5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Ohio State University boasts some of the best athletics in the country. As 2015 National Champions, we can proudly say that we are the best.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Ohio State University may not be for everybody but I love the big campus feel. Being a buckeye is a lifestyle and as students, we always proudly sport our school's logo. I'm proud to be a part of such an incredible school with a sense of community as well as a fantastic academic standing.

Health & Safety: I'm sure there is a lot of crime that I do not hear about, but for as large as the campus community is I am surprised that more does not occur. Students get text or email alerts when a serious enough crime has occurred on campus. In addition, Ohio State has its own police force (in addition to Columbus Police) and a student safety service that offers safety escorts on a nightly basis. I would same crime rates are about what would be expected in a large city like Columbus. Take advantage of self-defense classes offered as well as safety tips from buckeye block watch and the police department.

Overall Experience: GE courses aren't the best--classes are huge and they try to weed a lot of people out with the maths and sciences. However, there are a variety of help labs, office hours, and tutors available to help you through. Professors are more personable and easier to talk to once you get into your major-specific courses. Class sizes also get smaller as you move further along so it becomes easier to meet people and form long- lasting friendships.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Ohio State University has a great reputation! The University is so large that it offers a variety of different degrees and supports a very large student body--this means that networking is huge!! Professors have strong ties with different professionals and/or corporations in every field imaginable and if you talk to the right people they can help point you in the right direction.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I never lived in a dorm, but I had access to one through my scholars program as well as when I would visit friends in their dorms. I chose to live off campus because it was cheaper for me. From what I saw there was plenty of space and amenities as well as tutoring services offered in the basement some evenings.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm really not involved with Greek life so I'm not sure what to say about it. Two of my roommates are in a sorority and they are some of the sweetest gals I know. I have been invited to greek parties and I am non-Greek so I do not feel excluded. The houses are HUGE and there are lots of them so chances are if you get into a fraternity or sorority you will be able to find housing with your brothers/sisters.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Although I am not a fan of sports in general I can't deny the appeal of being a "Buckeye" and claiming them as my team--"we" are national champions after all. There is school spirit like I have never seen before and it is easy to get caught up in the traditions and events that revolve around the football team.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: For as good as Ohio State's reputation is I think a lot of their programs are lacking. Professors are there to do research in their field--not to teach. My tuition could be better spent on things that would benefit the student body. However, I like the campus environment, diversity, and wide variety of classes that the University has to offer.

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.
