5 College Freshman

Athletics: Three words, Ohio State football! It's where it's at. Attending the games is a whole another world, one of the greatest atmospheres there is.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Right now, as a freshman I am taking introductory courses so they're not the greatest. I do however love my school. Ohio State is as awesome as their reputation upholds and I can't wait to be able to say I'm and alumna. I'm looking forward to getting into my program and working towards my field of learning!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: They're all good. Different room configurations and dining options in the dorms

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: You have to look past the typical reputations and join if you want the community feel

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Main deciding factor on attending this school. Game days are the best days of the year

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I couldn't be happier. The experiences are one of a kind, school spirit and traditions make you feel alive, education is top notch, perfect mix between urban and suburban campus

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Crimes do occur occasionally on campus, but this is unavoidable with such a large student body and close proximity to downtown Columbus. I can't leave my house without seeing a cop car or student safety vehicle, there are numerous emergency button stations, and campus is well lit.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed each and every one of my courses at Ohio State. All of the professors are extremely knowledgeable and passionate, and willing to help all students. There are so many interesting classes offered that I don't even know about, and every semester I struggle with picking the ones I find most interesting.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ohio State has countless career fairs and research and internship opportunities available to students. The alumni network is massive, and students can go any where in the world with a degree from THE Ohio State University and have their potential employers recognize the name.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is a wide variety of available dorm options. Some are very nice and some are definitely below average. I was lucky to be placed in a newer dorm.

However, each dorm regardless of building quality, encourages a strong sense of community among residents.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek housing appears to be very nice, conveniently located, and encourages a sense of community. I am not involved in Greek life so I do not know too much more about it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: No other college team in the country has a bigger fan base/following than the Ohio State Buckeyes. I am proud to be a part of Buckeye Nation.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Attending The Ohio State University is the best decision I've made in my life thus far. The student community of Buckeyes is fantastic, there are no "cliques" or any hostility between groups within the student body. The university is big enough that there are countless opportunities and unique classes available, but it feels small and you can make it your own. My favorite experiences include the Mirror Lake Jump before the Xichigan game, winning the National Championship at the first College Football Playoffs, and attending the Xichigan game in the Big House this year. I would choose to attend the Ohio State University over and over again if I could start my college experience all over.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: workload is extremely intensive (landscape architecture)

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: my car was broken into on campus

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not interested in frats

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The program is intense and requires much work

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: fan support is so strong, it borders on arrogance and obnoxiousness.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus.

Campus Housing: My freshman year I was in an old building that was very small. I was sick through out the entire year because of the poor air circulation.. sophomore year I moved to off campus housing.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I love being a buckeye fan!

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.
