Campus Housing: I live with 3 other girls and we have our own bathroom, so that is nice, but when it was supposed to be cleaned over the breaks, it wasn't. I also feel like it isn't as spacious as it could be for 4 people.

Off-Campus Dining: I was born and raised in Columbus not too far from campus, and I love the local spots we have around. They're super unique and even the chains are different like Tom & Chee and Cane's. I have a long list of places to take out of town visitors when they ask to try local cuisine

Administration: I can't say I've really had to deal with administration in my time here, and I haven't done anything that would need to

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If it wasn't for the financial aid I would not be going to this school, it's that simple. I would have to go to a community college

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is pretty expensive for what you get and I'm a commuter so it's coming straight out of my pocket not a meal plan. I usually end up eating off campus or bringing my own food.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are some really genuinely kind and fun people to meet on this campus. There are also a lot of attractive people on campus. They're pretty awesome. There is also a lot of diversity of people and cultures.

Overall Experience: I have loved my time at THE Ohio State University, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. The amount of school pride here is amazing, and fosters a feeling of community. Singing Carmen with random strangers is automatically a bonding experience. There are over 1,000 clubs and student organizations on campus, and the sheer number of people makes it impossible not to find your place here. There are opportunities everywhere no matter what your major may be. There is always something happening on campus, and there is always something to do. Fair warning, you will be stressed and busy and tired, but you'll meet some truly great people who may become your best friends. I am so proud to be a Buckeye. Also, if you're a football fan, this is the place to be. #NationalChamps

Athletics: National Champs! We will be saying that all year. Ohio State is known for athletics. They have awesome academics, of course, but when most people hear OSU, they think sports. It's definitely a part of our culture, and most of us love that!

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.
