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.

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.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My favorite experience as an animal science major would be that my labs are extremely interesting! Every week for my lab we do something different that is related to an animal industry. Last week we were evaluating the swine industry and got the chance to artificially inseminate a sow. I have never been around a farm or animal industries, so it's great to see the agriculture side of things and get to experience it hands on. I have never been more excited to step out of my comfort zone as an Ohio State student, because I know 9/10 I am really going to enjoy what I do. If I had to go through the process again, I would save myself some money on applications and only choose Ohio State. Nothing is better than being a buckeye!

Health & Safety: For the most part, you will be fine. That being said I've had my bike stolen and other things do happen but if you use your common sense you will be fine. The campus is very safe its when you get off campus and go further south or east that you need to worry. Those neighborhoods are a bit sketchy as you go further towards downtown Columbus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At first, I was nervous coming to OSU since I'm from Michigan but after a couple weeks it already felt like home. I love the people (at least some of them), the classes are interesting (but some of your professors will be idiots, trust me on this), and I've found a place where I can grow as a student and as an individual.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Coming into college I personally didn't care for fraternities and thought they were what I had seen in Animal House and Old School, but after going to some rush events, I really got to know the guys and am so glad I went Greek. Some of the houses, however, do fit the stereotypes of frat bros who only wear vineyard vines and southern marsh and blonde sorority chicks, but there are others (like mine) that are full of genuinely good guys who are uniquely awesome in their own way.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football games at OSU are like nothing else. Athletics here are huge and whether it's varsity, club, or intramural, there's always a way to get involved and stay active. The facilities are top notch too just like our school spirit. Go Bucks!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ohio State is such a large school so I was apprehensive and thought I'd get lost in the crowd but I'm happy here because I've found my niche where I feel like I belong. My only complaint is that it's so hard to get to know your professors in your first couple years because, for the most part, you're taking GEs in large lecture halls so you don't get to know them on a more personal level.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There is a lot of fan support for football, sometimes too much. I wish they would ciphen some of that money to improving the resources provided to non-athletic students.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my undergraduate school. It is very easy to get involved and make your experience unique. Finding scholarships can be very difficult and sometimes feels like it's not worth the effort.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very concerned for student safety.

4 College Sophomore

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
