I am from Columbus, so my parents have been taking me to OSU since I was six. I've wanted to attend this school ever since! The incredible size of the school has got to be one of my favorite qualities of the school. It's so easy to meet new people and everyone seems to be so nice and welcoming. You can find so many different groups of friends so you never get burned on with one. Everyone is also on the same page--that page being that education comes first, so there's an overall importance placed on learning and it's nice to know that you aren't the only one wanting to kick ass in chemistry.

I have had an overall great experience at OSU so far. I didn't really want to attend such a large school, but once you begin attending and find your niche, it doesn't actually feel very large. I also didn't want to attend classes with hundreds of people in them, but all of my classes are fewer than forty people (also, honors courses have an enrollment cap, which is nice). My professors are excellent and there is always plenty to do, and great places to eat nearby.

Although I am not a student at OSU, my sister, a current junior is. I have visited many colleges in many states, however the OSU campus is the most beautiful environmentally and the population. It is such diverse campus and is exactly what I imagine when I imagine a big college looks wise, however it is much easier to create relasonship then what someone might imagine, especially when the class sizes are kept pretty small.
