4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe that it is a very good school that focuses on research and the future

5 College Junior

Athletics: The best and top rated athletic facilities.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school offers a variety of opportunities.

Health & Safety: The campus is very large and in the city, so it is always dangerous to walk alone at night. However, student safety services is always willing to pick students from anywhere on campus and take them home. The police are also always patrolling the neighboring streets and with such a large student body, it is easy to find a friend to walk home or crash with!

Overall Experience: The teachers love what they are doing. They are so happy to be here and they know exactly how to make students feel engaged and interested. For such a huge school, I genuinely feel as though my teacher put a lot of effort into my individual success.

Campus Housing: I got stuck in the worst dorm on campus so I haven't been a big fan of the housing here. However, a lot of my friends are in other dorms and are VERY satisfied with their living conditions. Also they are building a lot of new dorms next year.

Greek Life: Im in greek life and I love it so much! Obviously it isn't for everyone but I think it was such an amazing way to make friends. However, since this school is so huge, it is not necessary in order to have a social life so there is little divide between those in greek life and those who are not.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love it here. When I applied I barely considered it, but after visiting I immediately fell in love. Everyone here lives and breathes Ohio State and for obvious reasons. I never once have regretted my decision and I honestly don't think I could have ended up at a better school! Go Bucks!

Athletics: Ohio state has excellent athletic programs. I go to the mansfield campus so I do not get the full experience but I am proud to be a buckeye

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Im a student at Ohio state Mansfield campus and overall it is just underwhelming. I love the institution but the campus is somewhat depressing.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: OSUPD does a good job at patrolling and responding to emergencies and with the blue light emergency buttons place around campus and near off campus housing, they are doing their best to respond to emergencies.

Campus Housing: Housing is decent, it is often clean and nice in Park Stradley but some of the dorms like Baker or Canterbury are kind of nasty and mildewy.

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.

4 College Junior

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.

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.
