5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: While there are crimes and sexual assaults on campus, the authorities and security measures taken by the university do limit those experiences.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm life was a whole knew world to me. Living with someone 24/7 for a couple semesters was an eye opener. I learned how to share my space, and some of my things, and I learned to be a more open and trusting person. I believe that living in the dorms have made me a better person.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in a Greek family, but I have respect for those who are. It is hard to juggle being in Greek life and keeping one's grades up, so I do not know how they do it. I have many friends who are in Greek life and they love it, saying that it brought them closer with a wider variety of people.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The support system for the athletics programs, varsity and intramural, are outstanding. Ohio State has such a huge fan following, not just from the students and staff, but from people all over the nation and it is such a neat feeling to be a part of something so huge.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All of the staff are so eager to help you get where you want to in your life. They help you every step of the way and make the entire college experience so easy. I love how friendly everyone is, it makes being away from home that much easier.

Health & Safety: Alerts are sent straight to our phones once someone has talked to campus police. There are student safety vehicles everywhere, and can pick you up whenever need be.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are very easy to talk to and will always help you with whatever you need. I have loved all of the courses I have taken so far and cannot wait until the next semesters ahead.

Overall Experience: There are job fairs almost every week it seems like. The Alumni organization at Ohio State is so large, that I am not worried about looking for a job after graduation.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, it's great. Even if you don't get a newer dorm, the atmosphere in the residence halls are amazing and close to everything, whether it be school, food, or social life.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life community at Ohio State has done its job to have a great reputation and everyone is involved in their philanthropy events. If you don't join, there is still so much to do at Ohio State, but being in greek life does have a lot of benefits.

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.
