Administration: The school is super lenient on alcohol and other violations. The only thing they can be annoying about is locking yourself out of your room.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Some classes (chem and bio) are extremely difficult and really impact your GPA for the worse. The math and science weed out courses are much too difficult for the average student. If you want to have a good GPA for graduate school I recommend attending a different college.

Off-Campus Housing: Housing is cheap and pretty easy to find! Most off campus housing is walking distance to classes which is nice.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is great at OSU. It's only about 10% of campus that participates in Greek life. Everyone is very nice. I recommend joining greek life if you want to get more involved in the social scene.

5 College Junior

Athletics: We've got some of the best teams around! Both at the club and varsity level!

Off-Campus Housing: It's a pain to find a place. They are over priced and not particularly nice but they are a great place to call home.

Administration: OSU is pretty chill. If you are into the party scene there is a place for you. If you are not there is also a place for you. The administration allows each to do what they please. Leniency with a lot of the rules also depends on what dorm/who your RA is.

Greek Life: They are not the majority of the campus but they sure think that they are. They will be nice to you---especially in class if you are smart-- but ultimately they look down on anyone not in Panhellenic Greek life!

Health & Safety: The student health center is a great resource however it can only be accessed by foot which is rather annoying and inconvenient when you are sick. It is also very expensive.

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.
