4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is great except for the fact that we don't get much help from the school other than with living on south campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Could use student discounts, but is fine otherwise

4 College Junior

Administration: needs to be more strict on the drug usage (usually strict, but cases of certain students getting away with smoking weed in the dormitories and nobody saying anything about it), and needs to be stricter on the noise violations in the dormitories during certain times of day, but is fine otherwise

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Could use slight improving, but as good as it could be under circumstances

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The school offers plenty of financial aid for those in need, just hard to get enough of it covered if no help from parents for the people that are unable to work. Luckily I was able to work, but there are students who are unable to work due to outside forces.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The bathrooms could be taken care of a little more often (only done Monday-Friday, I feel it should also need tending to on the weekends as well), but other than that, I feel it was fantastic

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different options from fast food to sit down restaurants. There is a variety of pricing some places are open all night so getting food is never a problem.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school does not really help much with students finding off campus housing. However students can usually find a place pretty easily that is very affordable and close to the school.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Each adviser tells the students under their major what is excepted of them and students also receive a form to help them to keep on track with their courses and such.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There are many adjunct teachers in my major and they are fantastic teachers. They have been in the work place so they are very well informed and able to teach very effectively. The curriculum is also very good.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity when it comes to ethnicity. People are very accepting of one another and are friends no matter what their race. There is also a variety in religious backgrounds.

Campus Housing: The dorm rooms are very spacious and they are also very close to where classes are so it is very simple to get from your dorm to your class. They also provide much of what is needed such as a bed, desk, and dresser.

Athletics: The sports teams very a lot. Some sports get a descent amount of fans and support such as basketball and volleyball. Most other sports however have a very small fan base. The facilities are not well updated and need improvement. Most of the staff is working hard towards improving the schools athletics however some coaches are complained about on a regular basis. The teams performance is about average.

5 College Junior

Academics: All of my classes have been great at OVU. They are challenging but not too much to handle. Each class is different in the sense that homework load is different and each curriculum is different. You never know what to expect from different classes.

Academics: OVU has some of the best professors I've ever had. They are always personable and always willing to help students!

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: We have the best campus ever! I have attended two other colleges and OVU is the best! It's a small campus, making it easy to get around. The OVU campus has great buildings with many lounges, computer labs, and classrooms.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I do not live on campus so I don't get to observe much of the nightlife.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I do not eat on campus as I am a commuter but I have heard that the café is great and has many options.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek Life but I do know many students in the four social clubs. Everyone acts the same and there is no animosity towards Non-Greeks.
