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Campus Housing: A lot of the new dorms are very nice, but there are too many outdated dorms.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

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Alcohol, Weed and study drugs are easy to get

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Its a good cultural and educational match for me. There could be a wider variety of accommodations available for students with learning disabilities and better financial aid for out of state students. Student Health Services sucks. Prof are good and you will graduate with an above average education in your major.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Outside of dorms are beautiful. Well disbursed all over campus. Good variety of room types but they still look like your average dorm inside. There are several dining hall locations, some even in dorms, so you don't have to go far for meals.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Wide variety of club and intra-mural sports as well as pick up games available at Ping Center

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Students are made aware of problems when they exist and local law enforcement is very involved

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Faculty cars for the most part, students are serious but still have fun, lots of help available

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I think certain sports have big student involvement

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: it's been a good experience so far everyone has been extremely nice and helpful

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not really care for greek life so this does not interest me either.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not very interested in athletics, so this aspect of my school does not intrigue me much.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my time at Ohio University so far.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors all care about what they teach and do a great job teaching. The courses offered are abundant. There is definitely something for everyone.

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.
