3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't really know a lot about Greek Life. I've heard it's sort of hard to get into a sorority or fraternity.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Ohio State is known for its football team, and the rest of the athletic facilities are up to date and nice to be in.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't started classes here yet as I just transferred, but from visiting Ohio State I'm very excited and impressed.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Depending on the status of the students family and the people involved, it can sometimes sway the consequences of an attack. Also African American students are typically stereotyped within the crime alerts.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: While I have several great moments and achievements with the school. There are still enough incidents to make someone seek a change of pace.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus life is directly proportional to the level of enthusiasm you show and the initiative you take to meeting new people.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life while it has come a long way still has a long way to go to becoming reestablished and relevant in the OSU community.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The school is essentially centered around the OSU Football team. The school is internationally known for the athletic program.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far the school has provided many opportunities that I have not always been able to take advantage of. The only downside to the school is the close-mindedness of some of the students and the narrow view of some of the faculty.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It really depends on where you live. There are lots of options, some better than others.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics are a huge part of OSU. They make us what we are, buckeyes. When you think of the buckeye you think of THE Ohio State University football team!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities to make your college experience unique. You can graduate with hundreds of students with the same degree, but chances are each of you had a drastically different experience. There are awesome opportunities to get involved, such as clubs, service trips, and study abroad. You get out what you put in.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not really into getting in one. But if anyone really wants to, its not terribly difficult. It isnt easy though

5 College Freshman

Athletics: OSU has one of the biggest fan bases for its varsity sports!

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.

5 College Sophomore

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.

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.
