2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Incredibly difficult major with lots of very smart people. Being a woman in engineering allows for lots of opportunities though.

2 College Junior

Weather: The weather is always all over the place. The fall is usually really nice, but in the Spring, by the time it warms up enough to go out and enjoy it, it's already finals week.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's a big city and it always has something going on. OSU is not to far from downtown which is so convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I would say that this school is very diverse and has many opportunities to meet different types of people. Although many people at this school are white, we have a lot of chances to meet other people.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: There are computers all over campus, but during exam week, it is more difficult to find an open computer in the lab. The computers are all flat screens, updated with the latest technology. You could definately use only computers on campus without purchasing your own, but it would be exceptionally inconvenient for how much work you are expected to do online.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are numerous food options on campus; anyone could find food. However, many of the establishments offer the same food and become very monotonous. You can use your meal plan to buy some over priced groceries if you have extra.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is easy to find a place near campus, but parties and vagrants are always your neighbors. It does not feel particularly safe in the evening time. It is more affordable than living on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: In the Winter, it is difficult to navigate the weather because you have to walk everywhere and it snows or ices frequently without warning.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Parking on campus is great and convenient with excellent shuttle service to get you to and from your car and campus. The only downside is it's a little expensive to buy the pass.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The football and basketball games are awesome. All varsity sports at Ohio State are very well known. The football and basketball teams perform well year in and year out.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The campus is very nice with many activities. Up and down High street there are many restaurants, bars and other attractions. You can travel to the RPAC and get in a good workout or play some competitive basketball. Also, attend some yoga classes or hit at the driving range.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: People that are part of greek life are not that friendly.

3 College Senior

Technology: Sometimes they are really slow. All the computers are dirty!

2 College Freshman

Parking: The parking on campus is about average. You will either need to arrive around 8 in the morning or after 5 pm if you want to get a spot nearby. However, all parking spots are more manageable than those you will find on the main campus.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene at OSUN is largely visible. The dorms often smell of marijuana, and it is nearly impossible to go a class without 1/4 under the influence of a drug. To much misfortune, there is little to no enforcement, either from the RAs nor the administration, despite their knowledge of the illicit activities.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Not much of a drug scene, although it depends who you hang out with. Alcohol and partying is definitely present, similar to all large public universities. That being said, as the population is very large, it is never difficult to find friends with the same interests that you have. If you want to find a party, you will find a great one. If you want to go to a party but not drink, there will be plenty of friends with the same plans. If you want to avoid parties all together, there are plenty of other activities you can have access to.

2 College Junior

Parking: Costs are very high and convenience is very low. Parking is far from campus and lots fill up very quickly.

4 College Junior

Majors: As a geography major, I am not comcerned with anything. I just feel that some of the classes are a bit of a challenge at times.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Ohio State has great athletics and are able to have a great time watching whether you're in the stadium or somewhere on campus. RPAC and ARC are amazing and love that there are fit people working out all the time all over campus.

Campus Food: If you live on south or north the food won't get boring and will be good for the times you live in the dorm. The cafes around campus are excellent and really enjoyed the block system just put into place.

Majors: In in the Nursing program and although it takes a ton of work and effort to get into the program it is a great program and I would do it again. There are great jobs at the Medical Center to get into during or after school.

3 College Junior

Administration: Depends on the course and the professor, but overall I don't think the campus is very very strict.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: OSU is a big campus with many students so there are limited availability of good housing around campus. Parking can be a hassle if the housing does not have its own parking lot. Pro is that cost is pretty cheap compared to housing in the east or west coast. And even with limited availability, one always seem to be able to find housing somewhere around campus.

5 College Student

Diversity: As an international college, Ohio State has a very diverse population of students -- plus professors from all over the world!

5 College Student

Academics: There is almost no end to the classes you can take at Ohio State University! As one of the biggest and more respected colleges in America, the professors are qualified and the classes are diverse.

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.
