3 College Sophomore

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Local Area: OVU is close to Grand Central Ave, which has tons of shops, restaurants, and other things to do. There is a huge mall for shopping and a movie theatre. There are plenty of things to do in Parkersburg.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: They don't have much of a variety in classes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Some students are nice others not so much. Its a small campus so everyone knows everybody. A lotof people don't really talk to me.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: I transferred from another school and I don't feel the psychology program is as advanced as that one. There isn't many options for psych majors they are more focused on education majors.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Its a great school, small and the teachers are involved with their students. There is no sense of freedom. We are told when to be at places. Forced to go to chapel services. I feel that students should be able to decide more on how they want to spend their time in college.

3 College Freshman

Majors: We have a diverse range especially in Bible, education, management, and business. A major in engineering and such would be nice.

3 College Freshman

Weather: I'm not one for the cold but the snow looks beautiful on campus and the nice days are great days to go around to the local parks. 63 degrees is the best.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Even though there is curfew it really helps give time to study instead of unnecessarily staying out late.
