Off-Campus Dining: It's good on a weekend when you're drunk

3 College Freshman

Administration: They can only do so much

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't enjoy partying with people I don't know

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: There should be more options for traditional plans

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The walls are extremely thin, which cause problems

Off-Campus Housing: There are some very nice options, but I have friends who live on Mill, Palmer, High, and Milliron who pay around $600 a month, and their houses get completely trashed all spring.

Off-Campus Dining: There are very few healthy options. I would be terrified to see the nutrition facts on any of the food on Court Street.

Administration: With the exception of parking inconveniences, I think the administration does fine keeping the University in order. They give us enough freedom to figure things out ourselves and learn to live alone, but we still have restrictions on necessary occasions.

Party Scene: There's always a group of drunk, sweaty guys trying to get my phone number or "buy me Big Mama's". I would rather sit in my room and watch Netflix alone than leave with one of those guys.

Scholarships: I never got to speak with a financial advisor and I was unaware that I had to accept my student loan until October/ November when they'd already charged me for being late.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: As a healthy eater, I wish there were more healthy options to choose from. I'm not worried about what "tastes good" to everyone else. I just don't want to fill my body with junk.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is nice, everything is fairly close. But there is not much around the campus, and since Freshmen can't have cars we are very limited to what types of activities we participate in. It seems like drinking and partying is all there is to do, and the bars are open- and full even on weeknights. It's not my idea of a learning environment.

3 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food on campus is great! I love eating at Shivley and Nelson, even Big Mama's Burritos on the weekends.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Our buildings are very old and the rooms feel tiny. They are building new buildings, but they are not letting the upper classmen get them.

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live in the dorms, so I am not sure about off-campus housing.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining at OU is incredible. There are SO MANY options and most of them are places you wouldn't hear of unless you pop into Athens for the weekend! Big Mama's Burritos, Bagelstreet Deli, Casa Nueva, and more all have great food at reasonable prices!

Administration: We've had our struggles this year at OU, but all in all based on rules, its been pretty good. I don't think the administration has unfair rules, and they enforce the ones they do have fairly among students. My only concern is the lack of drug investigation. my dorm room, and a few others on my floor, constantly smell like Marijuana because there are students who stand beneath the windows in an alley and smoke. We've called police and RAs on them a few times, and nothing has been done.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go out to parties here on campus. I might go and observe a little, but I'd rather spend my free time at the hockey games or watching movies with friends. I'm not old enough to drink, and I don't think I would find it much fun to be the only sober one at a party.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The majority of OU students can never envision themselves going to any other school but Ohio University. Whether it's the unique atmosphere, great classes, people they've met, or a combination of several factors, Bobcats are passionate about their school and feel confident about the choice they made. Once they graduate, it's inevitable they will return more than once to recapture the feeling of strolling along Court Street and hanging out with great friends over a beer or game of pool.

Though students may gripe over Friday afternoon classes, strict resident assistants, or how they can't seem to get any work done because they live above a bar, students are still happy to be there and know that the good times will greatly outnumber the bad. It's safe to say that OU is an excellent choice because it doesn't just offer a first-rate education, but also provides students with the necessary life skills needed to survive out in the real world. While not everyone may leave OU 100 percent satisfied with their college experience, most graduate from the University confident and ready for what lies ahead of them and also a little sad to be saying goodbye to some of the best times of their lives. What's most important about college is you make the most of wherever you choose to go. Thankfully, OU gives each individual many opportunities and amenities to enjoy this special phase of their lives.
