5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I loved living in a dorm my freshman year! There was an awesome social atmosphere and my RAs were great. The dorms were typically clean (I lived in Park Stradley) and it was overall great.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Overall, greek life has been a great experience for me. I've made a lot of connections and met so many new people. While it is not a big deal if you are greek/non-greek at Ohio State, being Greek has significantly impacted my college career in a positive way. However, I do wish there was a greater sense of community (rather than competition) within the Greek community.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Athletic facilities are among the best in the country, and there is more than one so it's easy to access a gym no matter where on campus you are. Fan support and school spirit is out of this world, and student involvement in clubs and organizations is fantastic as well.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school spirit and sense of community is incredible. You can meet students of all kinds of backgrounds, and meet other people who share your goals and interests. It's really been a great experience that I would do all over again if I could.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I would say that you get screwed by the housing process no matter how you fill out your application. You somehow always end up with the opposite of what you requested. Overall, housing is good but they need to develop a new process.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Every single OSU student cares about athletics in some way. Whether they root for anther team or are involved in intramural sports, we all have someone to root for. This idea connects the student body on the same level.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose another school over OSU because I have so many opportunities to take advantage of here at OSU. I am able to take my career in any direction I choose and I am not limited by the connections the the university. Ohio State is able to point me in the right direction that I need to my career path.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Ohio State seems fine, although I am not in one.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are very nice and are quite spacious for everyone to use.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of activities for students to participate but there are also charges/fees for everything you could possibly think of.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My professors have been great and class sizes have all been reasonable and not too large. Plenty of courses offered.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't know much about this but know there are a lot of options for prospects after graduation, especially networking wise.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It seems pretty safe on campus. Crime and assault seems to be not super prevalent.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I'm very content with where I live and love the community.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don' have much of an opinion on Greek life. It's there but not a huge deal.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football has the most support but all of athletics is exciting here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the atmosphere and how much everyone who goes loves it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its a fantastic college and a great experience. The classes are challenging but manageable and the social aspect is whatever you make of it. There is something for everyone here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Engineering has a great job outlook with high paying salaries right out of college with no additional education required.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: they force sophomores to live on campus

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: One of the best decisions I have ever made.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It was a pretty good experience for my freshmen year of college. I made new friends, my academics were good and I successfully moved to Columbus campus. Teachers were nice. They knew what they were doing and while some courses were struggle, it was still a valuable learning experience. the facilities were new and clean and there were a lot of helps for academics. I loved my first year in Mansfield campus and cannot wait to start a new year in Columbus campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While I was in Mansfield campus, there weren't that many opportunities for internship or job (at least in my field) since it was a very small campus. While they had various job fare, it was mostly local and considering that Mansfield was a small place, I could not find any job or internship that was related to my field which was film and video production. I will have to look into what is available this year in Columbus campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall, the campus was pretty safe and it was clean.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: lived off-campus first year and I am now going into housing in Columbus. I do not have much knowledge on housing.

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.
