Ohio University-Main Campus Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?


The vibe here is so much more different than anywhere else I've been. This school has a feel that is strangely unique and very familiar. The pace is slower and it's more difficult to feel rushed here, which I think is a very good thing.


The best thing about Ohio University are the resources available to students for degree auditing, academic advising, and tutoring for continued academic success.


I love the small town setting of Athens. I grew up in Cincinnati, where the people are generally not as friendly and there are not as many natural surroundings. There are plenty of outdoor, community, and university activities to choose from. It is generally very laid-back here as well.


The best thing about my school would be the possible relationships that a student is able to build with their professors. The professors for the mosr part are very open minded and are willing to take the time to get to know a student and then when it's time, they will write reccomendations for jobs and graduate school.


The best thing about my school is that I know by getting my degree here, I will have no problem in finding a job after graduate school. For jobs in journalism, physical therapy, medicine, buisness students are given an advantage because these type employers specifically look for Ohio University students .


The Scripps College of Communication I consider the best thing about my school because it is one of the strongest communication programs in the nation. The various schools within the college can hold their own, which further strengthens the program and allows the program to attract the best students. Best part, tons of hands on experience in and out of the classroom make this communications program the best thing about OU.


The small town atmosphere. The hills and the trees are absolutely beautiful in the fall andI love the brick streets and buildings. It feeds small town comfort while still providing diversity within a larger community of students.

Beautiful campus, hundrends of student and community organizations, good art school, good journalism school, and great local town not far from hiking, camping, etc.
