5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is one way to describe it; one of a kind.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Ohio State university is unique in that it has a great diversity of students and majors. However, because of too many people in a classroom, it is up to the students to do well and maintain their GPAs. Personal helps are not to be expected and communication with professors or staffs are difficult. As an Asian students, I have experienced discriminations but they were not harsh and there are more nice people than the racists. Despite these negative qualities, I chose the Ohio State University because it had a potential of providing me with so much opportunities. I enrolled in the campus as a Biology major but was hoping to explore more subjects as I could discover what fits me better. Along with my major classes, I can choose what I want to learn in vast number of classes,and I fully understand that this is not possible in many of the universities in the United States. Another characteristic I like about OSU is that I can be friends with people of diverse ethnicity. I always envied people who not only knows a lot of people but also knows people with different nationalities. Also, because of diverse ethnicities, the campus is filled with amazing cultures. As a freshman, I have not fully experienced the greatness of OSU but so far, OSU is the best college for me.

Overall Experience: I like my school. Even though it is large, there are always people around, which can sometimes be a good thing. The athletics are definitely fun, but I love the opportunities that Ohio State presents to me. I feel like going to this school will present with greater opportunities. They also usually have fun, helpful staff teaching classes. It is definitely an experience here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I will start at OSU in the fall, but the orientation was awesome, as well as the tours, visitation days, and special events. My only worry is due to the college size, classes and time with professors will be more challenging.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love that I was the only person in my high school to travel so far to attend school. I love getting to know new people from diverse backgrounds. That is the best part because while learning about other's lives it helps me understand and figure out my own. Being there I feel independant and I finally feel like I can discover who I am. And I love going to class and learning so much about different things.

Athletics: The football team is a national power house the basketball team is constantly in the NCAA tournament. This past year Ohio State won a national championship in football, wrestling, pistol, and synchronized swimming. The students and public are passionate about the buckeyes. We even just set the national record for most people who attended a SPRING game. It was unreal

Off-Campus Housing: I just recently rented a house with a few friends of mine. The process was very simple and the rental companies are very easy to work with. My advice is to make sure you start early as it will get tougher to find places once you get past November and December

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not many bars or clubs around but there are still enough to have a good time

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A bunch of chain restaurants located on high street however a quick trip to the short north will open you up to a variety of unique dinning places

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.
