Weather: Nice and warmer here then in Cleveland. Best part is since I hate the snow is I don't have to worry about lake effect snow here.

Parking: It is very disappointing in the parking here. I have to take a bus all the way to west campus to get my car so I can work. This is my third year in college and I need to work.

College Sophomore

Local Area: I don't know to much about the other schools. I just stay here.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The bar scene is crazy. There are so many different people there. Transportation is easy cause I just have to walk everywhere.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am near everything where I only need a 10 minute walk. The only downside to this is no Air Conditioning.

Weather: No one comes here for the weather unless they like the cold. It's fine during early fall and spring months but miserable to walk through the cold on such a big campus during the winter.

Diversity: You meet a diverse range of people. However, foreign students usually interact only with each other and there is some xenophobia.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ohio State is an awesome school with great people and numerous opportunities.

Drug Safety: There's some hard drugs, but it's not noticeable. Students mostly drink but there's plenty of people who don't. RA's don't care as long as you don't dorm drink. Students know how balance partying with academics.

Local Area: Columbus is a pretty awesome city. There's always somewhere to go and it's not super dirty and gross. The free bus passes are great if you're bored and want to go anywhere from a mall to the zoo!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is apparently a big thing but I almost never hear from them outside of parties. I occasionally see them on recruiting weeks but that's about it.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It's a pretty average looking campus. No mega hotties and no super ugly people, either.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: There is wireless access almost EVERYWHERE on campus. I have only recently been having problems with it, but on my phone and tablet, it is never an issue.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: You need to learn to understand football and buy lots of red!! It is the central hub of OSU and you have to love it or you'll feel pretty left out on Game Days.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is OK. North campus has your own bathrooms, but they shove four people in a room that should only hold two.

Health & Safety: Campus Health and safety is a pretty cool organization, but they don't advertise themselves enough so you have to go online on your own to learn about them.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Ohio weather is awful. It's super windy and last week it was 70 degrees, now it's in the 20s.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It all depends on where you're at/where you live. North campus is a little more strict but it's worth it, while South campus can get a little too party-y.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options, but to get the best you want to have a lease secured before December rolls around...

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.
