What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Ohio University. The fine arts department is consistently welcoming and is always making sure to respect sexuality, gender and pronouns. The president does care about his students, but he often does not listen to them unless it is something he wants to hear. We as students want an administration that is small and pays attention to the issues on campus, but we have a huge administration that does not listen to the students. The faculty, on the other hand, is wonderful, and always provides for the needs of their students and classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the programs I am enrolled in and the sense of community the students can develop with staff, faculty, and other students. The community offers a variety of different programs to help other students get comfortable in different environments and truly find out who they are through interactions beyond belief.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Ohio University. I have always been a huge fan of outdoors activities and this campus is surrounded by everything nature lovers could imagine. The professors are amazing and always respond to my emails within hours. I feel like the professors know their stuff and try hard to make sure their students do not fail. The food is pretty good. I never get bored, as there are many different options even for the most basic meal plan. The residence halls are very nice. I love how even the freshman dorms have sinks if you so choose. The people are very friendly and you can always find something to do when you have free time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although there are things I believe could be better like dorm life or dining halls, I love this school and feel like it is the perfect place for me. It has a very small town feel even though there are tons of new people to meet every day. The professors really care and have worked in the field they're teaching which is SUPER beneficial.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The reason I decided to go to Ohio University was because of how beautiful it is. The design of the buildings reflects the 1804 founding date making Athens so different from everywhere else which insists on modernization. Though the buildings look old all of the facilities are constantly being renovated and updated. The campus is small enough to walk everywhere but big enough were you see a new face every day. It’s easy to see a new face every day given an undergraduate size of 22,000 which is big but not compared to neighboring Ohio colleges. The downtown area is also small but there are all kinds of amenities you would need from pharmacies to restaurants, banks and churches. Off campus housing is also close to campus and the houses are gorgeous and unique. There are many on campus housing options also. Most have been renovated and have air-conditioning, but you may be unlucky and live in Dirty South where some rooms lack heating and cooling. At least the rooms are extra-large there. The food is also surprisingly good. With three dining halls all serving something different there are plenty of choices. However, the food does get tiresome after a while. When that happens, there are Ohio University owned restaurants and markets where you can use "flex points" to purchase food. There are many extracurriculars. Anything you could imagine there is a club or a team for it. However, some are highly selective and may be hard to join. Concerning Academics certain programs are better than others. The Math Department is a mess and the Chemistry department isn't much different but other than that the other Departments are very good. Overall, I think Ohio University is a great college. There is no place I would rather attend university. I love everything about Athens.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I got accepted into Ohio University I was very excited but nervous as well. I was scared about what the college experience was gonna be like. I had heard that Ohio University is only for students who like to party a lot. But I came to realize that the majority of us who attend actually don't participate in those things as in the past years. Obviously there is drinking going on but not like it used to. That's what I was afraid of. Getting peer pressured to doing stuff I didn't want to do. Once I got to campus and had my first couple weeks of class I truly felt like home. Everything was at walking distance, I enjoyed my classes, teachers were great and the food was amazing. There was food for any type of person there. Overall my life at OU has been amazing and has been an experience I will never forget.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel like the school would be way better if there places to party at for 18-20 year olds, on campus and off campus. The school's food is decent, it could be better and could use a seasoning rack for all of the dining halls. The professors are decent, as are the classes. The students are accepting and friendly, especially at the parties and clubs. We're known as a party school but that myth has been debunked.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I visited Ohio University for the first time, I knew it was the college I couldn’t wait to call home. The campus is a beautiful place. There are endless amounts of opportunities Ohio University offers. Opportunities to grow as not only a student but as a person as well. Ohio University offers many opportunities to allow you to be the best version of yourself you could be. With that being said, that is why I chose to attend Ohio University in this coming fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio University is a great school overall. When factoring in my rating of the school, I made sure to include everything that comes with the experience of attending the school. These things include students, faculty, staff, housing, meals, activities, and the environment around the school. I am glad I chose to attend Ohio University, as it has provided myself with the academics and faculty I need to succeed, as well as a great college experience that has allowed me to participate in different activities and clubs across campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love OU. It certainly has its problems like any university, but I cannot wait to go back to Athens, my friends, and my classes in the fall. The campus is gorgeous, and there is such a wide variety of people, majors, and activities. I am convinced that almost anyone could call Athens and OU their home as long as they are willing to seek out the groups of people and opportunities they need. I am a proud Bobcat, OU Oh yeah :)
