What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was originally planning on going to college out of state but in the end, I decided to stay closer to home, and I am so happy I did! I met my best friend at OU and I couldn't imagine my life without her! OU is full of amazing people and we are such a welcoming and inclusive campus! Our students at OU are a family and our alumni are great examples that once you're a Bobcat, you're always a Bobcat! We support each other and stand up for each other, always. OU has so many different, awesome clubs to join and new ones are always popping up! There is always something interesting to do on or off campus, every day of the week. If you love nature and being outside, OU is for you! Our campus is so beautiful and we are just about 30 minutes away from Hocking Hills, where everybody loves to hike and go camping! My friends and I love to take day trips there and go exploring! When it's nice outside you will see students everywhere doing tons of fun stuff! Playing sand volleyball on South Beach, hanging out in hammocks in pretty much every tree (join hammock club!), playing frisbee golf, soccer, football and even grilling out are just a few things we love to do and there's so much more! We have an amazing 5 story library that is open 24 hours and always full of students. And, a bunch of awesome coffee shops all over campus for those late nights or just a mid day "pick me up". There are always food trucks and a bunch of amazing places that deliver but Boyd market and dining hall is full of fresh fruit and veggies, salads and even smoothies! It's not too hard to avoid the freshmen 15 when you have so many healthy options! Every college is a party school in their own way and it's no secret that OU loves to have fun but that doesn't mean you have to go out and get crazy every night, or even at all. If the party scene isn't for you, there is still so much to do and so many other ways to have fun!Our academics are amazing and there are so many resources to help with your studies, like peer tutoring, study groups and most of all faculty. Ohio University is such an amazing school and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else! I 'm so excited I get to continue my college career here and it should 100% be on your list of schools to apply to!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am extremely thankful that I decided to continue my studies after high school at Ohio University. In each class that I have taken the professors have been more than willing to help each student reach his/her true potential and do his/her best in the class. One of the most important qualities about Ohio University is the amount of opportunities for internships and jobs available for after college. It is obvious the professors want the best for the students at OU and will do anything to help students be prosperous upon graduation. The Ohio University student body is a community. Everyone looks out for and supports one another. I haven't felt this at any other university that I have visited, I am beyond grateful for having the opportunity to be a Ohio University Bobcat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although Ohio University has a reputation as a "party school", it's so much more than that. I have met some of the friendliest, most helpful people ever on this campus; people genuinely want to see you succeed, whether it's fellow students or your professors. Professors are usually happy to work with students regarding any special needs or issues the student may have. I have only had excellent professors and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio University is definitely a party school and kinda of a low drug school. Housing is getting better but picking is horrible and unfair. Food is good depending on which place you go to. Professors are awesome if you choose the right ones and they are passionate to their study.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Ohio University! I live in a new dorm that has so many amenities and my sister has lived in some of the older dorms and has loved them too! The dining hall food is great! You can find something healthy or something that you might be craving. They have theme food days all the time which are always good! The professors I have had have mostly been very interesting and fair and have opened my eyes to things I have never thought about! The rec center is great and I work out there all the time! They offer tons of free fitness classes too! The campus is beautiful no matter what the season. The hills are killer on your legs but they make the campus even more beautiful. There is a great social scene! People are always looking to do something. With all the fests, free sporting events, all the clubs that are offered, and great bar scene, there is always something to do! There are local shops and restaurants that make Athens so unique! I have made so many new friends-everyone seems friendly and happy to be here!I am so happy I chose to go to Ohio University and wouldn't want to go anywhere else!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My Overall opinion of Ohio University is that is one of the best college towns in the United States. The academics at Ohio University are above average and I would say the thing that sticks out the most is the night life on campus. For a bigger campus there are plenty of things to get involved in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current student of the Honors Tutorial College at Ohio University. I love it! It is truly a unique experience in learning and also the social aspects. I never been pushed so hard academically, but the professors are always there to help. I challenge any high achieving student to come to this school for this program. You are able to skip pre-req/gen-ed classes. The learning is therefore extremely accelerated. The only thing I would recommend is to re-brand Ohio University's image. I hate the fact that we get the stigma of being a party school.

Great place to figure out who you are. Campus life is great and the people here definitely make you feel at home. No matter what you're looking for you can find a place to be while you're here. OU makes me a better person and helps me find opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Ohio university main campus. It is rich in culture and there are so many great hiking spots around not to mention the campus is beautiful. It is out in the middle of nowhere, however it is easy to get what you need. Housing is a little expensive but good quality, dining halls are average and expensive. People tend to be extremely liberal on campus and peacefully protest often. There are many clubs and organizations to join with little pressure to join Greek life. There are things the campus can improve on but overall I am having a great experience and have never heard of someone who goes to OU and hates it.
