5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Amazing campus amazing people and really awesome teachers I love it there

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love all of my classes and professors and am satisfied with my experience so far.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am very eager to graduate from Scripps, as it is one of the best journalism schools in the entire country.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, yet that doesn't speak for progressive actions, only retroactive punishments.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing on campus is pretty decent, but being stuck in the "dirty south" proves that some parts of the campus are not as well kept.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't mind greek life either way, but it does allow certain students to enter a community that they may not have ever been a part of otherwise.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are really not a huge part of campus life but having school spirit is very important.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ohio University makes it very possible to make friends and find a positive learning experience that also allows networking.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, I have had a great first year on this campus. Not only am I a part of a rigorous and unique program, but I have met amazing people through classes and extracurricular activities who have made this year a wonderful experience.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Honors Tutorial College provides great connection with faculty and alumni that make finding opportunities during undergrad and after graduation easier. Professors provide their support and guidance throughout every process undertaken at the university, and alumni provide this support after you leave the campus for future endeavors. The Honors Tutorial College stays with you for life.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: My tumultuous first year on the campus has led me to conclude that sexual assault is an issue that needs to be taken more seriously on this campus, as well as every campus in the country. Ohio University was in an odd place concerning sexual assault due to the closing of the Ohio University Survivor Advocacy Program, which provided confidential services to victims of sexual assault. The only confidential service offered on campus was the Counseling and Psychological Services, and it was already overbooked throughout the year. Not only should more preventative steps be taken on this campus concerning sexual assault, but more services should be offered to those who are survivors of sexual assault.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Overall, my experience living in a dorm was good, mostly due to the people living there. I loved my dorm's community, and I met most of my friends there. Although the room was small, I was placed with a cooperative roommate, and we utilized our space well. We did have a mold problem right before winter break, but East Green residence life was prompt in fixing the problem. Picking a dorm both years would have been easier if the instructions for choosing a dorm were communicated better to students.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek life on campus, but I have a few friends who are. It can be pretty difficult to get in, specifically if it is an academic fraternity. I know many people who enjoy the support and connections they get from joining a fraternity or sorority. However, I find that their parties can get extremely rowdy and potentially dangerous, so I try to avoid them.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not into sports at this university, but I do enjoy Ping, which is the fitness center for all students on campus. They have great options for a variety of workouts, whether they be individual or group activities. All facilities and classes offered are free-of-charge to students, which is wonderful.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ohio University is a wonderful fit for me because of the Honors Tutorial College. Through this school at Ohio University I have found a high-quality education, boundless resources, and amazing support from faculty, students, and alumni. The curriculum of this program is nearly a perfect fit for my learning style, and I am unbelievably lucky to have found a program like this at a university close to home.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Thus far, I have loved every single class I've taken. The material, though vigorous, is very interesting. I never have any trouble diving into the work that I have. The professors are also all very supportive and eager to help anyone that has trouble.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think many of the programs offered will get most people jobs. But, if you chose a major that has a small job outlook don't complain when you cant find a job.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at all times at OU

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A lot of the new dorms are very nice, but there are too many outdated dorms. Also the sophomore lottery system is very unfair. I had a second day pick, but barely had any choices left when I went to choose.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't care much for Greek life. It's not popular at OU.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I wish we were more of a sports school, but most of the time people only go to the games for free food.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is the best decision I have ever made. I don't regret coming to OU at all.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Most party only on weekends and always several avl. Fests are 24 hr parties. Famous for Halloween

4 College Senior

Party Scene: If you wanted to you could find some kind of party any night or someone to hang out with at a bar. Most students limit partying to weekends. The fests are weekend long 24 hr parties

3 College Senior

Diversity: Many ethnicities and religions are visible on campus

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.
