Scholarships: Being the first in my family to go college, my parents and I did not know much about the college process. So it was stressful trying to figure it out. But when I seemed help and called the university, and set up an appointment, I was able to understand everything more clearly and it was really helpful.

Administration: I feel that the administration at my particular campus really care about the well being and safety of the students. Because it is a smaller campus, I feel students get more attention and the administration is closer and cares more or rather is more attentive, since there is a smaller number of students, and they care about what you are doing.

Party Scene: particularly in my campus there is not really a big "party scene." And I am not really a partier, so I do not know much about it even if they are there.

Health & Safety: Again I feel very safe on my particular campus, and I don't see sexual assault as a big issue on this campus, as I have heard about on other campuses or other universities.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I feel very safe In this campus, and in this city in general. I don't have to worry to much about anything happening to much even if I am walking outside at night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I think that my dorms are very spacious. I love that its like an apartment, with a kitchen, dining room, hallway and bathroom. The rooms are very spacious as well and you can fit more thing that the dorms I have toured in the columbus campus, and the only other school I visited, Ohio University.

Greek Life: I think that greek life is okay. It depends on the specific sorority/faternity. If they are all about parties, i don't really support that. But if they are about service and stand for good values i think that is what will make me interested.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The closet off campus dining is on 21st street, and it has al lot of the most commonly known food restaurants, that I know of and a few others.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Getting a scholarship through the university is very convenient. It's not as much as I'd like, considering I that I worked very hard for the grades that I earned, but I can't complain, it's free money.

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't been able to explore the off-campus dining options yet, but I have been to a few places on High Street and they were pretty good. There are a lot of pizza places, and most places accept BuckID as a form of payment.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Ohio State University is located in the center of Columbus, so there are many places you can go to shop and hang out all around campus.

Party Scene: Ohio State University isn't really a party school, you can find the people who plan the parties but you can also find people who are diligent with their studies.

Scholarships: It's a headache to figure out what's going on with financial aid, but I would recommend sticking with it since Ohio State University is pretty expensive to attend.

Administration: Ohio State University is very strict when it comes to underage drinking, if you come back to the dorms drunk or if you're drinking in the dorms and you're underage, you're going to get in a lot of trouble. If you're 21 or older, you're allowed to drink in the dorms, but if you cause any disturbances, they have a zero-tolerance policy.

Off-Campus Dining: Student receive lots of discounts around campus, and it's not only with food. Student will get discounts on clothes and other stuff. A place that I would check out for your necessities would be Ohio Thrift, it's a second hand store, but they have new dish ware, shampoo, school supplies, and much more.

Campus Housing: It's very convenient to live on campus because most of your classes will be right around your dorm. There are also a lot of learning communities that I highly suggest you take part in.

Health & Safety: They have an escort service on campus, you just call them ahead of time, tell them where you'll be at and when and they'll be there to pick you up and take you to where you need to be. It's very convenient, especially if you don't want to walk around campus after dark.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is so much school spirit when it comes to sports at Ohio State University.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are a lot of signs and programs around to help victims of sexual assault, but even with those and the informative sessions there are about assaults, I still don't think enough people take it seriously.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most guys are the stereotypical colleges guys- there for parties and girls. Honestly, as a woman, I feel more unsafe on campus than I did in my hometown, but that's how it is in most of the world now. I am a little peeved that there isn't a 'how are the guys on campus' section. Unless it's further into the survey, it's a pretty dumb thing to only have one gender and not the other.

Campus Food: I love all of the shops and eateries on campus! They're really great, even if they're 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.
