Off-Campus Dining: It's everywhere, that's for sure. The prices are good, and there variety is incredible. The further down High street you go, either way, the more variety you'll get and the more opportunities you'll have to experience something new.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Most houses are old, some a bit run down, and all quite pricey if you decide to live quite close to campus. There are a few gems, but most are average.

4 College Senior

Local Area: The university atmosphere is filled with people all looking to achieve the same goal and thus creates a very friendly and helpful atmosphere. However, it is a large city and with a large city comes a small community of people who's goals differ from the rest, but overall, I love the atmosphere and wouldn't trade it for any other campus.

Administration: The level of strictness on campus is just right. It goes by the general rule of 'don't be a douchebag and we don't care'.

Greek Life: Though I am not personally involved in greek life, it is definitely alive and well on campus. I believe we have some of the strongest greek communities in the country and their presence is known fairly well even to non-greeks.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The prevalence of drug use is dependent on who your friends are. Overall, drinking is much more common.

Scholarships: I did not receive much financial aid, but what I did receive was better than many people got. I am happy with it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: While living in a city there are always chances for crimes. I have heard of them happening on campus but i have not personally seen anything criminal. It feels very safe to me on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places to eat off campus. But they are all pretty expensive for us poor college students!

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Since there are so many students here, you will literally find every possible kind of person here. The people I've encountered are all very friendly, or at least respectful, and very casual as far as dress and expectations. Students are involved in all kinds of activities and no one treats you differently based on your choices of what to get involved in. You can even create your own club if you want! The best way to describe students here is diverse.

Technology: Every library on campus has computers available, although it is hard to find a computer during finals or midterms. There are also computer labs for certain majors, which is nice once you've declared a major since they are not always crowded. I have my own printer, but I hear the university's printers and charges are not unreasonable. The network is sometimes unreliable, but the speed is good, and when there is a problem, tech crews are usually on top of it. I would strongly suggest bringing your own computer if you want the freedom of working when you want and need.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There are so many people on this campus, and you can always find someone who suits you perfectly. You can make friends for life on this campus!

Parking: Very well organized, and located in convenient places.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Housing goes fast and is very competitive. However, it is well worth it and there are a lot of great locations close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I'm in the science and rehabilitation school, as an athletic training major and I must say it is hard!! The major accepts about 50 apps and less than half gets accepted it's very competitive and very time consuming because your prerequisites are classes like anatomy,chem,bio,physiology, etc so it's very stressful

2 College Freshman

Diversity: We are diverse as individuals but as a whole the university I'd a PWI..predominantly white institution therefore the minority has to work twice as hard to feel equal to the others. As far as classes go depending on your major you'll see the minority as the majority such as science majors Asians become majority and once again you have to compete with them...there's always going to be competition between races.

Weather: When it gets hot here it really get hot, and your classes may be so far a part, and snows a lot but classes rarely get cancelled that's another down fall of having a big campus because now you have to leave super early to make sure you don't slip and getting to class

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Ohio State has one of the largest undergraduate populations across the nation, so diversity is extensive. There is literally anyone and everyone and all sorts of personalities and looks.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: To get into the Neuroscience program, there aren't much criteria. I would advise meeting with the advisor if you choose Neuroscience because of the program's rigor. He/she will talk with you and discuss whether you are a good fit for the program.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet, but I plan to apply for one at a hospital within a research institute. I want the professional and academic experience involved with working in a research lab. Finding internships are hard, but as long as I look in the right places, I might be able to find one. My professional training so far has included a research assistant position in a research lab and an administrative assistant to a professor.

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.
