4 College Junior

Party Scene: You can always find a party somewhere.

Campus Food: I love the different varieties of food there is to choose from. I never get tired of eating the same thing because the options are limitless.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is great. There are always endless things going on. Being that the school is so big, it is easy to meet new people and make friends.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The football team is basically the center of life at OSU.

Scholarships: You are automatically applied for financial aid when you apply to the school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: My only complaint is that all of the food is overpriced. Traditional dining is all-you-can-eat, so it's possible to get your money's worth. Overall the food is pretty good.

Campus Housing: The dorms are alright depending on which one you live in. Some of the older dorms, such as Bradley Hall, don't have air conditioning and are just generally in worse than the newer, more expensive dorms on campus. The people are friendly and there is a very social atmosphere. The food on campus is overpriced and if you live on campus you must pay for a meal plan. If you don't use up all of the money on your meal plan you lose it, and sometimes it can be difficult to use all of the money, so many students end up buying up to a hundred dollars worth of food to take home at the end of the semester.

Off-Campus Housing: There are several different areas to live off campus...some are bad and some are good. You have to just go around and do your own searching to find a place that will suit you best.

Administration: Theh are very strict when it comes to the fairness of students. For example, cheating is taken very seriously because it is unfair to the other students who didn't cheat to let the cheater off the hook with no punishment.

Overall Experience: You really need to be able to do your own research if you're a "non-traditional student". The advisors are fine for traditional students, but don't really know what to do with the students who are not following the same traditional path as everyone else.

Party Scene: Ohio State football - enough said!

Off-Campus Housing: I found a place next year that is right by high street for a decent price and is close to college building

Scholarships: financial aid process is okay sometimes they do not respond with how much aid you have received for a while sometimes right before the semester starts, but nothing that I has made me have to contact the financial aid office.

Party Scene: It is ok. I've been to a couple fun parties and then there are some weekends where nothing is going on at all. This usually doesn't happen late fall/winter

Health & Safety: Campus police and student safety are just a few of the security measures here at Ohio State. Student safety is great for if you are away from your dorm and you need a ride back in the middle of the night from somewhere. Particularly great for weekends.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is nice, but you get the feeling that it is encouraged to move off campus after you 1st or 2nd year of school. Most if not all my friends life off campus and I am still in a dorm. The price of living in a dorm compared to living off campus is astonishing. I plan on living off campus next year.

Greek Life: I do not know much about the Greek life down here at Ohio State as for I am not apart of a fraternity.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Not only do we have the nations top football program, but we also have many opportunities for those not in varsity sports to participate in sports that they love. We also have one of the nations top gyms on campus available for us to use whenever we would like.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our university does everything they can to help prevent any assault by providing us with the knowledge of how to keep ourselves safe, as well as a 24/7 campus police that can be easily located at many locations around campus.

Off-Campus Housing: It can be difficult to find somewhere to live, but the prices are absolutely worth it!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I have grown up in the area around campus and it is absolutely the best city to live in. There is constantly something going on that makes living here so enjoyable.

Majors: Being an animal science major is the best decision I have ever made towards my career. I have never met a group of mentors and peers that are so focused on making sure that I get the best education they can possibly provide for me. They care more about the students than any other faculty on campus.

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.
