Transportation is good, and almost always available. The only problem is that there could be more. There are so many people at OSU so it makes buses very crowded.

There are A LOT of parties, but also a lot of police enforcement (especially during football season).

DANGER DANGER...if you are a female it can be pretty scary living off-campus. Keep your pepper spray handy.

There are many options just around the area of Grandview and UA that are unique to the area, but there are also chains if you like to play it safe. All you need is a friend with a car!

Great attention given to each student in my program.

There are many options and possibilities for students.

On the Columbus campus it is like one big melting pot and you can meet all kinds of people in just a short stay.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T22:09:20Z
Like most colleges at night, you can find multiple parties going on, some drunk people, maybe even a fight, but for the most part people are just happy and respectful.

OSU does pay to print, so printing anywhere is a hassle. Most places to print require that you have money on your BuckID to swipe and pay, but the Union takes cash, credit, or your BuckID. Most of the time people are on a computer printing or looking something up, but usually students have their own laptops and are using the computer for a quick print.

Financial Aid is nice, but can be a painful process to go through. I would say that a decent amount is dished out, but it could also be better. There are a lot, and I mean a lot, of students who need it so I can understand if it gets hectic and all our needs can't be met. To get the best, I would say to keep that GPA up up up and take care of financial aid in person.

Columbus is huge and there are so many different people to meet. It may be a lot to take in at times, but most often, people are friendly and welcoming, especially the students! I have never seen so many happy people in one place. Walking through the oval, you see a new face every day and have the chance to make a new friend.

There is a lot to do, especially on High Street. Most nightlife is for students 21+. Although, there are bars and clubs that allow 18+ in. Since there is a large number of students that attend OSU, there are always house parties, and most are friendly enough to let in a few straggling passerby's. Walking may seem like a burden, but it's quite fun.

Health & Safety:
I usually feel very safe on campus, but I don't like it when they beef up security on jay walking.

The cost of the parking pass is average and there are always spots in the lots and a shuttle is by every 10-15 minutes to take you where you need to go.

There are a variety of options for off-campus housing at OSU including a variety of apartments and houses. Lots get rented very quickly so those looking to live off-campus should begin their search in the fall the year before. They can get kind of expensive depending on proximity to campus and realtor, though there are many relatively inexpensive options available (especially if you're willing to live farther away from campus).
College Sophomore 2013-07-29T02:41:37Z
There is a good variety of food chains as well as local options

Guys & Girls:
There are obviously exceptions, but I feel like most people don't really care about what they look like and don't put much effort into it for the most part. There are also some good looking people but not the majority
College Sophomore 2013-07-29T02:32:24Z
Varsity sports are taken very seriously and get all students involved
College Junior 2013-07-28T18:04:58Z
There are tons of parties during the year that are a lot of fun. And campus is right across from High Street, which is lined with bars that are good for the older crowd, there are just a ton of options. Some are not 21 and up, which is helpful for my younger friends too.

Health & Safety:
I personally don't feel unsafe on campus. Sometimes it's hard to get a ride from Student Safety Services when I want one, though, because there are so many students and not that many cars. And walking alone can be scary at night because I live off campus, but there are usually so many people around that I feel secure.

Ohio State is surrounded by many Columbus neighborhoods to explore. There's always something going on in the Short North Arts District or downtown. There are so many restaurants, concerts, places to shop and things to do. It's hard to be bored here.
College Junior 2013-07-25T17:05:10Z
The weather is very unpredictable. It snows alot during the winter months and rains in the summer and spring. Classes are rarely cancelled. Students enjoy the nice and warm weather by spending their time outside in the Oval.
College Junior 2013-07-25T17:02:45Z
There are lots of varieties for students. Students can choose from tacos to
mediterrannean platters as well as noodles and pasta. My favorite place to go eat is Chipotle. It's healthy and delicious!

Absolutely wonderful. Every school will have bad professors who give too high of a workload, but there are very great professors at OSU. There is a large variety of classes, many more than surrounding schools. While there are basic requirements for some classes you have to take (as with every school), it is possible to make your schedule very personalized.

Some dorms are starting to age and deteriorate in quality. However, OSU is beginning to redo many of these older buildings and update them. Even though I lived in an older building for my time living on campus, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Campus offers many activities within individual dorms and attempts to unite those within the community. I felt like I had a very strong bond with those within my dorm and especially on my floor. Housing is a bit expensive however, so the grade is lowered because of this aspect.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
