Health & Safety: I've heard a few things, but I personally have ever felt safer, even when walking on the edges of campus at night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are old and not so nice. Mine, while expensive, is absolutely amazing.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone at OSU knows about the football team. Other varsity sports are well liked too. It's huge here on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Ohio State University is a very spirited and well known school with good academics.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've gone here 5 weeks and I love it. From everything I've heard from other people and older students, there are so many options available to get help if needed and succeed. My class sizes aren't too large which is super nice considering how many people are enrolled at OSU.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is The Ohio State University. The alumni network is over half a million and because of this, there is always someone holding the door open for you to a new job. Along with a strong alumni network, OSU is a public ivy league school and as a result the degrees from here are valued as such.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe here, which is very important to success. Along with my general safety, there are many offices and opportunities where a student can get help for their health or safety. There are plenty of programs in place to ensure all students remain safe.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My campus housing is amazing. I'm in Baker West and the community is based around an all-inclusive mentality. Everyone is nice and the community is close-knit.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not very educated about the Greek life here but I've heard they have good parties and do a decent amount for the community.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: This school has more spirit than any other school I've heard about. On game days, the streets are filled with people in their scarlet jerseys and their enthusiasm about whatever event is happening. Because our football team has so much funding and hype, the women's athletic teams all have a ton of funding making them the best in the nation.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's The Ohio State University! Everyone I've met is very nice and welcoming of people from all walks of life. My classes aren't overwhelmingly big. The sporting events are just icing on top of the cake.

Overall Experience: This is a very large school and for that reason alone, Ohio State is not for everyone. That being said, I have been so happy with my decision to come here and be a part of the endless opportunities and the Buckeye community!

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.
