year Ohio State won a national championship in football, wrestling, pistol, and synchronized swimming. The students and public are passionate about the buckeyes. We even just set the national record for most people who attended a SPRING game. It was unreal

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The city of columbus is constantly growing with many new opportunities. I say in a few years this will be the place to be

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a variety of students all unique in there own ways. There are 50,000 plus students so do not be discouraged if one does not like you

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are constant seminars and events to remind students of the problem of sexual assault. There are also many support lines the will help you through any incident you come across

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I just recently rented a house with a few friends of mine. The process was very simple and the rental companies are very easy to work with. My advice is to make sure you start early as it will get tougher to find places once you get past November and December

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not many bars or clubs around but there are still enough to have a good time

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A bunch of chain restaurants located on high street however a quick trip to the short north will open you up to a variety of unique dinning places

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It's a big campus so it's hard to monitor students 24/7. Some classes have attendance policies and some will not. Here they expect you to have some maturity and be responsible. If you choose not to then it only hurts yourself. dorm policies are pretty lenient. You are responsible for whoever you bring into the dorm

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There was a time when I was not sure what my financial aid situation would be and because of how many students attuned this school it was always a hassle to get a hold of someone. It took me almost ago week to finally reach someone but once I did I received the help I needed

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The commons are really convenient with many food options. The great thing about OSU is that there are tons of places the surround the campus as well so of your not really feeling the campus food there's always another option right around the corner

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Ohio State is a huge campus however it is not as big as everyone makes it out to be. All classes are generally in the same area which makes walking to them a breeze. The dorms are also great. Some that are very old with lost of tradition and then some that are brand new. Either way the dorms a a great place to meet people and possible life long connections. The dorms also do a great job in getting people involved with the community and each other.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a ton of food options for whatever your taste is and thats fantastic, but the block system is created to make it damn near impossible to fill a block so the university makes money. As annoying as that is, if I want anything within reason an OSU dining hall probably has it

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on South Campus was awesome.A ton of people party and everyone is pretty nice if you work at it. The dorms would be perfect if it wasnt for power trip RA's who won't hesitate to write you up for music or alcohol. Smith Steeb or Park Stradley are the most fun (atleast last year) while North was far more quiet.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have a great apartment.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love eating at different places on high street. One of my personal favorite places in late night slice.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Apply to as many scholarships as possible! You don't have to pay those back!

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are so many different places to go around campus that there is nothing to complain about. My personal favorite places to go are Chipotle and Panera.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It's really convenient especially since It's basically required

4 College Student

Party Scene: Too much sexual assault. Too much rape. That's the only bad thing about parties

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I've always been a fan of chains so I really couldn't complain

4 College Student

Administration: they're better than schlissel I'll tell you that much

5 College Student

Scholarships: It was pretty easy to apply the scholarships I received

3 College Student

Campus Food: I like how close dining halls are to my classes, but that's just me

3 College Student

Campus Housing: It's really easy to meet new people and make new friends. Once you get used to living in a small room it's not so hard, but it's hard to keep up with organizing and cleaning

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.
