What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am in love with this campus. For beginners, the university has built a ton of new dorms so there are many nice dorms to live in. The off campus apartments and houses are also nice and both options have an amazing atmosphere. Academically, Ohio State is on par and continuing to advance past any of the universities in the United States. The sports speak for themselves, especially our beloved football Buckeyes. The opportunities and benefits at Ohio State are much greater than any other college in the US.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This place has it all. It's got world class medical center, engineering lab, and liberal arts programs. It's rec center, library, and sports facilities are all incredible. The oval is a massive central place where people hang out between classes. Food and housing is OK. The people are incredible here. Columbus is an amazing place, and campus is close to a ton of cool neighborhoods, as well as the downtown area. The professors are great. It is a large state school, however, which means nothing is handed to you; you have to reach out and take it. Professors want to know you and help you, but you must take the initiative. If you do, the school will shrink some, and you will get the tlc you need, and a worldclass education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is huge--it's like a city nestled inside of a city. Most students feel intimidated, that is, until they find their niche. While the large scale of OSU tends to make me feel anonymous, it also allows for diversified classes, majors, and extracurriculars. For someone fresh from Smalltown, USA, the colorful variety was refreshing. Yet OSU was never my "home away from home;" it was my place to work, not play.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy my time on campus. I was first nervous about attending such a huge campus but I have come around to love it. Although the class size may seem overwhelming, recitation classes are a lot smaller which is very helpful. The professors are always willing to help if you are willing to reach out to them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Ohio State University main campus offers a great environment to further your education as well as have fun. There is a good mix of academics and extra-curriculars on campus, and a wide variety that offers something for everyone. Overall Ohio State is a home where students can learn and become independent.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

When I tell my friends about my school I ALWAYS start with the fact that the academics are stellar. I also brag about the school spirit because there isn't another college I know that can rally together as a community and fight for their school - whether it's sports, campus politics, academics - as well as Ohio State Students can. Not to mention it's THE Ohio State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an amazing school and I'm extremely grateful to have ended up here. As a military brat we don't really have roots or a place to call home, but the Ohio State University definitely changed that for me. I have never felt such an overwhelming sense of pride and friendship at any other institution and I welcome anyone who wants to become a Buckeye.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school has been a major disappointment for me and my family. My research said this would be a great learning atmosphere but I was mistaken. Ohio state is not interested in education but collecting money. I'm in Electrical engineering and there are no labs or hands on learning which is crippling in my field.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Like most kids, I wanted to get away from my family and go out-of-state for school. I wanted to spread my wings and fly far, far away and escape the boring landscape of Columbus, Ohio. Being raised here, I thought I saw everything Columbus had to offer. Easton Mall on Morse Road, Polaris Mall and the McDonald's by my apartment, I knew it all! I was bored and I needed some new scenery... but I'm glad I didn't. Ohio State is a place where I can live, laugh and learn. I feel like I am so more aware of myself and the world around me ever since coming here. Ohio State is like its own little town, with its own food places, clothing, diversity and so much more. If you like reading, there's great libraries. If you like parties, pretty sure you can find one easily. If you need help in that stup- I mean challenging chemistry class, you can get tutoring. You gained a few pounds over the semester and you're ready to lose it, there are gyms like RPAC there for you. If you like extracurriculars, OSU has hundreds. OSU is the place to be if you're ready to have the time of your life. Personally, I can't wait to continue to grow while going to school here. With great research opportunities, faculty, people and more I am glad to call OSU my home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a Junior at the Knowlton School of Architecture at OSU and I love it. This program is for the creative minds and is strongly based on theory which does have the shortcomings of not learning all the technical aspects of architectures but you will not get any better teachers. We are on a first name basis with students and faculty and it's fantastic because a lot of them are adjunct-faculty so they know the real world. Just watch out for Jackie or Kipnis, they are very strongly opinionated. OSU is a school that parties hard so if that's your crowd definitely go for south campus living. The food here is better than most schools and if you get sick of it Columbus has plenty of options! There is literally something for everyone here. Yes, campus parking services is a scam so make sure to read the fine print on EVERYTHING. If you are an african-american minority prepare for a small community. OSU kind of sucks on representing that aspect of diversity but they have plenty of Asian exchange students! Other than that I highly recommend this school. Apply for all scholarships because it's expensive af.
