4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Due to financial reasons, Ohio State was actually the only school I could afford to attend. It was rough at first, especially having to live at home and commute, but since joining clubs and changing my major I've made a lot of friends.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I transferred to OSU after being at a small private school for a year. At my old school I had nothing to do and often couldn't be who I wanted to become. Here, though, at OSU I am able to do whatever I want and become the successful person I want to become in the future.

Overall Experience: The University is fantastic so far. The area surrounding the campus is great. I have a new dorm room. I will get to experience the four seasons for the first time. My classes are challenging and the people are friendly. The only downside so far is that I miss my dogs (and my family) -- but I wanted to go to school away from home.

Overall Experience: I loved OSU I attended the osu newark branch. My only problem was with how they transferred credits.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first school had a lot of activities to attend but there was a lot of disrespectful student that were at my school. They ruined games of all types. But the teachers and advisors were great at helping if you really wanted to take your schooling seriously.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ohio State offers something for anyone! The size may deter some, but it's easy to find a niche that suits you on this diverse campus. There are hundreds of clubs and sports programs, and the atmosphere surrounding OSU is always one of pride and school spirit. The academics are certainly doable, but they are no walk in the park either.

Overall Experience: The school is nice. But things like the surroundings and what the school spent the money on could be better.

Overall Experience: I've really enjoyed school so far. The only thing I would change is the wide range of random extra classes we are required to take. I see no need for myself, a computer science engineering student, to take sports or music classes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am really enjoying my time at the Ohio State University. I have never had a boring day on campus, unless it rains, then its super boring being stuck in a classroom. But the free food, the excellent professors and the amazing people you meet make the experience a little better. Tuition is high but that is because there are so many places available for students. One of my favorite experiences happened the week before classes began. My friend and I had entered a raffle to win this giant basket full of OSU goodies and a chance to meet the mascot, Brutus. I simply did it cause everyone else was doing it too. Who would have thought that I was one of the few candidates to actually win the basket! It was definitely a great start to the beginning of my college career.

Overall Experience: I'm very happy to have been accepted and enrolled in Ohio State. Although I did give some thought to other schools, I always felt that I would most enjoy attending and graduating from Ohio State. The courses are exciting and challenging, the campus is vibrant and dynamic, and the people are friendly and passionate about the university.

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.
