4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are many professors that are tough and classes that require the students to devote much time and effort to them. However there are many buildings on campus that provide help to students.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are many internship opportunities for an Anthropology major and an interesting variety of jobs available. There are field school opportunities to help enhance student's knowledge in the field.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are many fans throughout the campus and school spirit is incredibly apparent during any sporting event. There are a variety of athletic facilities provided around campus to better the health of every student.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety of off campus dining options that are pretty reasonable in price, cost, and quality. Many restaurants accept money off of the student's school ID card so they do not even have to use cash or a credit/debit card. The cost is fairly cheap but not super great. There are restaurants everywhere making it convenient to eat anytime.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: It is always nice to have a personal computer for college but there are many resources students can use if they do not have one. Every library on campus has a high number of computers available to students and most have the ability of wireless printing. Printing does cost money, but only about 10 cents a page. The network reliability is normally fairly descent.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: The Ohio State University is known for having a high diversity in ethnic and racial background along with political beliefs. Most students are pretty accepting of the many ethnic groups seen on campus. There are also many groups and organizations that different ethnic students can join in order to meet others that are similar to them.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm a Fine Arts major and many of the classes are interesting, however there are some instructor that are more interested in talking about themselves than teaching you how to do something. Also the workload can get a little crazy.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene isn't huge, if someone does drugs, it's typically pot. I feel like you see a lot of alcohol usage on campus.

Campus Quality: All the facilities are recently renovated and great places to hang out and study. RPAC rated in the top 5 best rec centers in the nation!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Everyone in Columbus loves Ohio State University Students

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: plenty of bars and house parties always close to campus

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: there are a plethora of diverse dining options off campus

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are many dining halls all over campus, which is convenient. Having a meal plan for dining is much easier than trying to just spend money because the prices for food is pretty high. Each of the dining halls have different types of foods to offer so it just depends on what you are hungry for that day.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love The Ohio State University Campus! There is a lot of construction happening but the atmosphere is awesome! You can meet so many new people and get involved in new clubs. Living on north campus seemed to be a lot easier for me due to class locations and based on my major so my advice is that you pick a dorm based on where many of your major classes would be.

Technology: The computer labs are fairly available although sometimes crowded.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The social scene at Ohio State is second to none. Different activities for everyone.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Ohio State is one of the biggest sports schools in the country. Football and basketball are the main ones.

1 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The athletic centers at Ohio State are great as well as the libraries and research facilities.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Well, we don't really have many strict policies. We hav to make sure to stay away from the construction sites and to always listen to the police. They are always encourage us not to participate in the Mirror Lake jump during Michigan week but everyone does it anyway and nobody gets in trouble. It's quite calm here.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I came to OSU hoping for a great experience, and I did.I love this place and wouldn't have picked a better place to go. Our campus is phenomenal and the professors are fantastic. Our football team is on top of the charts and school spirit is everywhere.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was the first graduating class in my major. I enjoyed the personal attention from the BME department. I knew all of my professors personally, and the department head. The advisors were very strong.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Cost is very affordable
Landlords don't keep houses in great conditions
If you move a little farther from campus, in short north area, houses are much nicer
Bus system is great to get from off-campus to campus

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Police patrol campus, Student Safety Services are excellent, good e-mail and phone alerts

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: My school has great interns, and your degree program helps you find the interns. I think its great that they help you find the interns because a lot of school leave it up to the student to find.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing for at Ohio State is honestly just okay. The houses aren't terrible but they are very old. Pretty much everyone that I know aside from one person can lock the door to their room. None of them are equipped with alarms, it could be better honestly. One positive is that they have a pretty decent system for finding roommates

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.
