I local atmosphere is very upbeat and vibrant. It works for me as a school but for living after school it is not for me I am more of a country girl.
College Sophomore 2013-10-31T02:26:31Z
I do not tend to go to the bars or clubs or any of the parties.

Health & Safety:
On campus I feel pretty safe but once off of campus over by the book store I dont feel very safe. I would rather constantly travel in a group.
College Sophomore 2013-10-31T02:15:21Z
They have been very helpful and have shown me who I am and who I want to me. It has kept my close to my family and friends at home and given me so many options with activities and jobs and organizations.

Guys & Girls:
At osu there are many different kinds of guys from preepy to down to earth, and athletic to nerdy. Guys are most interested in getting girls and going to parties.
College Sophomore 2013-10-31T02:09:33Z
The drug and alcohol isnt bad ON campus but as soon as you cross the street its party central. There are parties every night even on week nights.
College Sophomore 2013-10-31T02:07:08Z
Campus parking cost so much. Its bad enough when you already commute and have to pay for gas there and back but also have to pay so much money to just pull into a parking spot is crazy! Also in order to get a spot you have to get there like an hour before if you want to get a spot and still try to make it class on time.
College Sophomore 2013-10-31T02:03:40Z
The cops seem very nice and laid back as long as you are respectful and abide by the rules. The like to keep the campus safe.

People here in Columbus are a lot friendlier than folks back home in Boston! Everyone is proud of the university it's pretty amazing. There's just a great sense of community even though our campus is so big. I love it.
College Freshman 2013-10-29T07:05:48Z
You simply don't need a car here. The campus buses are awesome. COTA, which is free with your BUCK ID, also gives you access to all the interesting stuff in Columbus. Easton is a good shopping location but it does take approximately 1 hour each way by bus.
College Freshman 2013-10-29T07:03:21Z
I don't know that much about it yet but there are tons of social AND professional frats/sororities. You don't feel left out if you're not in one though, it just seems like an added layer of community.

As an out-of-state student it ended up being cheaper for me to go here than to my home state university. The national buckeye scholarship is pretty easy to get. They did a great job with helping me get loans and handling my external scholarships.

Freshmen are required to live on campus. Some dorms are really nice and school just renovated many of its dorms, so in general, they are nicer now.
College Senior 2013-10-28T02:06:56Z
If you're 21+, there are many bars around campus for you. They normally have specials on weekdays and people love hanging out in bars on weekend nights. Football Saturdays are crazy here. For people under 21, there are bars downtown that let underage people in and there are many house parties around from thursday-saturday.
College Senior 2013-10-28T02:04:34Z
The football team here is great. Many opportunities in intramurals and club teams. People are really into workouts and the gym facilities here are fantastic.

I'm from Chicago originally, and I just hate Ohio weather. In Philadelphia we can get four season in just one day. The temperature is always all over the place. In Chicago if the new says one thing it's usually stays in that range. Ohio state is unpredictable.
College Sophomore 2013-10-26T14:58:06Z
OSU is a huge campus, which leds to a huge diversity. I have seen almost every ethnic group walking around campus. Even though most of the students are white rich kids, there are still many events that celebrate others races and groups of people. It's not as equality diverse as I would like, But I'm still a proud Buckeye.
College Junior 2013-10-24T14:38:40Z
Restaurants are very interesting and very school spirited, which I like. However, some of the prices are a little expensive. My favorite place to go is Chumley's. I love the atmosphere and the food is incredible! They cater to many different types of people, and have a great selection of beer. I always try new ones every time I go!
College Sophomore 2013-10-24T13:35:20Z
Parking on campus can be stressful. To get a good spot, come early, but there are plenty of parking lots. The parking garage fees can add up, if you use those. There aren't many cheap close by parking spaces though.
College Sophomore 2013-10-24T13:29:30Z
For most of the majors, you will have to have a certain GPA before they even let you in. Not to mention prerequisites that need to be completely before you even think about declaring that major. To get into your college, it's a headache. They base it on your GPA and your course and other things. It's tough, but if you do what you need to, you'll be okay.
College Sophomore 2013-10-24T13:22:28Z
There is always places to go to study, there are many places where you can go to just hang out and relax. If you're hungry, there are tons of choices to pick from and many are just a couple minutes to get to. Great library spaces and awesome facilities. You're bound to find a place you like, a club to join, meet new people, and have a good time.
College Sophomore 2013-10-24T13:20:07Z
This school provides so many opportunities for you to get involved and join student clubs and other activities. If you're willing and have time, they're definitely something to get into. We have an abundance of clubs/organizations in many varieties, it's not likely you won't find something you like.
College Sophomore 2013-10-24T13:15:59Z
Ohio State is very serious in their students' GPAs. If you're falling behind definitely see your TAs for help or your professor. You don't want to fall too behind because before you know it, you'll be playing catch-up and that is not fun. It's a tough university to be at and very competitive.
There are many social events that you can attend, but be warned there will be many consequences if you get caught doing anything illegal! Have yet to experience this, but have heard some stories.
College Freshman 2013-10-19T22:56:14Z
Small, not very clean. North Campus is not a nice place to live.
College Freshman 2013-10-19T22:55:43Z
The drug scene is not really big but it depends on who you hang out with.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
