5 College Freshman

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ohio State strives to be the best in every aspect of the college experience. People complain about the housing, but you won't find better housing at any other college. The education I receive at Ohio State is world-class and is one of the most respected degrees that you can receive in the United States. The social life is second to none and Greek life is what makes it great.

Athletics: It's Ohio State of course its 5 stars.

Health & Safety: I have attended several workshops on sexual assault safety, but I still feel unsure about it. Knowing that I could be doing nothing wrong and could suddenly get sexually assaulted scares me. I am glad that the campus does its best to keep safety to the campus and has options for victims of sexual assault, but in the back of my mind I am still scared when walking by myself at night.

Overall Experience: Every single professor I had this semester was extremely passionate and knowledgeable of what they were teaching. I've talked to most of my teachers comfortably outside of class and they are very helpful when I come to them and ask questions.

Campus Housing: Living on South Campus includes older dorms and far distances when walking places. It's not bad walking to classes, but walking by yourself at night because you were studying at the library that night. I know there is campus security that I can rely on if I don't feel safe, but I have not felt that yet but fear the time something bad happens to me. When I have a service request to fix something in the building, it usually gets fixed. You meet many great people when living on campus!

Greek Life: Being a non-Greek, I find no interest in Greek life. I can find just as many opportunities to do good for society than joining Greek life to do those things.

Athletics: The 4 gyms are spread across campus appropriately. There are usually pretty busy but I love working out in them! There is about anything you can think of in the RPAC

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: OSU has been a wonderful experience thus far. I love my classes, I love all of the different people here, and I love the numerous opportunities here. Although it's a big campus, it's so easy to make small and learn where everything is. I've had contact with so many different people here and the diversity is awesome. The football games were an amazing thing to experience as well and I can't wait to do this all over again in years to come.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Coming to OSU, I wasn't expecting to feel extremely challenged by the academics. However, my classes have proven to be challenging in the best way possible. I feel as if I'm growing as a student every day, and most professors and TAs are there to provide any extra help needed. There are endless study areas on our large campus, the most popular including Thompson Library and the Oval, our large central grassy area. It is easy to register for classes, but it may be difficult to get the classes you want as a freshman.

Health & Safety: It is rare that I feel unsafe when walking on campus. We have had one reported sexual assault this year, but our campus was extremely proactive in making students aware and ensuring that they would do everything in their power to prevent another incident from occurring. We have a safety hub on every block, where students can call campus safety if they feel threatened, unsafe, or need to report an incident.

Campus Housing: I currently living in scholar's housing and it has been a very positive experience so far. North campus holds many scholar's groups and is known to be a little quieter than south campus, but both are great location wise. Also, there is currently a huge construction project on north campus that is set to be completed before fall semester of 2016; the project includes over 5 brand new dorms plus a new common area and a student athletic facility. Many of these dorms will be suite style, which means students have their own bathroom which will be shared with their roommates as opposed to their entire floor. West campus is said to be the worst place to live on campus, simply because it is a far walk to most classes.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a quick response to police and emergency services no matter the location on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honors courses are very challenging but the professors are not afraid to help.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ohio State is a very good degree to have. There is a huge alumni network and the school is recognized worldwide.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everyone seems to enjoy the living quarters and there is a large amount of community

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks and non-Greeks are equal on campus. Greeks do a lot for the community and for the campus and are seen as very helpful to the University.

Athletics: Once you come here you become a Buckeye fan. Especially for the football team. Also there is an amazing facility for every person on campus who wants to use it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a lot of diversity in people so there is much to learn beyond the classroom. No matter what, you can fit in somewhere.

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.
