Diversity: I have met a great set of diverse people during my time here.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Some do drugs, some don't. Most people drink (at least in my circle) but you're not looked down upon if you don't. It's easy to find your niche at OSU because it is such a diverse, large campus.

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe while on campus and I know a lot of my friends have the same feeling.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've made connections with a few of my professors that I know I will keep beyond the classroom.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The college I am in does a great job at hosting networking events for students, there are plenty of career fairs throughout the year, and on-campus interviews make everything a lot easier. I am happy to have accepted a full-time offer upon graduating in May, and attribute that achievement to the awesome career center and the opportunities I was given at Ohio State.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: My experience freshman year was a little different because I lived on a floor with a lot of upperclassmen, but the rest of my building was great. I met my three best friends in my dorm and wouldn't trade my experience for anything.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I rushed my freshman year, but it ended up not being for me. With that being said I know many people that are involved in greek life and have had a good experience.

5 College Senior

Athletics: School spirit at Ohio State is insane. GO BUCKS!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Ohio State has plenty of opportunities for a wide range of students. While you have to be on the look-out for some, it's very easy to get involved on campus and pursue your passions.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great because it is easy to get to class. I don't have a car so public transportation is available.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy my classes and I believe that even the Gen ed requirements are helpful, even if they seem tedious at the time. The advisors are very helpful with planning out your degree program and making sure you have all the required classes.

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.

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.
