4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Baker Hall West as part of the Art Scholars academic community. The building itself is one of the oldest on campus, doesn't have AC, and the laundry services are in need of some serious repair. However, the community in Baker is known as one of the best, and there's a reason why. Almost everyone here is united by a shared interest in the arts, and we're all generally very accepting of one another. There's lot of diversity in the dorm, and a lot of great opportunities for learning and involvement provided by the hall council.

Overall Experience: The dorm I love in doesn't have AC, but the sense of community is so great that I don't even mind. My academic advisors and studio art professors were extremely willing and able to help me when I decided to change my major to studio art, and answering any questions I had during the transition. Overall, I'm really enjoying OSU so far. It has such a large and diverse campus that anyone can find a place to fit in if they just look.

Campus Housing: It is pretty average. My building was rennovated a few years ago and is decent, but definitely has its own problems. Our rooms are a lot smaller than I expected, but you get used to them pretty fast.

Athletics: Everyone who attends Ohio State can bond over our athletics. It is cool to see that our enthusiasm extends to all areas besides the typical football team. I see so many women's and less popular sports, including club teams, get so much attention and it really brings together our campus.

Overall Experience: I cannot imagine myself being anywhere else. From the people to the professors to the atmosphere, Ohio State was the right choice for me. It presents so much opportunity and although it is so large, makes each person feel like an individual. I would recommend Ohio State to anyone who is looking for an enthusiastic and united campus.

Health & Safety: The campus is very large and in the city, so it is always dangerous to walk alone at night. However, student safety services is always willing to pick students from anywhere on campus and take them home. The police are also always patrolling the neighboring streets and with such a large student body, it is easy to find a friend to walk home or crash with!

Overall Experience: The teachers love what they are doing. They are so happy to be here and they know exactly how to make students feel engaged and interested. For such a huge school, I genuinely feel as though my teacher put a lot of effort into my individual success.

Campus Housing: I got stuck in the worst dorm on campus so I haven't been a big fan of the housing here. However, a lot of my friends are in other dorms and are VERY satisfied with their living conditions. Also they are building a lot of new dorms next year.

Greek Life: Im in greek life and I love it so much! Obviously it isn't for everyone but I think it was such an amazing way to make friends. However, since this school is so huge, it is not necessary in order to have a social life so there is little divide between those in greek life and those who are not.

Overall Experience: I love it here. When I applied I barely considered it, but after visiting I immediately fell in love. Everyone here lives and breathes Ohio State and for obvious reasons. I never once have regretted my decision and I honestly don't think I could have ended up at a better school! Go Bucks!

Health & Safety: OSUPD does a good job at patrolling and responding to emergencies and with the blue light emergency buttons place around campus and near off campus housing, they are doing their best to respond to emergencies.

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.
