5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus yet but I am very excited to.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: All of the restaurants on Court St the best. You have a wide variety of flavor, cost and dinning experience.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The party scene at Ohio University lives up to what everyone says! Fest Season is the best season (Every weekend at Spring Break)

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The RAs in the dorm are good to you if you are good to them!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I only received some financial aid, everyone could always use more!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The campus food at Ohio University is good to have but there are always the same types of food everyday and I tend to become bored. It is very hard to eat healthy anywhere on campus. The healthy option are more expensive in the markets and there are hardly any healthy options in the dinning hall.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: At Ohio University you must live on campus for the first two years. My freshman year I did not have a very good pick date for housing so I ended up with the dorms the farthest from classes. On the other hand, I really enjoyed the people who were in my Mod living style housing. My sophomore year I was fortunate in getting a great pick date and I picked a dorm in the middle of campus! At Ohio University there are always students outside, making the social atmosphere very inviting! All in all, my experience with on campus housing was great but I cannot wait to live off campus in an apartment.

Off-Campus Dining: Gran Ranchero is the best, but there are plenty of options for food! It's always nice to get off campus meals every once and a while

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always a party going on here at Ohio University. If not, the bars are always crazy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I feel like it is very easy to eat unhealthy at the dinning halls, and that doesn't make you feel too great. But the dinning halls are conveniently placed so it doesn't take much effort to get there. I really enjoy being able to use my flex points at the coffee shops and the food courts in baker center. I also really like having flex because at the end of the week I can use my left over swipes to go to the market to stock up on groceries.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus, It's a great way to be close to classes and it's also a great way to meet new people. For some of the dorms here on campus I think are way too expensive for what you are provided with. The showering situations and bathrooms are not always clean and I would not walk anywhere without shoes on. It is however very convenient with classes, you can get almost anywhere on campus in 10 minutes or less.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The prices of the housing off campus is ridiculous. I feel like they forget that everyone is trying to pay for college at the same time so why make the housing price through the roof?!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have the best food options on Court St. here in Athens, literally you can't beat it.

College Freshman

Party Scene: Okay well I'm sure this isn't a surprise but OU is a party school. Personally it hasn't had an impact on my learning but i don't participate very much. It is nice to take a break once in awhile and have fun, which is easily possible at OU.

3 College Freshman

Administration: OU is very strict inside the dorms when it comes to underage drinking but when it comes to the bars uptown things are very different.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was very annoying but i got the most that i was able to get. People need to make sure they file early to get as much money as possible.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food that is on campus at dining halls, not that great..... The food on court street is to die for. Chipotle, Bagel Street, there are so many options but the problem is not being able to use meal plants, or flex points so you have to stick to the same old same old.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: While i don't live on campus because i am a commuter, i hang out in the dorms with my friends quite often. The worst part of the dorms is having to share a bathroom with so many other people. Its frustrating when you need to shower before class but theres already a line to use it. Not only that but the temperature of the rooms is never what it should be. The best part of the dorms is the social atmosphere, and it that most of them are very spacious.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus, but have been to some

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.
