4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a member and it positively impacted my college experience.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The games are always super fun but overshadow academics.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall I've enjoyed all my classes, and have maintained relatively good grades in all of them, with the exception of Chemistry. The chemistry department at OSU, is the absolute worst, they add beyond unnecessary work, as well as the curves put in place generally hurts the students rather than raise them, which is beyond frustrating.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Once you're in a program your teachers really care. Before then, you are weeded out.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: OSU has these blue phones all across campus so if theres ever an emergency you can just press the button and help will be on the way. They also have cars that will drive you home 2 mile radius of campus, and they have a wonderful alert system to notify students of potential threats.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Rooming all depends on who you end up living with, and how hard it is to deal with them. Fortunately if you're stuck with someone you can't stand, OSU makes it easy to switch with someone else.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life had many different options for everyone, so if someone isn't necessarily all about the typical "greek life scene", OSU has something there for them too.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: OSU football is beyond exciting and fun to watch.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many different organizations anyone can join, and I've met so many unique, fun, and caring people through them, that I'm so grateful for.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I know about the Greek Life but I am not in it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: All the people are fans and the pride is big.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This was one of the best experiences that I have in my live. I learn a lot and grow as a person and as a student. I recommended this University to all the people that want to learn and want a very different education.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I never considered OSU to be a top choice of mine when applying to colleges. I didn't really know a lot about it, and threw the application on at the end. When I went to visit, I knew this would be the college for me and I was not wrong. This school has become my new home and I'm grateful everyday that I applied to this college out of the blue. I am completely head over heels for Ohio State and all that it holds including Academics, Athletics, Student Orgs, and Facilities. You can always meet someone new on campus no matter where you are or what you're doing. I'm so proud of my school and the fact I get to attend such a highly respected college.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone knows a buckeye somewhere. Once you're out of school, interviewing will be smoother once people hear where you graduated from. With a network of over 500,000 alumni, you're bound to have someone in a higher occupational position meeting you. Besides that, everyone knows how famous Ohio State is and how it's a great school.

Health & Safety: Most crime happens along High Street or on the outskirts of OSU campus. Whenever I walk across campus alone at night I feel slightly unsafe and book it to my room. After most game days, there's usually sexual assaults on campus. But, OSU safety sends out campus wide assault reports 3 DAYS after the assaults took place which is pretty ridiculous. Problems are rarely addressed on these issues. Also we're one of the very few well-known and highly respected universities without a Women's Health center which is extremely disappointing.

Campus Housing: Random roommates are assigned in a bizarre fashion so don't be surprised if you are paired up with someone you end up disliking. My floor personally was very catty and had way too much unnecessary drama which was unfortunate, but it happens.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The Football team dominates student life during the Fall season. You definitely feel a sense of unity and community during football season as we're all proud and pumped to see the Buckeyes win. There is an indescribable feeling being in The Shoe on game day surrounded by 100,000 people covered in Scarlet and Gray cheering on your school. Finishing the game with Carmen truly makes you proud of your school. Even after Football season, the Football team is still brought up on the daily by students and the players are treated like celebrities on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am so happy I ended up at The Ohio State University. The Athletics are second to none, the school spirit is spread throughout campus and everyone is proud to be a Buckeye. The Academics are phenomenal with a seemingly endless amount of options in regards to courses, majors, minors, and study abroad programs. Student Organizations here are so diverse and plentiful. You can find almost any type of org on campus that will appeal to you and that's the key to meeting a ton of friends.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love how helpful and understanding all of the staff is on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many jobs available on campus and the alumni and staff on campus makes finding the right job for you that much easier.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: While there are crimes and sexual assaults on campus, the authorities and security measures taken by the university do limit those experiences.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm life was a whole knew world to me. Living with someone 24/7 for a couple semesters was an eye opener. I learned how to share my space, and some of my things, and I learned to be a more open and trusting person. I believe that living in the dorms have made me a better person.

Greek Life: I am not in a Greek family, but I have respect for those who are. It is hard to juggle being in Greek life and keeping one's grades up, so I do not know how they do it. I have many friends who are in Greek life and they love it, saying that it brought them closer with a wider variety of people.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The support system for the athletics programs, varsity and intramural, are outstanding. Ohio State has such a huge fan following, not just from the students and staff, but from people all over the nation and it is such a neat feeling to be a part of something so huge.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All of the staff are so eager to help you get where you want to in your life. They help you every step of the way and make the entire college experience so easy. I love how friendly everyone is, it makes being away from home that much easier.

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.
