4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm still living on campus, so I'm not quite sure, but many of the apartments I have visited seem very nice. I am not extremely aware of all of the details yet though.

Off-Campus Dining: I personally am very pleased with how many food options are on and off campus. Of course I am a college student who is working my way in more and more debt, so money matters, but costs usually aren't too bad. I think delivery is a wonderful invention.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I don't mind anything being strict only because I'm not a big partier or rule breaker to be honest. I wish it didn't smell like weed all over South though.... that's unfortunate.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I honestly am so blessed for all the help I received. Obviously, I will always be willing to accept more because I cannot really afford many loans, but I am so grateful for what I was given.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I've never been a huge partier or drinker, but if you are one then Ohio University is really the place to be. I probably only go out to party like once a month, but it's always very entertaining here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I pay for the standard plan because it is a lot cheaper. I get two meals a day, but if I don't eat in the dining hall each time I lose that $6.25 for each meal. I don't think that is very fair at all. I understand not being able to eat at West 82 and Latitude 40, but I think markets should be open to anyone with meals left.

Campus Housing: I would rate campus housing as great because I enjoy the staff and janitors and how clean everything is. I also like the arrangement of the rooms/halls in my mod. I dislike how I cannot adjust the temperature (freezing in winter and sweating in summer), and I also so not enjoy the random wall in the middle of my room that separates each side. It is very inconvenient when trying to move things around.

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of good choices

Scholarships: I do not have a car. The only time dealing with it is when my mom comes down.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Truly enjoy the flex plan

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus and the chance to meet people from everywhere.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Most people do not get caught, but if you do get caught its not bad. If you get in trouble with the police though then the school get strict.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive much off, but I got a scholarship that I did not apply for.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you don't have a fake ID then you really won't have much to do. The undercovers patrol the bars a lot and its easy to get caught. The house parties end after opening weekend

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of options, but they never really change up the menus. You will never find anything healthy or natural in the dining halls. All the fruit is bruised and the salad bar could be better. The flex points are the best, if you are getting a meal plan definitely get flex 14 not 20.

Campus Housing: The dorms are old and very traditional, but they are building four new suite style dorms. Many of the dorms are being renovated and as long as you do not end up in Dirty South, you are good. The best areas to live are the Front Four on South green or anywhere on East.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm only a freshman and I already get emails every time an off campus facility is available. They're pretty nice.

Off-Campus Dining: You can order and get delivered almost anything you can think of from wings to cookies to ice cream to calzones until 3 a.m. It's amazing and I have no complaints!

Administration: As long as we're not totally obvious about things, we won't get caught. In other words, be smart about it. RAs don't care very much.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I don't have a car, but it's no problem for me to walk anywhere.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: We are a party school, of course. There's always a party to go to Thursday through Saturday night. On the weekdays, the bars are also a lot of fun. However, there is a fair-sized population of those who don't want to party all the time. Don't think that just because you're not a party person that you wouldn't fit in here!

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's very hard not to find something you don't like. The food is very diverse and it's pretty good. Some of the best college food you'll find.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are pretty standard. New dorms are currently under construction, so applying early will help you if you want the best pick!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Athens has a good mix of off-campus eating options. It's not as wide as Columbus or Dayton, but for our size of a town it's pretty good. There is a good mix on Court St, which runs through campus, and the rest is pretty much all located on East State St, a little bit down the road, with a few exceptions on Richland Ave (a little bit farther). Athens is very green- lots of vegetarian options (even on campus), gluten and dairy free options, and we have a good sized farmers market where you can buy organic. For meat lovers, we have meat, too. I'm a big pizza person, and I think last year I counted 15 different pizza places within 5 minutes of the center of Athens. There's dozens more if you go a little farther. Mmmm....pizza....

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.
