3 College Junior

Greek Life: Personally, I am not involved with Greek life on campus, however, I believe it is an important part of the school because it is a great avenue for people to make friends and to get away from your studies. This can be achieved by all of the different fraternities and sororities on campus, whether it is through service, social engagements, or fundraising, and I believe campus life would be severely altered without it.

Athletics: Ohio State is considered by many the healthiest campus in the United States, thanks largely to the amazing athletic facilities and programs that students have access too. I really enjoy participating in the intramural programs at school, because I get to compete against other teams in an organized fashion, something that I hadn't done since high school. The varsity sports are also a huge part of campus life for me and for the rest of the student body. Home football games will take over the city of Columbus with Scarlet and Grey and an amazing atmosphere is created that is almost impossible to recreate anywhere else and a whole new appreciation for the school and camaraderie with your peers is forged.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Attending Ohio State University is the best decision I have made to date. There are countless opportunities to get involved in the many clubs and activities sponsored by the school and the academics are also taken very seriously. Overall, the school has many opportunities for a student to excel inside and outside of the classroom.

Health & Safety: Campus safety rides are only available after dark and before 1am. The service should be 24/7. The campus cabs stop running early sometimes and don't match the arrival times sometimes. This has inconvenience has caused me to walk miles across campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some classes are too large to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I wish it was easier to find the African American sororities and fraternities. Most of our Greek life groups are prodominantly white.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Amazing facilities for every sport. You are able to find and field, gym, or practice space to fulfill any type of activity.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great school, great people, and great opportunities. My most memorable moment was welcome week. There is always some major company(PINK,Nike, Coffee Mate, etc.) on campus giving out free stuff.

Health & Safety: There is absolutely no problem with on campus safety, it's the partying that takes place off campus that you have to worry about. I have never felt unsafe on campus, but I have several friends, myself included where we have all been in unsafe scenarios. Generally the student body is on the look-out for one another, but it's impossible to prevent when girls keep getting so hammered on the weekends. One thing on campus that I find as a huge issue is the student health center. Administators advertise to students that they should "take advantage of this opportunity", although you have to schedule at least a month in advance to acquire any sort of appointment. But by that time you're either better or you went someplace else because the Wilce Student Center didn't have an appointment soon enough. It is not fair how little there is at the health center that's supposed to be used for a little less than 50,000 students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school offers top notch professors, courses, and an incredible variety of courses offered. I am constantly amazed by the opportunities of classes that I can take. I have heard that it can be difficult to learn in large lecture-style classes, but I have never had a class with more than 45 students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The degree has an immense amount of value no matter where you go, OSU is a great school all around when it comes to both in-class experience and outside-class experience.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the oldest housing residence on campus and I still love it; even the dorms that have no A/C are great to live in.

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.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The overwhelming amount of opportunities that opened up when attending this school make everything worthwhile.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We get notifications via email, when any safety issue has occurred on campus. There are telephones on streets where you can ask for help or request someone to accompany you to a destination.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some course are easy and others are difficult. The professors have all been accommodating if you make an appointment. Variety of courses is endless. Class size can be 100 or more.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many employers recruit on campus. It is possible to interview on campus. I am not quite ready for this but look forward to meeting many employers when that time arrives.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: One lived in the dorms for one year. I moved into an apartment with a roommate.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I do not participate in the athletics. I occasionally use the swimming pool. Fan support is popular here, but for me studying is the most important.

5 College Junior

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.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm here for the education, but I'm having to work while attending. If I could focus solely on school my opinion might be higher.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ohio State is a big school and recruiters know it. Lots of opportunity can come from here.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school makes efforts to promote health and safety through seminars and campus wide email.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Never stayed in campus housing, cuz it's a ripoff.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
