3 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's a large city and students should remember that when applying. They should remember that in large cities they need to drink more responsibly and stay with a group.

Overall Experience: Whenever I tell people what university I'm going to they think that it's impressive. I get that same feeling from employers. Also they offer many internships and jobs that aid students in getting job experience.

Greek Life: I don't know very much about this.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The campus revolves around sports, but I'm too busy to get involved.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's been an awesome experience overall being in such a lively school with a bunch of students that also love their school.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Crime is hardly an issue due to the great law enforcement/police we have. Personal Safety is great, at ngiht we have Student Safety Services where they can drive you home/to if you have a long walk at night. The only bad thing is they fill up quickly. I always feel safe on campus. There are also emergency lights spread out on campus in case something happens. Not only that, we are always made aware of any crimes, safety issues etc on campus immediately by text message, email and/or twitter tweets.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of variety in classes, but the size can be crazy. My classes can range from 100-300 students. You do get waitlisted a lot being that the class demand is so big but the amount of seats are low.

Overall Experience: The quality of the career center/services are amazing. The staff is always there to help you with whatever you need. Alumni's are very involved in the community, and they are continually making OSU better. The employers are committed to their work and genuinely care about their students.

Campus Housing: The residence halls are by far amazing. The staff are always a call away when you need an emergency-even after hours. They have knowledge of a lot of resources on campus to help you succeed. They are always there when you need them. it is a very supportive environment.

Athletics: OSU were national champions in football in the 2014-2015 school year. The football team is practically unbeatable. If football is not your style, there is basketball, tennis, hockey, volleyball, lacrosse and so much more. If you don't want to play big, you can the club sports. No matter the sport, each sport is valued on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experience being at OSU is STEP(Second-year Transformational Experience Program)-This is only school that provides this program for their students. What STEP is, providing students with support that allows them to grow individually and academically. Through the help of staff and facility, students are able to learn tools that will further them in life and prepare them for the future. Students get the resources for studying abroad, internships, service-learning and much more. STEP even provides $2,000 fellowship to help you get there.

Not only does this school provide STEP, it also has so much school spirit and love. From the OH-IO chants on football games, Script Ohio(marching band), to the ability to make a big campus small. You are never alone on campus due to the amount of clubs, opportunities, jobs etc.

Drug Safety: Underage drinking is heavily enforced, especially in the dorms

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Campus safety is taken seriously. Threats are few and far between and the department of student safety informs students when they should be extra vigilant

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Most of the residence halls are up-to-date and fairly cushy. Located on campus, they're generally closer to your classes and have plenty of food options.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The campus has multiple gyms and they're all readily equipped. If that's not your thing, there's lots of club sports and activities like rock climbing and kayaking.

Health & Safety: As a female, I generally don't feel comfortable walking by myself after dark. Not because I think that Ohio State is a problem, but because everywhere you go, there are really messed up people.

Overall Experience: Ohio State is diverse in people, courses, style, architecture, professors, and class sizes. It has so much variety and is awesome for anyone looking for diversity close to home.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'd say that at least half of the students that actively attend Ohio State, work there as well. It's very easy to find a job and they offer tons of career/job fairs at a variety of times for students to attend.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The space is kind of small compared to living off-campus or commuting.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It just sucks for people who can't afford to be apart of that life. I'm sure it's a blast if you have money, though.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have plenty of options for student involvement in athletic facilities and other team-related activities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Literally everyone wants nothing but to help you. Professors, TA's, Grad students, our peers, everyone is so willing to do what it takes to benefit everyone else. It a good feeling.

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.
