4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If it wasn't for the financial aid I would not be going to this school, it's that simple. I would have to go to a community college

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is pretty expensive for what you get and I'm a commuter so it's coming straight out of my pocket not a meal plan. I usually end up eating off campus or bringing my own food.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are some really genuinely kind and fun people to meet on this campus. There are also a lot of attractive people on campus. They're pretty awesome. There is also a lot of diversity of people and cultures.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved my time at THE Ohio State University, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. The amount of school pride here is amazing, and fosters a feeling of community. Singing Carmen with random strangers is automatically a bonding experience. There are over 1,000 clubs and student organizations on campus, and the sheer number of people makes it impossible not to find your place here. There are opportunities everywhere no matter what your major may be. There is always something happening on campus, and there is always something to do. Fair warning, you will be stressed and busy and tired, but you'll meet some truly great people who may become your best friends. I am so proud to be a Buckeye. Also, if you're a football fan, this is the place to be. #NationalChamps

Athletics: National Champs! We will be saying that all year. Ohio State is known for athletics. They have awesome academics, of course, but when most people hear OSU, they think sports. It's definitely a part of our culture, and most of us love that!

Greek Life: I'm indifferent on Greek life, but I know there are and lot of choices, and there is a lot of variety.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options as far as type of housing (apartment, house, etc.) and landlords, but prices anywhere near campus are going to be pretty high for anything decent. Lower prices farther from campus, but it's a trek.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of variety.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They're pretty strict on what they should be and lenient on what they shouldn't. They're just trying to do their jobs and keep people safe. I think they do a good job of using common sense on what they can control and what is going to happen on a college campus.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Say what you want about the quality of food, but compared to other schools my friends go to or I've visited, Ohio State has way more variety and options, and they have some really good (and sometimes even healthy) places to eat.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Basically, you're going to live in a quad, which is tiny, but it's college, so that's fairly standard. As long as you can get along with your roommates and make friends with people in your dorm, you're going to have a great time regardless of the tiny living space because you can make a little space seem big.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Awesome and so much variety! I will be living in University Village next year, and they accommodated with all my requests!

Off-Campus Dining: I work at the Starbucks on High, so I am definitely always off-campus dining. It is wonderful!

4 College Freshman

Administration: Overall pretty great! They could use more surveillance with underage drinking and smoking on campus. I feel pretty safe overall on campus!

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Didn't receive a scholarship I was qualified for.

Party Scene: I stay out of it!

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.

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.
