5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My professors are very intelligent and actually want to help us (students). I like how the tuition isn't as expensive as the other colleges around me are and I like how I can get my degree without going to the main campus.

Student Body: Because I live in a very small, rural area, there isn't much diversity to begin with. Most of the population are white, middle class Republicans, followed by African-Americans. I am half-Filipino, and although there seems to be a growing Asian population, there still isn't a very large Asian population in the area. That being said, OUE isn't the most diverse of schools. The student body is predominantly white. However, most of the students are acceptable of minorities. Very, very rarely do I come across a student who is racist or homophobic or anything of the sort.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Up until this year, I had no problem with the financial aid office at OU. Everything was processed and I had my refund by the first day of class. However, at the start of this current semester, one of my scholarships was lost somewhere in the office. It wasn't processed until about a month into the semester, and I didn't get a refund check for another week.

Overall Experience: OUE was a last minute choice for me. I started at The Ohio State University, but the campus size and class sizes intimidated me and I didn't see myself doing well there. I applied and was accepted to OUE the Friday before the fall semester started, all thanks to the office staff at OUE. They got me registered, gave me a schedule, and got me to class all in the first day of classes. Not only did they do all of this for me in such a short period of time, but they also found me a scholarship that covered my tuition for my first two years there.

When I graduated from high school, I was a Buckeye. There were no other schools I wanted to attend. Now, I'm in my third at OUE and I love it. Sure, I'll have some issues with the school every now and then, but I am actually very glad I ended up at OUE. I've made great friends there, my professors actually know me by name and are pushing for me to get into grad school, and I get to stay at home with my family. If I had to go back and pick between staying at OSU or coming to OUE, I'd still come to OUE.

Academic Experience: Given that exercise physiology is one of the largest majors, if not the largest, at OUE, the faculty and staff take pretty good care of us ex phys students. However, there are some things I believed could be improved. Our curriculum is challenging, but not impossible. Of all the classes we take and professors we have, there are really only two professors and four classes we have a problem with. They are the hardest classes taught by the two hardest professors, yet they're only offered once a year. If you don't pass, you're pushed back a year in graduation. Our facilities aren't state-of-the-art, but they're not ancient either. We can still get our work done with what we have. As for internship and job opportunities provided by the school, there really aren't any. If you want a job or internship, for the most part, you have to find them yourself.

Academic Experience: Most of the professors at OUE are awesome. There are few here and there that seem to be the pickiest of graders and their classes are impossible to pass, but they're smart people and know their stuff. Maybe they're just not the best of educators. Curriculum isn't hard or ridiculous. Most of our major requirements meet graduation requirements, which make it easier to get classes done.

2 College Sophomore

Student Body: OUE is mostly white and black students. I think there's maybe one or two who are Asian and/or Hispanic. I think it's still a lot like high school. There are cliques everywhere; some are acceptive, some not so much.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: For what I'm paying, I think I'm getting a decent education. I have a scholarship that covers most of my tuition, so I can't complain too much. I've never really had too much of a problem with financial aid, but I know many students who have.

2 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online classes at OUE are your typical online classes. You have online quizzes, submit everything online, and of course discussion boards. In my opinion, they're convenient for fulfilling degree requirements, but I don't really learn anything.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Because OUE is such a small school, it doesn't offer much. We have 14 bachelor degree programs, all which students are supposed to be able to complete at OUE, but usually this isn't the case. There are no dorms, so there's really no campus life or social scene on the campus itself. We have a gym and a basketball court, but that's about it. OUE doesn't offer too much "unique" opportunities, either. About the only thing "unique" it offers is an internship when during your last semester, but many schools offer that.

Academic Flexibility: Ohio University Eastern wasn't my first choice for school. I started at Ohio State but because of my residency location, things didn't work out. I moved back home a week later not knowing if I'd find a school to go to, let alone start on time. Of the local colleges and universities, OUE wouldn't be my first choice. But because of tuition costs, OUE was all I could afford. I enrolled on the first day of classes and was, fortunately, able to attend my classes that same day.

I left Ohio State because I lived on one side of campus and my classes were on the opposite side. With 15 minutes between classes, numerous construction zones, and a roughly 3-square-mile campus, this was intimidating to me as a freshman. So I love the fact that OUE is only two buildings. I also love that my class sizes are so small. It's easier to get a professor's attention if I need help, and lab's aren't too packed.

What I don't like about OUE is our course schedule. It's never the same every semester or year, so it makes it hard to plan ahead. Another problem with scheduling at OUE is that a lot of the classes I need are only offered once a year and usually at the same time as another class I need. The only way around this is to either go to another OU regional campus (the closest being 90 minutes away) or take online classes (if they're offered online).

