4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I stuff my face every day at Kennedy!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love being so close to High Street because there are so many options in walking distance.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I have had many friend get a way with a lot of things that are "impossible" to get by the RA and building staff. But I have also heard of people getting into a lot of trouble for similar things.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was super easy to apply and while I may have not got all I needed I did get quite a lot.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not the best but it could be a lot worse.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Very clean and had a very welcoming atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The best thing about dining on campus are the options that you have. The worst part is eventually you run out of variety or things that you like and it begins to get repetitive. Kennedy commons is the best commons area followed by North and then Morill.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is enjoyable. First years often get put into a quad room which can be tough for some.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Student discounts are not significant enough to offset the outrageous meal plan costs, but the variety of great tasting food is great.

3 College Freshman

Administration: About the strictest policy I have seen enforced is the required parking permit, unfortunately for me.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Ohio State has a single application for "special scholarships," basically any aid not given as entry grants and scholarships. This is great because it reduces the bulk of any and all scholarships to one app, but it is disappointing to put in all your information not knowing which faceless scholarships you may possibly win and it prevents one from fervently reaching out to individuals or committees for consideration. One person with an excellent GPA and service record may very well win all for all I know.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Among the very best on campus, for flavor and variety that is, are Woody's, for good pizza, and Sloopy's Diner, for practically everything else. Yet eating at these two places every day may pose to be inconvenient, expensive, and unhealthy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My brother currently resides in the Lane Avenue Residence Hall, a newly converted hotel to dorm set up for Engineering Scholars students, and for the price it is much less spacious than reasonably expected. Otherwise, the atmosphere is excellent.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The RPAC is the best part of campus

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Panda express, canes, Wendy's, tom and chee, just to name a few. Mainly chain restaurants meant for late nights, and quick semi-healthy food. I usually go there for lunch with friends or for a change from the dining halls.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Being a stickler for rules, I appreciate the stricter approach. However if you are a partier, drinker, or smoker, forget it.

Scholarships: Apply early, hope you're poor, and the most you'll get is loans

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The overly gourmet food can get repetitive and boring eventually. Don't go in looking for mac &cheese, plain pb&j's, or cheap healthy options. A sandwich can be $5-6.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team recently just won the NCAA National Championship and we have other amazing varsity men's and women's sports too!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since campus is very diverse, the dining atmosphere is very diverse!

5 College Freshman

Administration: Parking tickets are very hot right now within campus, so please follow regulations regarding parking within campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Almost impossible to get scholarships if you are not a straight A student. Certain colleges, especially new colleges, do not have scholarships for undergraduates set up yet. Try to apply for external scholarships if possible and get work study if needed.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Make sure that you are smart about your choices when going to parties, never go alone and never walk at night by yourself.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: They really pay attention to allergies, specific food request for vegetarians and vegans. Also very respectful of certain practices for specific religions.

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.
