5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I absolutely love campus food. The variety of options is better than any school I looked into. Apart from traditional dining, there are many places to spend blocks on campus.

Athletics: Nothing compares to our sports programs and athletic facilities. Free classes are offered to all students, ranging from cycling to kickboxing. Many people participate in intramurals, and almost everyone goes to some form of sporting event consistently.

Greek Life: Greek life isn't my thing, but they have good parties. It is accessible for anyone who wants to rush. Greek has a stigma for being partiers, but there are some good ones. Greek life doesn't have much on an impact on my experience.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Columbus has so many things to offer students of all backgrounds and interests. There are multiple shopping areas, such as Easton, that are just a bus ride away.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a service that will give students a ride home at night. There are safety towers all over campus that will call authorities in case of an emergency. I have never felt uncomfortable on campus, even at night.

Greek Life: I am a transfer student, and also older than the average student, so participating in the greek system in not something that is applicable to my life at this time.

Overall Experience: Ohio State University is a known and widely-respected state school. As such, a degree from this school, is said the have a bit more importance and respect, based of the things that I have heard. I am planning to go on and get either a master's degree or a higher medical degree, so I chose OSU in the hopes that a B.S. from here will help me get into my next schooling program.

College Senior

Guys & Girls: I am a transfer student that is older than the typical student. I am in my 30's, and so I do not know if my rating would be helpful since I am not sure what is cool for that generation.

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many food options on High St and the surrounding areas, and so many of them deliver. It is a pretty great number of options, and the cover the spectrum far beyond the typical fast food fare. It is pretty great.

Health & Safety: The campus feels safe in general, and I do not feel afraid when walking across campus alone at night, however, I always keep my eyes and ears open when I am walking alone. There are campus buses also available to get students safely around, if they have far to go. That is a great thing.

Campus Housing: I live off campus, and did not ever have the campus housing experience, as I was a transfer student.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I have a great location, but it is 2.1 miles from campus. However, it is very close to the bus line, and that runs regularly, which makes it easy to get to and from campus and class.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Being a BIg 10 school, the athletics at OSU are a way of life for most students, either through participation or fandom. It is definitely a huge deal here at Ohio State.

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.
