Campus Housing: I live in a room with 3 other girls. It's rough. There is barely enough space for us to live and privacy is non-existent. But I know of other campus housing options with much better conditions.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The RPAC is one of the top facilities in the country and school sports are of a high priority to the university.

Overall Experience: All of the professors that I have had while attending this school have been good. All of them have been helpful and are willing to meet with students at office hours. My chemistry professor writes very hard tests compared to many of the others, but there is also a bigger curve.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school does a good job of providing a large variety of job/internship opportunities. I know students that have traveled across the country for internships. Also Ohio State is a very well known school and a degree from this school is held in high regard.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is not bad. I like where I live, but there are some better/newer options. Everyone on the floor that I live on gets along pretty well. The bathrooms are cleaned daily, but living with a bunch of college kids they can get pretty nasty, especially on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not know very much about the Greek life on campus. I do know that there are many options and that there is something that everyone could enjoy if they choose. There are some fraternities that party all the time, but there are also some that are religious and do not throw parties.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at The Ohio State University are amazing. Football is the most popular of the sports and there are thousands of students and fans that attend the games to support the team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are challenging, but as long as you put in the time and effort you will be fine. It is also very easy to get involved in on and off campus groups and activities. The sporting events are great and if you like to party there are lenty of optins for that too.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are very few report on crime on campus and I have never felt unsafe walking back to my dorm late at night. The university also issues a short web assignment to know how to handle a sexual assault situation which I found to be incredibly informative.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All of my professors thus far have done everything to ensure that I get the most out of my education. My academic advisor is basically my go to person for ANYTHING, not just school. If you are interested in anything there is defiantly a faculty member to connect with and build you networking resources.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am a prospective vet student, but have recently found that I love research. If i continue this and realize that this is what I love to do then I'm also thinking about graduate school. This university has opened so many doors for me in my first year here. I have been able to see what I like and don't like early o which is beneficial for those professional school applications that come out your third year of college. I'm grateful for the opportunities handed to me, like taking a study abroad to Nicaragua!

Campus Housing: Living on campus is an experience every college student should have. You learn how to conserve laundry detergent as well as find many different ways to cook ramen noodles. I have met some of my best friends within my residence hall and couldn't be happier to spend next year on campus rooming with them. My class was the first to require to live on campus for two years, which I find helpful in getting to class and not having to worry about rent, utlities, or any other little expenses that come with renting an apartment.

Athletics: I am apart of the equestrian team and I never even knew that there was one until I came to campus. There are so many diverse teams including basketball and football. Football games in the fall were absolutely amazing. The traditions that you do as a buckeye really make you feel connected to each other and the university. Theres defiantly no signs of lack in school spirit around this campus, especially when it comes to xichigan week.

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.
