4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Ohio State Alumni network is one of the most amazing aspects of this university. Alumni are ready and willing to help any student they can. Advisors and recruiters also do tremendous jobs of helping students to succeed in and after the college years.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't involve myself with these things because they are generally childish.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Why would you ask to review guys and girls but only have detailed, bulleted questions about women? I'm not answering this because it is rude and sexist and not what students should be basing their school choices on.

Athletics: This school is all about school spirit. I don't play or follow any sports, but year round, the college is all about their school spirit, especially concerning the football team.

College Freshman

Scholarships: For my first year, I was not eligible for financial aid, only student loans. The student loan process was smooth. I am currently awaiting financial aid right now, but the financial aid office said that at this point, all I have to do is wait. I suppose if that ends up being the case, the financial aid process will have also gone smoothly.

Party Scene: I don't party, but if parties, clubs, bars, and drinking are your favorite things, this place is full of it. I can't attest to campus bar/club prices or how fun they are, but they are absolutely everywhere and packed with students on the weekends. I tend towards more artsy hangouts, which are also available just south of campus in the Short North. Full of art galleries, finer dining options (not all suit and tie, but sure no chipotle), and a more sophisticated range of drinking options (there's even a meadery).

College Freshman

Administration: I don't live on campus, so I don't really have to abide by this set of rules. School policies, though, run as most school policies do (as far as the honor code/academic misconduct and attendance).

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, I've loved all of my professors. They've been very accommodating as far as my PTSD goes, and they've all been animated and fun to learn from.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: I honestly haven't researched this at all here, as even though I am going for a degree, I am looking to use it for entrepreneurial reasons, so it isn't pertinent for me to know.

College Freshman

Campus Quality: I've been attending Ohio State for the past year as a continuing education student. I can rate certain aspects of campus, but being an adult with an off-campus home and PTSD, I don't tend to spend time on campus outside of classes, except to the RPAC, which is fantastic.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: At Ohio State we have traditions and pride which I suspect would rival any organization in the country.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a great many off campus dining options.

4 College Junior

Administration: The school gives us enough rope to hang ourselves with.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have very little to complain about.

5 College Junior

Academics: Ohio State is very highly regarded in the sciences and nursing.

5 College Junior

Academics: There are so many opportunities that you can always find multiple classes open with multiple professors. The curriculum follows that of higher education standards in Ohio.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life is absolutely a valuable asset to the student body and community.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The few houses that I have lived in, or that friends have lived in, have all been great!

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is always something to do if you are not working or in class

4 College Junior

Diversity: We draw people from all over the world, it seems.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always feel pretty safe on campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The school did not offer me a good financial aid package.

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.
