5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: RIGHT off campus starts the off-campus housing. its across the street and as close (and some are closer) than some of the dorms. Some are Super fancy and some are basic first-apartment complexes youd imagine. (((a lot cheaper than living on campus))). OSU holds a huge Off Campus housing fair where a bunch of complexes come and you can explore and sign leases and such. It's phenomenal; I recommend it.

Off-Campus Dining: You can get Anything like wendys, five guys, buffalo wild wings, 18 different chinese places, 40 styles of pizza (dominos has, no joke, 12 different specials just for students; theyre amazing), all the way up to classy 3 and 4 stars for dates and expensive 5 star restaurants if you have rich parents that visit (if so, I envy you. their menus look to die for).

Administration: Don't be an idiot and you'll be completely fine. Dont smoke or drink on campus and you'll be totally fine. Don't cheat on tests and you'll be entirely fine.

Health & Safety: So far campus crime has not been a big deal at all unless you're absentminded (so far the only thing that has happened is laptops have been stolen when people leave and dont close their doors). There are blue light systems All over campus so if you ever feel the desire to be escorted late at night its not a big deal at all.

Party Scene: I have only been to a handful but my roommates go out almost every night. There's something for everyone regardless of if youre under 21 or if youre into greek life. There have been huge parties that go a bit insane and also (to me) more preferred sized ones where you can get pretty trashed and have an awesome time and also not run into a thousand people on your way to the bathroom.

Anyone who's smart goes off campus, so if you're not into partying and want to stay in, people wont bother you. there's also plenty of stuff to do on nights out both on and off campus if you dont plan on drinking.

Campus Housing: My dorm is WAY larger than my friends at other universities. Multiple people could sprawl out on the floor and not hit each other. We have a "living area" between beds that has 3 chairs, a carpet, fridge/microwave(included), and about 7 feet across is a bookshelf with a tv on it. Our own bathroom which is awesome. and insanely close to all of my classes. People on the floor frequently go out to bars or the town together or congregate in someone's room.

Local Area: High Street is a 5 minute walk and has everything from Buffalo Wild Wings to Giant Eagle to TONS of local restaurants. A 5 minute walk from there are a few of the cutest parks ever - traveling musicians that will play a solo piece on the cello for you and your date near ponds and fountains are not uncommon. Downtown Columbus is a 30 minute walk (or a super quick bus rise - free with your BuckID). Free open concerts, super awesome restaurants, and (my favorite) lines of benches that have been converted to swings that overlook the river and their awesome lit-up bridges. An ideal place to say the least.

Party Scene: I don't usually go out

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The advisors are heat and it's easy to tell which faculty are genuinely involved in their students. As a Biochemistry major i saw my class size drop from 130 to 40 over my freshman year. It is tough but if you love it, and the challenge, and the deep explanations of the workings of life, you stick with it. Also wonderfully preps you for pre-med. I combined my degree with an engineering minor, i basically am a biomedical engineer without having to apply to the college of engineering.

Majors: Internships vary greatly depending on who your supervisor or coworkers are

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Frats are decent but the sororities only really look at your headshot.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Columbus is a large city but incredibly gentrified, there is no central social hub but it is rather spread out, which can make things difficult without a car

Campus Housing: The people in Bradley become your family, often voted hall of the year

Administration: The honor code just changed this year and much strictness was added

Off-Campus Dining: Flippin' fantastic, we're right next to the short north

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Unless you want to join greek life or live in a house with six others it's tough to find something less than half a mile from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Life revolves around football season and the best damn band in the land

Party Scene: There is almost always a party on the weekend whether its in a bar, campus wide, Chittenden, or at a Greekparty, there is always someone talking about a party that they went to on the weekend when its Monday. It makes student happy and enjoy life on campus and it adds more drama and something to talk about. But its not something that has to be experienced to have a good time.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is okay. The dorms are secure and they are usually very clean depending on what building you are in. It truly is determined by your building.

Majors: I have not had an internship before but I would like to get one soon to help me experience the studies in my field for the future and see the different opportunities for my future. I have concerned with finding one that will truly please me and allow me to help in with depth.

Majors: With my program it was highly competitive and it is important to be creative and understand the usefulness of critiques and not to break down from them. It is important to be timely and qualitative in your work. You have to create three binders full of the work you have done in your classes for the past semester, now year, and other supplemental work and the special project according to your specific discipline you wish to go into.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Almost all the Greeks have their own houses, other that don't are for the convenience of students who are known to live elsewhere and is for community purposes mostly. Greek life is seen on campus but you don't have to be Greek to be social and enjoy the party scene. They are usually seen around campus supporting organizations and having promotions but other than that they typically aren't out and about in large groups during school days unless you look specifically for them.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The cost is usually just with the quality of the food if not the taxes. But there are great deals and promotions for students around the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics on campus are supported by the majority of students on campus and the athletic groups have students and school spirit in mind at all times.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's not bad. I rather go back to Washington D.C where I am originally from.

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.
