After Ohio University
- Very Good1192
I had just finished a ADN nursing program and began applying for jobs. Despite my other qualifications that reportedly would have the job offers pouring in--Spanish-speaking and male--I haven't been successful with my recent application. I have hold two degrees--an Associates and Bachelor's in another field. But I didn't hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree, which, much to my dismay, is becoming the minimum educational requirement for application to a magnet hospital, which is all the major urban center hospitals across the country. Enter Ohio University's RN-BSN program which will allow me to earn a BSN in less than two years. I just registered for my first class, but the whole application and transcript evaluation process has been very prompt and professional. Advisers will return emails the next day! I'm looking to forward to earning my BSN from Ohio University and it appears I will have fun in the process.

Ohio University offers plenty of housing for students on and off campus. On campus housing consists of dorms for two students and a meal plan. Off campus housing is either one bedroom apartments or large houses for 3-6 roommates. I looked into housing options and found that living off campus is much easier on the wallet, especially if you don't have your parents paying for everything. Buying food from the grocery store is much cheaper than a meal plan as well. If you don't want to live close to the weekend parties or if you have a significant other who would be waiting for you at home, there are other housing options not affiliated with the university that are affordable as well! They offer single bedroom apartments and even 2-3 bedroom houses at a reasonable cost!

After going to Freshmen Orientation I am more than happy with my decision to attend Ohio University. The most amazing and unique thing about OU is that their alumni continuously boast about how amazing Ohio University is. Current students rave about how great OU is as well. From seeing with my own eyes Ohio University's Teachers, Safety, Students, Campus, Curriculum, Culinary options, Organisations and programs, and Athletics are top notch! I am excited because OU also has a Christian sorority which most other public university's don't offer and OU also offers a way for students in the University College to make their own major. I believe that Ohio University is the Best, most diverse, and most dedicated University in the World. I am so proud and will forever be proud to call myself a Bobcat!
