4 College Junior

Majors: I was just admitted into the early childhood education BsEd program. They just remodeled the program and the admission process. This year applicants had to have an interview. I was confused as to how they assessed us because they kept us in groups of 12.

Scholarships: I have not really experienced the financial aid process. I applied for a couple of scholarships through the university but was not rewarded any money.

Off-Campus Dining: Many of the places on high street within the campus borders are fast food chain restaurants. There are more places in the short north, but it is a bit of a walk.

Off-Campus Housing: My landlord is amazing and I live pretty much on high street across from the union. My apartment complex is extremely safe, with three sets of keys in order to get into my room. The cost is not terrible for the location and there is a parking lot, but it costs extra to park there.

Party Scene: I usually just go to house parties because I can not get into the bars. House parties are pretty fun though and I always meet new people when I go out.

Campus Housing: My floor in my dorm freshman year was very close. Everyone was friendly and we often went out for floor dinners. It was a welcoming floor, which helped me ease into college life.

Administration: The administration is very on top of some things, but not others.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office messed up one of my loans/promissory notes so it was a bit of a pain in the beginning of my first semester of my freshmen year to have to straighten this out on my own without knowing much. It was frustrating that i was unable to pick up my football tickets and was at risk for being dropped from classes for something that wasn't even my fault. However, the woman at the Office of Student Affairs was so helpful and worked tirelessly to straighten everything out for me.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. The police and administration take any reports of crime or sexual abuse very seriously and that it good to know.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I love going to a school with so much school spirit and support for their sports teams. Every sport on campus is just as good as the next so there is always a sports team to cheer on.

Local Area: Its great having the city of Columbus within walking distance from campus, but I also love the fact of living in a spirited college town.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of reasonably priced food. It isn't the healthiest food but it is still good. The fact that we are able to use our buckID cards to pay for food is an added plus.

Athletics: Very proud to be a buckeye, the sports teams are great!

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.
