Greek Life: Only 10% of students are involved in Greek life, and Greek students get along with non Greek students

Party Scene: There are plenty of bars and parties that you can go to any night of the week. The weekends will always have a party especially on the game days, but even on weekends without a game or away games people will still party and get together. Sunday football is a big thing no matter where you are and the bars are usually crowded.

Diversity: The acceptance here is some of the best I have ever seen. I came from a town where everyone was typically the same and now I have friends who were born in other countries and in my really close friends only two of us are even the same race. There are so many people here that you are going to find people here to fit in with. With that being said you are also bound to find someone who doesn't like you, but the number of people who do will greatly outnumber the one who doesn't.

Local Area: The local atmosphere is absolutely amazing. I came from a small farm town and now I live in the biggest city. This city has so much to offer and I really don't even have to leave my campus. Most of what I need is in walking distance and if not I can take a free bus ride to wherever in Columbus I need to go. I couldn't imagine a small town college.

Campus Food: The campus dining options are good but the dining halls are vary in their quality. For example, the one closes to me is probably the worst one on campus so if I want to eat at a dining hall I have to walk across campus or take a bus to the other dining halls so I can enjoy better food. Not to say I won't eat at the one by me, I just prefer the other ones because they are better quality.

Greek Life: There are a lot of different fraternities but very few sororities. So it is easier to get in if you are a guy than if you're a girl. We have a lot of people on campus which also make it hard to get in but that is just because we are such a big school. The housing is off campus chapter houses and they are really nice houses but some of them are older looking on the outside, though they have all been updated on the inside.

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.
