Campus Housing: Only a few dorms lack air conditioning, which is great. However, starting with the class of 2019, you are required to live on campus for the first two years.

Party Scene: Parties are very prevalent on the weekend and of course you can find people that go out every night of the week.

4 College Senior

Academics: Challenging but not too difficult (at least for my area of study)

Diversity: I have met a great set of diverse people during my time here.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Some do drugs, some don't. Most people drink (at least in my circle) but you're not looked down upon if you don't. It's easy to find your niche at OSU because it is such a diverse, large campus.

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe while on campus and I know a lot of my friends have the same feeling.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've made connections with a few of my professors that I know I will keep beyond the classroom.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The college I am in does a great job at hosting networking events for students, there are plenty of career fairs throughout the year, and on-campus interviews make everything a lot easier. I am happy to have accepted a full-time offer upon graduating in May, and attribute that achievement to the awesome career center and the opportunities I was given at Ohio State.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: My experience freshman year was a little different because I lived on a floor with a lot of upperclassmen, but the rest of my building was great. I met my three best friends in my dorm and wouldn't trade my experience for anything.

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.
