The organizations and programs that I have taken advantage of always keep me busy, meeting new people, and learning new things. Ohio State truly offers opportunities for every student.

The kind of person that should attend this school is one with an open mind.

Embracing these, open-minded students find the most success.

The kind of person that should attend this school is someone who is open to new experiences. There are a lot of students on campus; so if a shy person from a small town might be overwhelmed by the sheer size of this school. A person who is curious would also do well at this school. Exploring the campus and the city will help a person become more interested in the school because the campus is so big.

Erica

Anyone attending this school should be someone who is willing to feel lost and uncomfortable and nervous at first, but will realize that all of that initial worry is all worth it in the end. Not one person will come to the school and feel comfortable for the first week unless they have spent much time here, because you are thrown into a campus and classes with so many new people. But once you figure out where you belong, you will never want to reach that day when you can leave.

Carly

Any kind of person should be able to attend this university. Many people might say this, but there is something at Ohio State for everybody. With over 1000 clubs, if you can't find something to get involved in you aren't looking on campus. Some may argue if someone doesn't like a big university, they shouldn't attend this university; I beg to differ. Ohio State is big because it is made up of hundreds of small communities. You can feel at home in the Oval, experience the outdoors at Mirror Lake, and experience life everywhere!
