4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks are equal on the social ladder to non-greeks

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Most the people you see are students and the shopping is limited, but high quality. You can drive to a less than 20 minute drive to the closest mall. Within 10 miles their is fun barn, hocking hills, old man's cave, and so many other fun things to do. The whole area has such an organic feel/look about it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Walking around campus looks like you are in a college movie, there is always something to do outside or with clubs. The weekends make the hard weekdays so much more better, especially when its the weekend of HallOUween or fest season (spring). Every person near campus is willing to help you. Uptown food is the best!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are what most freshman would expect for most classes (less than or equal to 100), other than English or math classes. Most professors are very reasonable with grading and how they teach. A large variety of classes, but you have to get a good scheduling date to get into the best ones with the best professors.

Overall Experience: If you set up a meeting or email your academic advisor you can find all the information you need about things like internships.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Almost every student is happy to be a bobcat and is very friendly to everyone, whether you are an OU student or not. A variety of fashion and interest for every possible personality type. Everyone gets along pretty well.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: In order to secure safety there is a bus running until 2 am to take everyday to take students from anywhere to their dorms, good resource, but should run later. Also when any type of assault is reported and email is sent to all students about the assaulter, where/when it took place and how to be as safe as possible.

Off-Campus Housing: I still have to

Live on campus

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Lots going on all the time

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's ok, but more reasonable options would be nice

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are pretty fair over all

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Wish more funds were available for kids for single parent families

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are good, they plan a lot of activities. Dining halls rock.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: As first and second year students, we are not allowed to live off campus. Therefore, I have not had the chance to experience off-campus housing selection at my school.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: During my freshman college experiences, I have attended several theme-based parties that occurred on side streets such as Mill Street. I found them very fun and provided the opportunity to meet many people who also attend the university.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many restaurants uptown and most of them are open late for those who like to order/eat late at night. The restaurants are all very diverse as well and provide very low prices for the college students.

5 College Freshman

Administration: When it comes to drugs, alcohol, and public safety, OUPD provides all of the protection that we need. In fact, on the back of our student ID's we have the phone number for the OUPD in case of an emergency, along with emergency towers spread all throughout campus.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was provided the exact amount that I needed for the upcoming school year when I applied, and I greatly appreciate it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are four (almost four) dining halls on our campus. These dining halls provide a diverse amount of food. It averages from chines, to cookout/summer food, to seafood, basically anything that you want. Soup, salad, and veggies are always provided, which is good because that way there is always a healthy food choice. I enjoy my campus's dining hall food very much.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I like our campus greek life. I think they can be positive and negative. They do tend to be cliquey and act as if they are better than non-greeks but they still do make the campus more social.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our school spirit is awesome! we support all the sports teams equally and show off our green and white at the events. Ping is a great facility to work out whether athlete or not, and no one judges those who aren't athletic

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is amazing. We have convenient locations uptown campus, varying from wendys and chipotle to court street diner and hibachis. Different types of food all over at a great price

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: We know how to have fun! Mill street and Palmer place are always jumping with parties, and we know how to have fun and do it safely. After the parties everyone hits up the bars or hookah for a chill end to the night.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration can be very strict but they also know when to let us live a little and have our fun. If we are doing something that isn't safe they are against it, besides that they are open to all ideas.

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.
