What is your overall opinion of this school?

For non-traditional students, OU is abysmal. The area is certainly focused on traditional undergraduates with a penchant for the party scene. The campus is very nice and packs a great deal into a small area without feeling cramped. The buildings are all brick, many have pillars and getting around is very easy. Athens may be a shock to the systems of those that hail from larger cities, but they have a lot packed in here. Housing around the campus is precisely what you'd expect in a party school town, but there are decent accommodations if you're willing to expand you're search radius by a few miles. Be warned that rental prices take full unabashed advantage of supply and demand. If you see a good price, look closer. That price is likely "per person". 2 bedroom apartments charge more "per person" than my mortgage payment on my house in a larger city in Northern Ohio. They know that you're stuck in the middle of nowhere and they profit from it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio University is a large school that feels small in a quaint city of Ohio known for it's hills, it quirkiness, and it's beauty. It is a school that provides many opportunities, though they can be hard to seek out since it is a larger school. The overall campus feel is friendly although there is some racial and otherwise social tension at times. It generally is safe, though sexual assault is one of our larger issues in that area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus itself is gorgeous. Everything is within walking distance and pretty easy to get to. Everyone is friendly and always helpful. The teachers really try their hardest to make everyone feel welcome and are available to help most of the time. The overall atmosphere is very pleasant and I would recommend the school to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was not really loving it here in the beginning but once I started getting my involved in things and making friends it turned it completely around. I was going to transfer next year but have met some truly amazing people that make the whole experience so much better. I could not imagine going anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio University has been the greatest thing to happen in my life. The staff here is helpful, enthusiastic, and willing to put your needs over theirs. Many of the students are just the same. I have yet to see a campus that has the resources or looks this campus does.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the Ohio University-Main Campus is more than satisfied. I have never met so many genuinely kind people in one place before. My favorite part about this campus is that students can be undeniably who they are, without any judgement whatsoever. With that being said, I cannot be talking about my opinion of Ohio University-Main Campus without mentioning the AMAZING food here. From Courtside pizza, to Big Mama's Burritos, to chicken & waffles and the food trucks, all the way to my personal favorite; Bagel Street Deli. Sadly, my wallet is definitely starting to feel the effect of my constant attendance at the awesome restaurants. I would also like to point out that there are twenty-two bars within a two mile radius on this campus, and that EVERY STUDENT definitely waits until they are twenty-one years of age to even think about stepping foot in one of those twenty-two alcohol-infused establismetnts. (Sike....sorry mom). In my first semester at this unbelievable school, I have found my own independence. I have also made some of my best friends in the short amount of time that I have been here. Ohio University is so much more than just my school, it is my home.

I love it ! It's where I belong. I've meant life long friends and will receive an excellent education! I've joined Greek life and have done many activities that have made me a person person. The campus is beautiful and well maintained. My professors have been very engaged in my classes. I would recommend Ohio University!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's amazing. Once a bobcat, always a bobcat. It's a huge family and I love every second. I never want to leave. They have something for everyone. If you don't drink, they have Sober Bobcats and super fun activities. They have an amazing gym and three amazing dining halls. The people are so nice and everyone is always willing to help a fellow bobcat! OU, oh yeah!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ohio University is like Disney World but for college students. There are so many opportunities presented as well as a great nightlife. The students and faculty make the campus very welcoming to not only visitors but the "townies" as well. No matter your style, you'll fit in here at OU. I could not have chosen a better school to further my education. I am very proud to be a Bobcat!
