4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is a huge amount of diversity in Greek life on campus. You have typical sororities and fraternities that are meant for parties, but at the same time there are also a good amount of fraternities and sororities that help the community and prepare students for the future workforce.

Overall Experience: I have been able to obtain the classes I need. The campus is very beautiful and easy to get around.

Professors are very approachable and helpful. As a student that is carrying a 4.0 gpa, school is only as good as the effort you put into it. I would choose The Ohio State University again.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity is a important part on campus. OSU isn't about just american students, but the entire world of students who want a degree in order to succeed their life's expectation. Everyone is different, either it be their sexuality, economic background, political beliefs, and religion. We are who we are, human beings with our own identities that make a change for the world.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics varies for I get emails for education and career options relating in communications and teaching. Professors are a mixed emotions for online teachers are difficult to communicate and make schedule courses unpredictable. Registrations slightly stressful when not knowing which courses to take, but glad in how helpful the advisors are. Studying is my choice and responsibility, though there are occasions where teachers assign to much reading assignment. It is my responsibility to complete it.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My goal is to become a special education teacher, however getting into the program is much difficult. Since the program only accepts 35 students and it seems a bit unfair to restrict on a high demand work ethnic. I find programs are restricting the number of students or asking to much under a short period of time. It doesn't give the student a opportunity to explore and desire a career/degree they wanted when not many could get in.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ever class and courses are different from each other. Since my online classes has thousands of students while my in classes would either be in one large classroom holding forty people or a small class room with twenty. Though the room can be intimidating it is the professors, teachers, and TA's who make it easy in school. It is their style of teaching and the passion they held in their topic that made my experience at OSU great.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on Campus is great. Yet the appliances not good since my roommates and I had gotten a fridge 4 times.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The truth is I don't know much about Greek life. My roommates told me it is easy to get into Rush to have the experience before deciding if your want to join or not. From what I've seen, the Greek society on campus are nothing like what the media proclaims them to be. Sure there are several parties going on during the weekends, but each Greek House has their part for the community.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I had enjoy my first semester at OSU. My roommates are great. The campus events are wonderful, especially the Light Up The Lake. Even though there have been sorrows and threats, the school showed respect to those who had passed away and tried to protect students and faculty on campus. If I could do it all over I wished I could have gone out and experience certain events, since I am a introvert.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Buckeyes are one of the top 10 players in basketball. Although, I'm not a huge sport fan I can see it is very important and the schools holds high spirits for it's football team and other sports. Also the huge support from OSU marching band and school pride. It is a honor and team work for every student, athlete, band member, practically everyone. One big heart for the state of Ohio.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are challenging, but overall its a great place.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am very happy with my school and its diversity. There are many opportunities available for students. I finished a program in Human Development and Human Sciences and moved into a secondary program. This program was nursing and I have easily transitioned into a nurse practitioner program.

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.
