3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are really good and bad places but it just gets old after a while.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus has its pros and cons but I love all the people that I have met.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Honestly the food as a whole is good. As someone who does have dietary restrictions, I was surprised by the amount of options that I had. I am easily able to find something good and healthy at nearly every dining location on campus. Traditional dining is good on occasion, but definitely not something that you want to eat for every meal every day. Getting a meal plan of blocks is definitely better than the traditions options. You have much more flexibility and ability to eat at the places with the best food, such as the Union or Marketplace.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It really just depends on where you live. The newer dorms are all very nice, while the older buildings are a bit run down. The university is currently in the process of building new dorms on north campus to go along with the newer buildings built on south. Smith Steeb and Park Stradley are all rooms with two people, whereas some of the older buildings on north campus or in Morrill and Lincoln have suite style rooms in which you would have multiple roommates.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's very difficult finding anything close to campus that is cheap or safe. You have to be willing to commute 20+ minutes a day and pay ridiculously high rent for something semi decent.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food around here just isn't great. And if it is good, it's expensive and far from campus.

2 College Freshman

Administration: Too many times I have smelled pot in my dorm hall and nothing has been done about it, even after I filed a complaint to my hall director. My friend had a horrendous experience with the administration about finding her a new room after her roommate was repeatedly abusing her. She almost left the university because of it. Every night there is some sort of room full of people in my dorm screaming and dancing until 3 am, but nothing ever gets done about the noise violations.

Scholarships: They aren't as stingy with their money as other schools are.

Party Scene: I don't party. I came to school to get a degree and get an education, not to lose brain cells.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's VERY difficult to eat healthy food here, plus everything is so expensive. I waste hundreds of dollars each MONTH because of the meal plan here.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most dorms are pretty bad as far as not having air conditioning, having too cramped of living space, or just overall bad location in relation to classes. Most people live on campus second year for a very good reason.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some cheap. Some expensive. What do you expect?

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options. Average prices.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have yet to run into any problems.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Make sure every application is completely done

Party Scene: I rarely party so I could not rate this accurately.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I eat the same food everyday so it is okay to me.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Mack Hall is great, but is far from my classes

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: New dorms to come next year, but as of now the best dorms are Park-Stradley Hall, Smith Steeb Hall, and Residence on Tenth. There are an array of varying options that you could see on the Ohio State website and it will go into detail about all the different types of dorm rooms that can be found on campus. Prices depend on how "luxiourous" the dorm you live in is. Id say the place I would be least likely to want to live in Morrill or Lincoln Tower because they are pretty far away from class buildings and my favorite dining facilities.

Off-Campus Housing: Bold Heading says Review Off-Campus Dining, Description say Off-Campus Housing.

Dining I already answered.

Housing is good. Most options are townhouses that need updating. If you have a car you can look further and usually can find something nicer but comes with a higher cost, especially if you venture closer to downtown/High street.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I'm just realizing that the bold heading is different from the description and it has been that way for the past couple of questions. Off- Campus dining is fine, not special or great but good enough.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: More buses and routes that include more buildings further from campus like The Schott would be nice.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Campus Parc has high prices and many times the lots fill up requiring you to park in the west campus lots. You can buy the pass for only west campus but when I have to work the spots next to the Schott are for the more expensive pass. The buses don't go to the Schott either.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Everything except the wi-fi is great. You can tell that there are too many students using the bandwidth. I would like some of the software for engineers to be more easily accessible since right now your only options are engineering specific computer labs.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Very monopolized campus when it comes to food. Some outside vendors on campus would be very welcome.

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.
