Administration: Since the school is big, it's hard to administer the whole school. I can understand that. However, coordination between different offices is loose and non-effective.

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. At night, the OSU students can call police escort them back to dorm. Besides, for students living off campus, the police can even escort or drive them back to their apartments.

Scholarships: Financial aid really helped me pay for school and not have to worry about the cost as much. Financial did allowed me to focus on school and not have to work during the school year. I would definitely look at the Osu scholarship website for possibly scholarships you can get

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great! Very convenient for school and allows me to get to meet and know new people. The housing process is very understandable and is very considerate about trying to get students to the dorms that the student prefers and the roommate(s) they want.

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.
