What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've had a very good experience at Ohio State. I felt as though the above questions about intellectual conversation, drug/party life, greek life, and extracurricular activities were a little irrelevant because this school is so large that anyone's experience at Ohio State can be whatever they make of it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For my overall opinion, the Ohio State University-Main Campus is very interesting. They have various resources for academics, sports, clubs and activities. The campus seems pretty busy everyday, there's always somethings to do, so you can never say the experience is boring. The students are quiet, tall, heavily influenced and compassionate about what they learn from their teachers or throughout their experience. The staff is nice and kind, constant of what of they help students, visitors, and others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Despite being the third largest university in the nation, finding where you belong is surprisingly easy at the Ohio State University. Being so big, the university has everything you could imagine, both in terms of academics and extracurriculars. There's something for everyone here, and Ohio State does everything they can to help you find what you like. When I first came to Ohio State, I was worried I would be lost in the mass of students, unable to get individualized help. However, I have found the opposite to be true. Most of my classes have been relatively small, some of them only twenty or so people, so it was easy to get to know the professor and the other students. Some of my more general classes have been large lectures, but even then, the professors have regular office hours and are available to schedule individual appointments if you email them. If talking to the professor wasn't an option, many large general classes had specific rooms staffed by teaching assistants that you could go to without an appointment and get free tutoring. I used this service for both my calculus and chemistry classes, and it saved my grade. If you prefer to study with your peers, Ohio State does a great job of building academic communities so that you can connect with students in your major or with similar interests. There's the Honors College, many Scholars programs, and other organizations that can live together and that take many of the same classes to facilitate a sense of community. I joined the Honors College and lived in a dorm with other Honors students, and it was a great way to meet people with similar interests. We studied together often and shared opportunities and advice. I met some of my best friends through the Honors College. I met my other friends through extracurricular activities. Ohio State has an activities fair twice a year so students have a chance to see all of the opportunities available to them. The activities fair is a fun, festive experience, but it is also an easy way to see what is available to you. It can help you find your interests and then get in contact with the clubs you want to join. There's everything you can imagine, from student government to religious clubs to Reptile Club. Whatever your interests, there is a club for it at Ohio State; and if there's not, it's easy to start your own club. Students can also join Greek life and play recreational sports with their friends. I played coed soccer with my friends, and it was the most fun I've had in college so far. Another great experience I've had here is with undergraduate research. When most people think of Ohio State, they think of football, but Ohio State is also a research university and invests in many different kinds of research. They make this research very accessible to undergraduates, offering classes and seminars on how to get involved in research. They even have a department for it, the Undergraduate Research Office, and they can help you find a position in a lab on campus. This is a great way to prepare for graduate school and a great way to gain experience in your field before you even graduate. I was able to start research my freshman year, simply by emailing a professor. I learned that I did not like the subject I was researching and switched labs after my freshman year to something I am more interested in. Without this opportunity, I wouldn't have known as much about my field or my interests within my major. I now have a much better idea of what I want to do after college because of this experience, and I feel I have found my niche within my major. Though Ohio State has many little communities within it, at the end of the day we are all Buckeyes. We all link arms and sing Carmen Ohio at the end of every football game, and no one misses the game against the State Up North. Though there are many types of people at Ohio State, we all share a love for this school and pride in being Buckeyes. Ohio State has great academics, research, and student life, but what really makes being a Buckeye so special is that I know that for the rest of my life, I will always have the Buckeye community behind me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I may be a bit biased, but I'm convinced that The Ohio State University is the best school ever. Every facility is modern, well-maintained, and full of friendly and helpful staff. There is a very strong academic culture that's always on display at our exceptional libraries, but there are also plenty of fun ways to relax and unwind on and off campus. There's a very strong sense of community here at The Ohio State University that shows from the football games to our many clubs and groups available to join on campus. It's always a good day when you're a Buckeye!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is huge both physically and in terms of student population. Class sizes are huge and mental services are almost completely nonexistent. If you are a very stable and independent student, you will have a great chance of being successful. It is very easy to get lost in the mix here and professors are not easy to get in contact with for larger majors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As soon as I got out of the car to tour Ohio State as a high school junior, I realized that it felt like home. Though the campus is large in size and population, it seems like I always run into people I know and feel comfortable around. There are plenty of activities and groups to get involved in that make the campus smaller, and if you wish to totally reinvent yourself once you’re in school, the anonymity that comes with a big school allows for that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that it is a really amazing school. Academics and social life is fairly balanced here, especially with the right group of people. The housing on campus for freshman is not the best, but it is definitely something that is manageable. Although it is a big school it can easily be made small and isn't too hard to figure your way around after three days or so. GO BUCKS!

Very interesting and diverse place to grow and learn with many opportunities. It is a fantastic place to find new passions, discover new people, and learn more about yourself. The academics are intellectually stimulating and the professors are truly there to help all of their students.
