Ohio State is a large university that offers something for all students. Stellar academic programs, a wide variety of degree options, excellent support systems, a multitude of student clubs and Greek life, endless social opportunities and one of the top NCAA athletic programs in the country merely scratches the surface of what OSU offers. Within degree programs the university does an excellent job of creating a smaller atmosphere for the student - this helps tremendously to balance the sheer size of the campus.

Ohio State has to be best known for its sports and the almost cult-like following by its students, alumni, and just regular fans. But not only does the school excel in sports, its reputation on an academic level is quite impressive. This is thanks in part to upscale research labs, top-notch teaching staff, and seemingly limitless resources for students.The main campus is famous for being one of the largest in the nation, but it seems to shrink in size the longer you're there. It's beautiful, and thousands of students have come to call it home.

FOOTBALL!!! and Sports! A big emphasis on school spirit revolving around the Buckeyes and the rivalry between OSU and U of [email protected] A large student enrollment provides for a spansive networking base. The school is kind of a party school. Drinking is a big part of this school's culture. So large, in fact, that the president of the university is pursuing interest in lowering the drinking age to 18. However, if you don't drink, the school has a wealth of other extra-cirricular opportunities from intramural sports to clubs and organizations.

Dakota State University is best known for there large technology programs. The moto here at DSU is "Technically We're Better" because we are the most advaced school in technology here in South Dakota. Every student that attended DSU is required to have a laptop or tablet. The teachers at DSU do a lot of online homework and quizes. There are a few teachers that do not use anything other than the technology provided. Because so much is done on the computer, you could also say DSU is very green and does not use much paper. Technically We're Better.
