3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I attend a regional campus, I don't get to experience everything like on main campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Regional campus still feels huge love for sports.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Small campus allows you to get to know professors.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There have recently been more than usual accounts of crimes occurring on or near campus. In general the university feels safe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All of the professors are very knowledgable. It is sometimes difficult to get help in classes that are very large.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities to attend career fairs and apply for internships and jobs. There are also many opportunities to interview on campus which is convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere was not what I would have liked it to be in my dorm.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not know too much about greek-life but it seems to play a huge part in a lot of students' lives.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are a big part of this university. Everyone knows about the athletics here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The atmosphere at the school is amazing however, it is sometimes difficult to get answers to some academic issues even though I was told the advisors would be extremely helpful.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Incidents seem to occasionally occur. Safety precautions and warnings are adequately utilized throughout campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: In terms of just my residence floor, it can be very unsanitary and difficult and get work done. The staff provide opportunities to socialize and partake in special events. I'm paying too much for the building I currently live in terms of benefits and cons.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit among the student body is exceptional and athletes here are very competitive.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great opportunities available to students in any field. Staff here are very helpful and are genuinely interested in your well-being and success.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: National football champions!! Does not get any better than that. Football games are so much fun and something to look forward to. Want to try basketball games including the women's program when I get time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Would definitely do it all over again. School is super organized, has something to offer everyone and I feel like the school has a great reputation which will give me an edge when job hunting begins.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great school, but I get homesick

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Good resources, but I don't know what I want

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Great community in the dorms

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Don't have much experience with it, friends enjoy

5 College Junior

Athletics: The whole school revolves around the football team

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: School is great, but I have no direction still.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: OSU is near an urban area, so there are definitely things to look out for as far a safety is concerned. As long as you stay directly on the campus area, you're very likely to be alright. Nearby off-campus areas aren't as guaranteed. It's no Detroit, obviously, and as long as you take common-sense precautions and don't do anything stupid you'll probably be fine. There's also and automated text and email alert system that sends messages out anytime there's an assault on/near campus, or in the case of an active threat in the area.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All the course I've taken so far have been at least fairly stimulating (if not more), the the professors have all been helpful (some even taking extra steps to get to know all the students).

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: OSU is known almost everywhere. It may not hold up the same as an Ivy League school, but for a public state university, It's definite one of the best.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
