4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a great big campus with a ton to offer. The fact that the campus is big can be overwhelming, but you can make it as small as a small liberal arts college! Definitely recommend!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors that I've had are wonderful. All are passionate about their subject and research. All professors are willing to sit down and talk with you, and help you learn.

Overall Experience: Your advisor is the best person to go to about career advice. They know everything about how to get jobs, internships, and research opportunities on campus. Also, they have knowledge of what past students have done with their degrees, and how esay a certain degree gets you a job in the future.

Health & Safety: This campus is close to downtown columbus, and there are always a few things that happen every once in a while. However, the university does its best to keep the students safe. There are emails and texts that warn students of unsafe situations.

Campus Housing: The new dorms on north campus are very nice. Some of the older dorms on south are not as nice. Especially the ones without air conditioning.

Athletics: The Athletics at the school are among the best in country. The student support is 100% behind Ohio State Athletics. With recent success in football, Saturdays during football season are crazy. Fans are all around the Shoe. Tailgating engulfs the stadium. Being inside the stadium is a whole other story. The Shoe is packed to the brim with fans in a sea of SCARLET and grey. Not red, scarlet. The atmosphere is alive with fans cheering and the student section screaming and heckling the opponent. After leaving the games my throat is always sore from screaming and cheering the whole game. The football team is the main sport at Ohio State but other varsity sports are national contenders like wrestling, fencing and synchronized swimming. No matter what sport, the student athletes are among the best in the country. The best game of the whole year is the game against that team up north.

The athletic facilities like gyms, basketball courts, and tennis courts are top notch. There are various places around campus where all students can exercise and play various sports.

Overall Experience: The Ohio State University is a big campus with a lot of opportunity. I did not visit the campus, nor had I previously been on campus. I knew I wanted to be a Buckeye because of the vast potential the university has to offer me and the overwhelming Buckeye pride I have witnessed my whole life as a Buckeye fan. What makes OSU unique in my mind is its diversity and gain alumni base. There are people from cornfields of Nebraska to city of Shanghai, China that are currently going to or went to OSU. There are 500,000 Buckeye Alumni around the world.

I am engineering major at Ohio State. The classes are unique and challenging. The intro to engineering classes give you a brief taste of what the field of engineering has to offer. My favorite thing about the classes was the AEV (Advanced Energy Vehicle) my engineering group designed. The faculty gave my group relatively free rein on how to design the vehicle but the AEV had to complete a track with specific tasks to complete. I enjoyed how the classes allowed me to develop a design of my own and gear myself toward engineering.

I would choose this school again in a heartbeat because of the vast Buckeye fan base and pride and because of the potential directions I can take my future career.

Greek Life: Provides me an opportunity to socialize and the philanthropy program allows me to give back while working with my fraternity brothers. Not too demanding of my time either and the fraternity wants me to be a good student.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great professors, tutoring opportunities and guidance counselor help.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Very well-known business program. I got a summer job working in and learning warehousing, logistics and product packaging after just my freshman year.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They do a good job cleaning the bathrooms, elevators are fast and the A/C works good.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: OhIo State is filled with spirit. Each kid on campus LOVES the buckeyes which makes for close classes and an overall unity. It has gentrfied Columbus with its unique position in the inner city. The whole state of Ohio backs the Buckeyes making going to Ohio State feel like something special, and much more than just getting a degree, but being one with your state and many other states for that matter. Simply yell "O-H" in an any state and expect to find another buckeye with a proud yell of "I-O" back. Being a buckeye is not just a college experience, it's a lifestyle.

Drug Safety: There is a drug and alcohol policy on campus/residence halls. Students who live in the halls that are 21 or older are allowed to have alcohol in the room but are not allowed to share with others. Since the campus is near downtown student who are 18 and older have access to go out if they desire.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It has been amazing to have had the opportunity to be in college studying what I love and getting a degree in the field. So far I have had the time of my life and have made amazing friends because of the classes and courses that I have taken. I also like the class sizes because it is easy to either stand out of blend in with the rest of the class.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from this University is a big deal for the job I will be looking for when I graduate. The dance major at Ohio State is seen as one of the best in the country. When looking for a job I will be fully prepared to take on any audition or interview.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I would say that Ohio State does take caution whine comes to sexual assaults and dangers around campus. The school alerts the students through texts and email because they want to make sure the students are aware and safe.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My first year I lived in Morrill Tower and it was a walk to class but I didn't mind that much and if I didn't feel like walking I could take the bus. Morrill was nice to live in because of all the people that I lived with and the friendliness of the floor. I knew everyone on my floor because we all kept our doors open to make friends. I know that my suite door was open the whole year because we always had people over just hanging out. It was one of the most fun things I had experienced in college. Some of my friends just couldn't understand how I knew so many people and it was mostly because of my residence hall.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I really don't know much about Greek life and what they do for the community. All I really know is that I have a few friends that are in a sorority and on Monday nights they have a meeting.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Ohio State has the RPAC, which is used by the students, and it has multiple levels of work out equipment. On the different levels there are gyms where basketball, volleyball, racket ball, indoor soccer, and other sports are played. It also has multipurpose rooms for dance, yoga, zumba, and cycling classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had the opportunity to learn from teachers and TA's. In my experiences with the teachers and TA's I have seen that they are interested in the student and well they do. They want to see the student succeed and pass the class and they want to do well so the student can do so. Sometimes in large classes it is hard for the teacher to know all of the students but they make an effort to try and get to know the student. That is something that made me feel that I chose the right school along with my major of study.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm life was a great way to meet friends but it is much cheaper to live off-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.
