good campus, but not much to do, below average in almost every category, facilities are old and outdated, housing is abysmal and hard to live in, little to no focus on academics by students, huge alcohol, drug, and party scene in town and around it, but good class to professor ratios and some people are fighting to change whats wrong with Ohio university

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio University is home to not just me but every bobcat, no matter what campus you are at. The sense of community and acceptance is beyond remarkable. I could not imagine going to another university. The thought of possibly not being able to return next semester, due to lack of funds, breaks my heart. Home will always be home but Athens Ohio will always be hOUme.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The first thing that strikes you is the campus. It is absolutely gorgeous! The mature trees and classic architecture make even the shortest walk feel like a form of recreation. Once you get into the life of a student you realize how much support is available. There is never a reason to feel lost or helpless. They make study groups fun and effective. The clubs and organizations have something for everyone. Instead of searching for one place to belong, you have to narrow down the opportunities due to the limited hours in a day! Ohio University is home!

Ohio University, is a gem in the state of Ohio, move over Ohio State, OU is the place to be. From supportive professors to a bustling night life, there is always something going on. People are so friendly and genuine. There is also something for everyone and anyone to partake in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Like anyplace, Ohio University has its charms as well as its shortcomings. But overall it is a place that you can make your home. People hailing from all walks of life; each with their unique talents, desire, interest, and fears. The one thing that binds my 23,000 classmates and I is our excitement to call Ohio University's campus home. My professed enthusiasm to be attending Ohio University shouldn't be taken to mean that everything is perfect. There are professors that don't care enough in classes that are too large. There are students who bring to campus with them hate and intolerance. There are moments in which I wish I could escape campus. But I can't escape OU because OU is my home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio University has one of the most beautiful and historic campus in the whole country. It is the first college founded in Ohio, which is very attractive to me. I love areas that have history and stories to them, there's always more you can learn about this campus. I am beyond excited to start here in the fall semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If I could assign Ohio University one singular cliché phrase, it would be "work hard, play hard". It is no secret that Ohio is a party school; the Halloween block party organized by the city of Athens (affectionately known as "HallOUween") is one of the largest in the nation. While there is plenty of drinking and partying to be found, I have met some of the most driven, accomplished young adults at Ohio. With over 500 student organizations, students have plenty of opportunities to work hard and find their passions outside of the classroom. Professors at Ohio want students to learn, and make the effort to be available, even if their class size exceeds 100 students. The university also provides students with many resources to find internship and job openings. I have had a wonderful experience as a Bobcat so far and I cannot wait to see what the rest of my time at Ohio University will bring me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am going to be a student in the fall and I can truly say that I am extremely excited. Ohio University has showed me that it is the best fit for home away from home. The people I have met are amazing and I can't wait to become closer with them in the fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A classic college town OU offers a lot to most of the students coming here. Sadly it has a bad party reputation and somewhat average academics. Like most state schools expect no diversity and a very homogenous population.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely adore Ohio University. Our campus is beautiful and easy to fall in love with. Students constantly refer to Athens as their 'hOUme' due to how comfortable and infatuated they are. Academics are extremely important to students who attend, and all the professors I have had throughout my freshman year were nothing but helpful. I lived in the renovated dorms this past year, so I had it good with my living situation- where not all freshman may be as lucky. There is not much to complain about when it comes to Ohio University besides the difficulty of finding a last minute outfit in Athens, Ohio!
