What is your overall opinion of this school?

I genuinely love it here. There is literally something for everyone. We're smack dab in the middle of the city (Columbus), and the local bus is free for full time student so basically you can go anywhere in Columbus fro free! We also have an 11 story library, and 12 libraries across campus. I've started going rock climbing for free at the gym, and I'm in a health club and a club walking dogs at the local dog shelter. The campus is huge, and so has many options. I know a lot of people are worried that they'll be "just a number" at such a big school but it can actually be a really intimate setting. Getting to know your professors is easy when you go to office hours, and they're all pretty helpful. And you can literally build your own community to support and encourage you, because there's something for everyone! I guarantee if you go out and find people with like interests or even totally different ideals, you'll make lifelong friends and build your own little intimate community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Ohio State University is an amazing school. There is always something to do from sports to clubs to other random activities. Everyone is involved in a club or group of some sort. There's also advertising all over the place for events and activities happening. The campus is beautiful. Places to study and work are all over campus and it's so big that there's always a new place or niche to discover. Jobs and restaurants and cafes are available across campus for every need. OSU also offers a huge variety of student resources including the health center, writing center to get help on assignments and tutoring at multiple locations. The professors are excellent. You can tell that they really enjoy their jobs and want the best for the their students. All of the professors and teacher's assistants have office hours, and often times try to make other arrangements to meet with students if schedule conflicts occur. Overall, Ohio State works to provide the best opportunities to students and that effort is shown every day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Personally, i love Ohio State. If i am being unbiased, the school isn't ranked insanely highly, but it is still a great institution. It has a huge alumni base, a huge sports fan base, and enough students and outlets to enjoy any aspect of life. I love it here, but it could be too big for some people. I'd say, if you're thinking about coming here, visit!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Ohio State University is a fascinating place to be. From something to do all the time, to someone to study with everywhere, the campus offers everything I'm looking for! The dorms have places to do anything you could want, and there is a library at nearly every corner. I love the culture and the clubs, as there is something for everyone, The spirit is definitely second to none.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The reason I transferred to Ohio State was its vast, diverse, interconnected campus and alumni; namely, the opportunity to network with better firms and more driven students to challenge me in order for me to grow. The myriad variety of clubs represent the diverse campus, and a way to make connections in a sea of students. Particularly, the business clubs that connect students to prestigious firms are highly competitive and nearly all of them require an interview or two and an application process to join. Moreover, there exist many programs, services and other opportunities within the Fisher College of Business that groom students for a successful career. This can perhaps be extended to all of the colleges on campus, since one of our main values is excellence. I came here as a driven, ambitious, confident student, and was met with many more of the same variety – if you’re looking for others to push you, it’s the place for you. To explore the sea more so, delving in – beyond Fisher – you find the Oval, connecting all sides of campus that evokes a sense of unity – to the famous Ohio Stadium, fans roaring with a red glow emanating to outsiders come game day – and not to forget, the beautiful Thompson library, that is central on the circumference of the Oval and perhaps where all of the students come together. Here you enter into what is perhaps my favorite part of campus, around every turn you find students frivolously studying, entering you see a towering wall of books, up the staircase you may enter a gorgeous, massive reading room that makes one feel in awe at the vastness. The last few weeks to start my collegiate career at The Ohio State University have been filled with unforgettable moments, much adjustment, other driven students, and too much to do with the time allotted in a day – I’m inspired, motivated, and proud to be a Buckeye, I feel alive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio State University Main Campus isn't all its cracked up to be. With extremely limited parking, people not following traffic laws, and threats alike, main campus can be a difficult place to live. Class sizes are often large, anywhere from 30-160 students per lecture. Individual attention is in high demand as it is a scarce resource. However, the overall vibe on football Saturday's is one for the memory books. The tingle down your spine in the buckeye nation makes you feel like part of a large family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Upon picking such a large school, I was concerned I would be lost among the crowd. In reality, it is quite the opposite. This huge school is made to feel smaller and welcoming due to the constant involvement of student activities and helpful and concerned staff. The campus is beautiful and there is always something to do. Overall an amazing experience and an amazing school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred here my sophomore year and I love it. The size of the campus overwhelmed me at first, but it gets smaller as you become more involved. Although there's is so many people you will be able to find people who are like you. You can meet diverse groups of people here, and I love it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Ohio State University is that it is so much more than what meets the eye. When people think of Ohio State they think of a big name school with a good football team, but in fact it has so much more than that to offer. Don't get me wrong, tailgating for the football games is great and the feeling that you get when you walk into the student section of the Horseshoe for the first time is unforgettable, but Ohio State is more than just football. There is such a wide range of classes offered that you will always be able to find something that interests you, and the professors are all excited about their jobs and excited to be teaching you. Also, outside of academics, there are hundreds of student organizations, clubs, and sports for you to join that will broaden your experience at Ohio State to make it even better. The best part of going to Ohio State is that everyone is so happy to be there and there is such a community atmosphere to the school because everyone is proud to be a buckeye.
