What is your overall opinion of this school?

6.5/10 - lackluster internet connectivity - less than moderate amount of diversity within both the student and faculty body - dining hall availability is spotty and you will usually be in class when you are hungry; but when you're free the dining halls will be closed - dedicated professors in teaching (depending on the level of course)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Ohio University. I believe the only frustrations I've had with the campus are some housing accommodation problems and people whose individual personalities are the only thing to blame. Athens has become a second home for me and I love it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I would say Ohio University is a very mind-boggling school because on one hand, you have the huge party scene going on the whole year, concluding with a massive FEST season through the months of March and April. On the other hand, the university is renowned for its Green School title, as well as having things like an excellent nursing and journalism program. It's definitely not your one-of-a-kind school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While applying for a school I had very few in mind, all I knew was I wanted to get out of my small town when a friend of mine told me to come to Ohio University. I had never heard of it and it was only four hours away, perfect, so I applied. Within a week I got accepted and accepted my acceptance without having set foot on the campus. As soon as I visited my school for the first time I knew I had made the right decision. The school is outside of the city surrounded by nature and a small town. It sincerely feels just like home. Once classes started I understood why everyone loves it here, the teachers are super involved and available and the students enjoy the topics and carrying on intelligent conversations. From not knowing anything about this school to becoming a sophomore, I would not do a thing differently. Once a bobcat always a bobcat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being involved in the Scripps school has been the best choice I have ever made. From the moment I stepped foot on campus I knew it would equip me with the skills I need to succeed. My first month into school I was given so many opportunities to get active in my field, and I know that I already have other opportunities ready for my next 3 years. Though Athens does not have much to do besides party at points in the year, there are plenty of other groups and teams to join that can easily keep you busy. The people here are kind and the professors genuinely care about their students for the most part. There really is opportunities for every major to get the experience they want and need.

Once you go to Athens, you'll never want to leave. I love the vibe in Athens, the kindness of all other bobcats, and the beautiful scene all over campus. The nature in Athens is one of a kind. College green is littered with beautiful trees that are breathtaking in the fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's good for what I'm needing in a school, though it is not the best around by far. The campus is beautiful and I stay clear of unsavory scenes, though going out at night is always scary regardless. The school's politics are often troublesome generally, but it is a very inclusive and friendly place, even if the way it is run doesn't seem friendly or organized.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio University has an absolutely beautiful campus, with stunning scenery and an abundance of history to accompany it. Its professors are generally helpful and want to make you succeed, yet are also sometimes difficult and hard to deal with. Moreover I believe that more often than not they have seemed to generally be more so helpful. Ohio University in the past has also been known as a party school, which also continues on into today's day and age. Alcohol and drugs also tend to be a problem, and I believe that it will continue on into the foreseeable future. Additionally, there has been a multitude of rapes that have been reported, which may make people feel unsafe at times.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If there is one thing I can definitely say about Ohio University, it is that they are extremely open to diversity. I truly believe that anyone can come to Ohio University and be able to call it home. There is a place for everyone, and regardless of what you are interested in you will be able to find people with similar passions. The area Ohio University is located in supports over 500 student organizations annually which enables every student to find their place to "fit in." When it comes to academics, I also believe Ohio University does a great job in preparing you for your career of choice. The class layout of finishing prerequisite and "tier one" requirements more in your early years of undergrad allows you to more actively pursue your major toward the end of your college career. To keep this short because I know incoming college students are not going to want to read a novel about what college they would like to go to, I can tell you this: When selecting a college, I truly feel the most important aspect is finding somewhere you will be able to call your second home. In my opinion and in the opinion of many others, Ohio University is quite the easy place to call home. Comfort is the key to happiness and, without it, you will be held back from your best academic excellence and also from enjoying the true college experience. In summary, I think any incoming student will comfortably find their second hOUme in Athens, Ohio.
