3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't had to find off-campus housing yet but every junior and senior lives off-campus so it can't be that hard.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's good to try the local places in town. The pizza places are awesome and there are a few little places that make good food. The bars have really good food during the day too. There are chain places too like Subway and Wendy's and McDonald's but they don't dominate.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Some RA's will be really strict and others won't, it just depends. Undercover cops are everywhere looking for underage drinkers but if you're smart you can avoid any trouble. Bouncers at the bars are usually pretty lenient with letting kids with fakes get in. You just have to be respectful and smart during parties to avoid getting into trouble. The people who get in trouble usually deserve it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Your first year it's really simple to get aid, although I didn't get as much as I wanted. Applying for aid the next few years is a little more complicated and time consuming.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a huge partier, I go out every once in a while with my friends so I don't know that much. Most students go out every weekend though. You can always find somewhere to go. Fest season is pretty fun.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The best thing about campus food is it's almost always available and ready when you are. Not really much else to say about it. Generally healthier options than seen on most campuses.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on which dorm you're in, you could have a very spacious room. Some buildings are brand new but even the older ones aren't bad. Almost every room has air conditioning. I was surprised how comfortable the beds are, I like them better than the one I have at home! The closet space is excellent and I have plenty of room for my clothes. The housing process is a really easy online application. Overall I consider my dorm a home away from home. I'm very comfortable living on campus.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Awful, nearly all landlords focus on making money off students.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Very good places to eat, my friends love to visit just for the food.

3 College Junior

Administration: Used to be really lenient but now they try to take out all the fun.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They are very generous with scholarships.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: Some of the nicest kids around and everyone loves to have a good time.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I actually really enjoy the dinning hall food.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Halls are fairly nice and many are brand new.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It depends on where you choose to live. Some are older and not as nice but there are nicer and newer ones but that also comes with a higher cost.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have some really awesome and unique uptown restaurants and THE best chicken and waffles of anywhere.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are not out there looking to catch you and fine you but if you violate something and they find out, they will not hesitate to fine you.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Honestly I was disappointed with the financial aid I got from OU. Many other schools offered more and I believe with the grades I got I should have received more. They say they don't go by just ACT but they definitely fall heavily on that which is not fair if you worked so hard to get a 4.0 GPA but they base your scholarship on the ACT score.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I think Ohio University can definitely be a big party scene if you want it to be. But I have found that it is not hard to stay away from that scene as well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is always new options and a good variety as well. But a lot of the times it seems as though the good fruit runs out.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Ohio University is a beautiful campus and they are always building or creating new places/buildings to improve our campus. But another downfall to that is it seems as though there is always construction. It is a very social and open campus with something going on all the time!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am only a freshman so I really haven't had to research any off campus housing yet.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love the off campus food but don't get to purchase it often because I am broke.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think that the parking services people are very strict but everything else is pretty fair.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I think the financial aid process was pretty easy. Everything was taken care of on time. I just think that the interest rates are outrageous.

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.
