4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is so friendly and all around wonderful!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Absolutely the best decision of my life was attending OU. Ohio University has such a large sense of community and theres an incredible atmosphere that doesn't compare to any other school I've been to. There's something for everyone and I've noticed that people are incredibly accepting of individual differences. It's the perfect place to grow as a person and find yourself while getting an education and pursuing your dreams.

Overall Experience: Ohio University can be the most welcoming and crazy place to live and attend school. People care about one another and students love it here. That being said, our Administration is awful to students and treats us like idiotic money makers instead of people.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Applying to Ohio University was pretty easy and straightforward, despite not being on the common app. Because I applied with early admission, I found out pretty quickly that I was accepted.

Overall Experience: I don't think there is words to describe all the great things about my school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ohio University in Athens is not only surrounded by a beautiful landscape which provides plenty of outdoor activities for students to participate in but it is also fairly unique in that the city of Athens was built around the campus which allows for it to be very accessible and convenient for students. Having attended Ohio University for one year, I would not attend any other school if given the choice.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience at Ohio University has been invaluable to say the least. Spring semester of my sophomore year I traveled to Cambodia, Malaysia and Thailand to do consulting work for the Global Leadership Center. The GLC is an undergraduate certificate program that is unlike any other in the country. In addition to GLC, I am also very involved on campus with different organizations such as Relay For Life.

I truly can not envision myself at any other campus or school. The people of Athens, Ohio and the students, are wonderful people who make the stresses of day to day life bearable. The faculty and staff go above and beyond to ensure that you're on the right path to success. If I would've attended another university, I would not have these same opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ohio University is a great school. People are very nice and the teachers are very helpful when you make an effort and actually go to them. The Campus is beautiful and there is always things to do. They have so many jobs to offer you, so many activities and sports to be apart of as well.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Ohio University is on a beautiful campus in Athens, Ohio that is full of spirit and rich in history. Distinguished faculty challenge students striving for academic success.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the professors and class sizes fit perfectly to my needs. I loved being apart of greek life, my sorority made my first year experience amazing. I love my major and the first year of classes made me love it even more. I found myself wanting to be involved and attentive to classes. I felt like Ohio University was a big puzzle and I was a piece that fit directly within it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: i would choose my school again because of many reasons. When you walk on to the campus you are instantly hit with a feeling of home and comfort. makes you feel safe. The professors are great at helping you and finding time to meet with you when necessary. The staff are great ! the divisors in all departments do their best to help and make sure we have the information we need. I have no second thoughts about coming back to Ohio University

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is the best place to be. When I arrived on campus I knew immediately that I was home and it is like coming into a huge family and being instantly accepted. The atmosphere and the classes are just overall amazing and I would pick Ohio University over any other school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When I went to my college for the first time, it was very confusing to say the least. First time on my own and I was lost, and turned around. Ohio University is a smaller campus, however when you are new there, and don't know the layout very well, it can be very daunting. So there I was walking up the biggest hill in the town of Athens and I thought I was going in the right direction, and I find myself on Main street off campus. Fortunate for me I ran into people I met on my student orientation and was given an exclusive "tour guide" to the building I was supposed to be at. Overall it lead to me making good friends, and a better get to know layout of the campus much better, without the help of a map.

Overall Experience: This is the best school for me

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year in college was better than I ever imagined it could be. I met some of my closest friends, my professors and classes were great, I love my classes, and the campus feels like home. I don't think there's any school I'd rather be at.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus at Ohio University is gorgeous. Ohio University also had the best Broadcast Journalism program out of the three schools I chose to visit. Ohio University showed me their live news broadcast and all the pieces that go into making that show a success which is what really sealed the deal for me. The Scripps director Bob Stewart also was very helpful and hands on which I really like also.

Overall Experience: There is absolutely nothing wrong with Ohio University, I myself just wish I would have chosen a different school. Ohio University is not the right place for me, but I do not like or dislike it, I'm just kind of there I feel like.

Party Scene: It's literally the best. There is no school with a better party scene than use. Greek and non-greek organizations alike throw ragers from tuesday to saturday. It is excepted that every house will throw at least a few house parties throughout the year.

Off-Campus Dining: Basic variety of food options. Not too many places because of small town size.

Administration: It seems to be an average lenience. They care if you break policy, but they aren't detectives.

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.