I love being at OUE because it's small and close to home. I get to stay at home, rent free, and continue to work. But if scheduling becomes too much of a headache, I'm afraid I'll have to transfer to another school in hopes of graduating on time.

Campus Resources: The athletic facility is the best thing on campus. It is practically new, with machines, a court, all the jazz you'd expect of a gym (no pool) and they offer classes for aerobics, yoga, etc. The library is small, doesn't really have a large selection of materials, classrooms are bare- sort of reminds me of a white walled mental institution- there is no student center and barely any clubs or student activities.

1 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The academic experience here is horrible! I transferred in from a University in Pittsburgh when the tuition was raised making it unrealistic for me to stay and I could tell within the first week of classes at OUE that I had transferred to a University with low academic challenges and standards. Since being a student at this university I have been left unchallenged academically, found little to motivation of their part to make necessary changes to make this a more challenging and beneficial academia facility and found myself becoming unconcerned with my effort because I knew I could produce high level grades without doing even minimal level work. It disgust me to see the poor quality of academics here and that I have to pay for it. Because of their horrible academics, poor administrators, employees lacking knowledge enabling them to effectively do their jobs and my rising depression at being here, I am making the decision to transfer before things get worse.

1 College Sophomore

Career Services: There is no alumni network for students at the eastern branch, there is no career center unless your willing for drive two and half hours to main campus and most students will not get a job in the local area upon graduation due to poor major options and lack of actual employment opportunities in the area.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is reasonable for the quality of education you are receiving (which is not high standard- I call it a marginally higher level high school). There is a lack in degree choices and low quality professors- however there are some gems professors as well, you just have to find them. There are little to no financial aid available unless you are a pell recipient and almost always expect them to mess you tuition and aid up at least once a year if you are lucky.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Not Very Flexible – So far the courses are offered one time and that is what I must register for. Many of my classes conflict or are spread apart. This makes it difficult for me because I live an hour away with three school-aged children.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: From what I have seen, the resources are good. There are plenty of computers and the network was reliable.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are many resources on campus such as the library, computers, and help labs. There is also a gym on campus along with a cafeteria. The advisors are readily available and willing to help whenever the need arises.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Academic Flexibility – I have not had any issues with class schedules. I am a non-traditional student and can only attend evening classes and so far I have not had any problems finding evening classes that will fulfill my requirements towards my major.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: OUE - a Great Choice! I have been absolutely pleased with my choice to attend OUE. I find the faculty and staff to be welcoming and accommodating in all circumstances . The classes have all been engaging and I feel I am getting a great education.

2 College Junior

Student Body: Young Students – I would say that most of the students I encountered were tradtional, young, fresh-out-of high school students. Many that I met had come to OUE directly from the local area high school. Alot of the students seem to have grown up with their fellow students. Ethnicity seemed to consist of mainly caucasians, which can make other races feel uncomfortable, such as myself being a Pakistani-American.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Not So Great – At first glance it seems the tuition at Ohio University Eastern is reasonable onsidering you'll be receiving a degree from an accredited University. However, I did not get much guidance from any of the concelors, including the financial aid department. I do not think that the tuition students are paying at OUE is worth it. The professors are never eager to answer students' questions; they seem more interested in discussing their personal lives then the actual topic being learned. Not to mention their is very little when it comes to food in this school. The "cafeteria" consists of re-heated junk that is over-priced. I did receive financial aid, but it was not enough. I have had to take a quarter off because I will have to pay for an entire past quarter. Unless I can get a scholorship, I won't be able to return to school. This is very sad considering for most of my schooling I have had a 4.0 GPA.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Low Tuition and Good Scholarhips – The tuition at OUE is rather low compared to many universities, and the scholarship opportunities are adequate. In fact, OUE recently lowered there tuition.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Outstanding Computer Labs and Wifi – The campus has three computer labs: one in the library and two on the second floor. The computer lab in the library has both MAC and PCs. The PCs are equipped with Windows 7. All of the computers are connected to a readily accessible printer. Also, the computers are connected to a fast computer network. Finally, there is campus wide Wifi that is quite fast. In fact, I have pushed the Wifi network by successfully watching a show on Hulu in HD.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Apathetic High-School Graduates – The majority of the students on the campus are apathetic in their studies. Although the professors and administration does an excellent job, the majority of the students I have met do not do their part. There are some serious students, but among the majority there is a general lazy attitude. The students do come to class very regularly, but they are not completely dedicated to their work. There are a few exceptions to this general group though. A few serious high-school to college students, and the adult students are serious in their work.
