3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I believe that at Ohio State, the scholarship selection process is focused a lot on ACT scores. I got a mere 27 on my ACT, but I had over a 4.0 in all Honors and AP classes and was involved in many community groups, honor societies, extra-curricular activities, and positions as an officer for these clubs and groups. So, my advice would be to take the ACT very seriously, as it is getting harder to get in to Ohio State as well as it is to get larger scholarships.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. I plan to do so throughout my academic experience at Ohio State. I have just completed my first year of school, where I lived in one of the largest and oldest buildings on campus. So, of course, it wasn't the most modernized or newly renovated dorm on campus. However, the programming and overall community built in that residence hall was remarkable. I made my greatest friends in that building, and even though it wasn't the greatest living arrangement, we all spent so much time there just enjoying both the programs put on by RA's as well as each other's company. For next semester, the building I lived in will be closed for renovations. However, there are four brand new, beautiful dorms that will be open for students starting in the fall. Residence Life on campus at Ohio State is great now, and it will be even better next school year.

Guys & Girls: There is no typical guy or girl look on campus. Everyone is unique and accepted for their individuality. I have not experienced a situation where someone is not accepted based on their looks, interest, dress, etc.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: High Street bars seem to have the most variety and options, drinking and non drinking. Nyohs Buckeye Bar and Grill is great for line dancing and they give lessons on Fridays!

4 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is strict in the most important area of safety and health of it's students which is so appreciated.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: As with most schools, you need to find your own scholarships and financial aid as the schools do not hand out money.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: So many different options for off campus dining. From fast food to local favorites to locally owned and operated diners and pubs, the variety of options available is great. Something for everyone.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Ohio State has a good food option for everyone. From vegetarians to gluten free to Kennedy Commons Steak night, Ohio State offers it all. Also very impressed with the quality of the food and all of the healthy options.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is far from campus and not the best quality. However, it is college so most do not expect luxury living conditions.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is a great variety of things to do. You have options between greek life, house parties, downtown clubs, and bars on High Street.

Off-Campus Dining: There are not a lot of healthy options but they are plenty of "college food" options to satisfy late night cravings.

Administration: Campus is strict when it needs to be for instances such as alcohol and drug use.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is not easy to get financial aid because if you don't meet their specific requirement, it is almost impossible to earn any type of aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It becomes very repetitive if you are trying to eat healthy. A lot of the entrees that seem "healthy" are loaded with poor ingredients, sodium, and additives. They should also try to cook with healthier oils such as olive, coconut, or avocado.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I got stuck in one of the worst dorms on campus. My floor was not social, making it very hard to meet people. It was very dirty and old which was unpleasant to live in. Also, it was very far from a lot of things on campus.

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.
