4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety actually on campus is very good. There are buttons on poles all over campus that will call the police and bring them to that spot where you pressed the button. There are free services that you can call at night and they will come and pick you up in a car and take you wherever you would like to go on campus. Some of the places where people that off campus can be a bit scary but that just means to be careful and never walk alone.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have never had any problems with a professor, sometimes there are some older professors that do things differently than usually but it is easy to cope to that. SOme of the class sizes are huge which to some people they wouldn't like that. But only the lectures are big, a large class like that will always have a small recitation where you get one on one experience with the teacher.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University tries very hard to give every student the opportunity to find a job after they graduate. It is a big deal to employers if someone has a degree from The Ohio State University.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Any college you go to there is going to be small rooms and not so good quality for the older dorms, the new dorms are very nice and closer to campus. But really it is what you make of the dorm experience not where you sleep at night.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not part of the greek life here, but it seems to be very fun. They always have something going on and there are always people around you that you can count on.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: All of the Athletic teams are amazing, these are some of the best people in the country that play for Ohio State in athletics no matter what the sport. And every game has a student section and is a great time to go watch. Whether it is football, basketball or lacrosse there is always a good time to be had at a sporting event.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: When you go to The Ohio State University there is so much pride to be held. Everything on campus revolves around how awesome the history of the school is. Not to mention our football team is amazing so its always fun to go to the Ohio Statedium or what we call The Shoe and have a great time at a football game.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The Ohio State University has so many options for housing. There are many flexible plans and houses all over campuses.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life at my school is very versatile and many of them are involved with non-profit foundations. A lot of our greek life revolves educating students on many topics such as culture and different majors.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit and school sports are extremely important to my school. We take pride in our school and athletics.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has helped me develop unique assets to prepare me for the future occupations and additional schooling.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been rare incidents this past academic year, but that is really unpreventable for a campus so large. There are a wide variety of resources to protect the health and safety of OSU students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ohio State really does have something for everyone. There is such a wide variety of every kind of thing that you might be looking for, that no matter what you want out of a school, there is that somewhere at Ohio State.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Because Ohio State is so big, its alumni network is unlike any other. There is bound to be OSU alumni wherever you might be looking for a job, which is huge for networking and finding jobs for after graduation.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The new dorms are incredibly nice and are beautiful. The housing process is relatively simple, and the social atmosphere in the dorm setting is always busy and friendly.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Ohio State is more laid-back than at other universities, which makes it 100x better. Every sorority and fraternity attends each other's events and supports each other, and the whole Greek community is strong and passionate about what they are doing.

Athletics: Ohio State football: enough said. The atmosphere in regard to athletic events is incredible. Everyone here is proud to be a Buckeye.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ohio State is everything that a student could ask for when looking for a college. The location is perfect, the campus is beautiful, the academics are well-known and respected, the football is undisputed, and the student body is cohesive and supportive. There is no place like it.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, the university itself is great. I would love school if it wasn't for the housing situation I'm in. I'm in a very bad living situation with three people who are breaking many serious laws, and the university is aware, however nothing is being done about it. I am very disappointed in the university and how non-proactive they're being and how inefficient the reporting process is. All of my roommates have been in trouble many times and have been to the student conduct office many times, and still nothing is being done. Sad to see such a great university fail in such an important aspect of the college experience.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: It can feel unsafe at times, but usually only really late at night. During the day, I always feel extremely safe when I'm alone on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: In general, the classes are great. Every once in a while you'll have a class you don't like. In my experience, it was usually because the topic didn't interest me very much (gen ed classes you just have to take) and didn't have to do with the professors. I have always had very positive experiences with all of my classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think the student career prospects from Ohio State University are pretty good. There are so many people who have graduated from here, so the alumni network is HUGE. I was just in Boston a month ago, and met four people who had gone to Ohio State University. It seems like everywhere around the country there are people who have gone here.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I actually don't live on campus, but when looking for a place to live, it wasn't too difficult. Some of the nicer places are too expensive though. Places that are actually affordable (at least for me) are places that are falling apart and in general, do not seem very safe. However, you can get a good, safe place. It is just going to cost more money.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There is really not a lot of Greek life at Ohio State. I am not a part of Greek life, but I have a couple of friends who are. It's not a big deal if you are or aren't. It's not a very important aspect of our school.

5 College Junior

Athletics: GO BUCKS! There is a TON of fan support for the Ohio State football team! It is so much fun! There is always a lot of spirit and a lot of people even travel to the games! Also, the RPAC is a great gym to work out in.

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.
