3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms can be great or they can be pretty bad. The newer dorms are very nice, while the older ones still lack AC. But the dorms are conveniently located near classrooms and dining locations and the social atmosphere is fun.

Greek Life: Most Greek students are not viewed any differently than non-Greeks. Some may act out the stereotypes, but not many. Greek housing does leave something to be desired, though.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Ohio State would definitely win a contest of school spirit. Most students care a great deal about varsity sports, but even the intramural and club sports matter. There's something for everyone.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health and safety on the campus is in good shape I'd say.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love my dorm (Baker West. It's one of the oldest ones on campus (we don't have A/C) but there's nothing bad about the building itself. It's always clean and my whole building is one big community. It made my first semester and the adjustment to not living at home much easier than it would've been if I lived in a different dorm.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life at OSU but I do know that there are plenty of fraternities and sororities, both socially-based and service-based.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's OSU. Varsity athletics are the biggest thing. Club and intramural sports are well-regarded. Our facilities are incredible.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've mainly taken classes in my major so far (music), but all of my professors and TAs have been very effective (for the most part) in engaging the classes and working with us to make sure we succeed.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't really know a lot about Greek Life. I've heard it's sort of hard to get into a sorority or fraternity.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Ohio State is known for its football team, and the rest of the athletic facilities are up to date and nice to be in.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't started classes here yet as I just transferred, but from visiting Ohio State I'm very excited and impressed.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Depending on the status of the students family and the people involved, it can sometimes sway the consequences of an attack. Also African American students are typically stereotyped within the crime alerts.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: While I have several great moments and achievements with the school. There are still enough incidents to make someone seek a change of pace.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus life is directly proportional to the level of enthusiasm you show and the initiative you take to meeting new people.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life while it has come a long way still has a long way to go to becoming reestablished and relevant in the OSU community.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The school is essentially centered around the OSU Football team. The school is internationally known for the athletic program.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far the school has provided many opportunities that I have not always been able to take advantage of. The only downside to the school is the close-mindedness of some of the students and the narrow view of some of the faculty.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It really depends on where you live. There are lots of options, some better than others.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics are a huge part of OSU. They make us what we are, buckeyes. When you think of the buckeye you think of THE Ohio State University football team!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities to make your college experience unique. You can graduate with hundreds of students with the same degree, but chances are each of you had a drastically different experience. There are awesome opportunities to get involved, such as clubs, service trips, and study abroad. You get out what you put in.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not really into getting in one. But if anyone really wants to, its not terribly difficult. It isnt easy though

5 College Freshman

Athletics: OSU has one of the biggest fan bases for its varsity sports!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a great big campus with a ton to offer. The fact that the campus is big can be overwhelming, but you can make it as small as a small liberal arts college! Definitely recommend!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors that I've had are wonderful. All are passionate about their subject and research. All professors are willing to sit down and talk with you, and help you learn.

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.
