I have found the Ohio State Newark Campus to be a nice start for my college education. I am currently taking College Credit Plus classes and have enjoyed my experience. So far my teachers have been into what they are teaching and most of the students have been respectful of both the teachers and others.

Myana

It's a great school to start out at! The size of the campus is so convenient, campus is really nice during the warmer seasons, and people are friendly but its hard to make friends unless you already know them. Most of the professors are pretty cool, its just like any other university just smaller. You will get the same education as OSU main campus just in a smaller setting. OSU Newark for me was the best decision with saving as much money as possible! Sometimes it can get a bit boring, but if you are looking for somewhere to focus on learning, and not partying, activities, organizations than this school is right for you.

Gabriella

I like the campus as a whole. But having grown up in Newark my whole life, it gets a bit boring and monotonous. Most people transfer to main campus by their junior year which is definitely what I am doing as Newark doesn't offer my major. Wish there was more going on. it's hard to make friends and meet new people because most of us will be out of there come a year or two.

Leticia

When talking about education the Newark campus overall is a good place to go to school. The professors are well educated, pretty good teachers and accessible. Advisors are accessible but you have to schedule weeks in advance sometimes to see an advisor which sucks in cases of emergencies. The dorms are nice but most students prefer getting apartments because it's cheaper. There's not much to do in Newark but student life tries to come up with weekly activities on campus and some students attend. Newark is not a party school so many of us go to Columbus on weekends to party, back home or other universities. If I were you, I would come to Newark for my first year or two but then transfer to the Columbus campus which is what most students here do.
