I haven't seen much drug usage, although certain housing you can clearly smell it. Concerning alcohol it's like cops have given up.

I have a meal plan, but every now and then I like to eat out, and there is always something or somewhere new to try.

There are plenty of off-campus housing options that are fairly priced. Most off-campus housing is close to campus and therefore, not an inconvenience.

The campus buses come frequently and travel all around campus. The COTA buses also go all around Columbus and are free to OSU students.

From my experience at OSU, there aren't n abundance of drugs on campus. Many people smoke cigarettes but that's all I've witnessed.

Health & Safety:
There are emails that go out every so often with safety concerns as well as updates on recent crimes to help students prepare. OSU is very well lit which also drives down crime. I do believe, however, that the columbus police department should be more worried with suspicious criminal activity in the outskirts of off campus housing than with the parties happening near campus as those are not the real danger. Also, there is a safety services department that acts as a taxi for students that do not want to go home alone at night.

The diversity on campus, especially during the summer months, is extremely noticable. Sometimes as a caucasian student, I believe I am the minority! It's wonderful having so many people from different parts of the world, or even from the same areas with different upbringings. Religously, my inner group of friends spans everything from Hindu to Buddhist to Orthodox and Agnostic, but everyone has respect for eachother's personal beliefs, as we do with sexual orientation. I also believe my group of friends could accurately describe THE Ohio State University as a whole

I have yet to get an internship. It is actually difficult.
College Sophomore 2013-06-24T02:11:30Z
I would definatley choose OSU over and over again.

You can really do whatever you want as long as you are not bothering everyone.

There always seems to be construction going on. I hate that but it is a beautiful campus. Alot of kids. alot of different places to live.
College Sophomore 2013-06-23T12:38:25Z
there is so much to do, places to go. The campus is like a large city in itself. You can't be bored here.

Just had a great opportunity to attend a forensics field school...it was awesome. I learned a lot and made some great connections for the future.

I was only offered 1 scholarship opportunity from the university, which I did not win. Hence, I receive no money from the university at all.

Health & Safety:
I feel safe on OSU's campus, but I know for a fact: people steal bikes, people steal computers and unattended belongings. And there have been quite a few muggings on the streets around campus and where a lot of student housing is, despite claims of increased campus policing at night. I don't feel especially safe at night, due to the big city and the actuality of crime within it, but OSU tries, complete with little emergency stations all around campus.

It's not a perfect system and some people with unfortunate financial backgrounds can get lost in the shuffle, as in real life. However, setting up an appointment to meet with a financial aid adviser here can be extremely helpful, and if you plead your case, you could be awarded up to $3,000 if necessary to help you attend your next year. There are also a number of options to earn scholarships all around campus.

Greek life can help you receive recognition from others in Greek life, but generally isn't very important at Ohio State by itself. Often they are simply just seen as party students, while there are some outliers who are known to be more productive members of society, and largely, Greek housing takes up a few streets off-campus.

Varsity sports are a great source of income for the University. However, being a club sport member it is unfortunate that we do not get any benefits form the university especially NO funds whatsoever. Some sports are only club and will never reach varsity status and it is unfair to those students who are members of those clubs.

When it is hot, it's hot. Same with the cold in the winter. Lots of time spent outside walking around campus. But there is a campus bus service for when it is raining or just too cold to walk.

Depending on your major, you may see a very diverse student body. In the engineering majors we see many different ethnicities and backgrounds.

Columbus has pretty much anything and everything you could ever want to eat! There is such a great diversity of cultures in Columbus that really helps to contribute to the variety of food available. Price ranges vary from cheap college kid prices to super pricey food, but it all tastes good! Almost anything you want is within walking distance from campus or easily accessible from the bus line. One place I would definitely check out is Bodega. It has a really cool vibe. It's a sit down restaurant, and prices are about average ($7-$15), and the food is excellent!

I will start my program in International Studies this fall, so as of yet I am unsure how difficult it will be to get through the program. But, aside from not having any experience in the program yet, I have talked to many different advisers who have a degree in International Studies. The advisers have been very encouraging about the major and have made me excited for the many different possibilities for different jobs when I graduate.

Health & Safety:
We get emails about different crimes that happen around campus in order to keep us up to date on the information. Students can always call campus security to drive them somewhere on campus or if they are feeling unsafe. I usually do not feel unsafe on campus but it changes a little when you go farther off campus.

There are many clubs on high street that people can go to in order to hangout with friends and have some fun. There are certain days of the week that people 18 and over are allowed into the club so make sure you know what days you can go to the different clubs.
College Junior 2013-06-05T19:14:37Z
The rpac on campus is awesome and is a great place to work out or play sports with your friends. There are many libraries on campus that are great for students to spend as much time needed to study at any time. The oval is a place for everyone to hangout between or after classes. This is where people play frisbee, bring their dogs, suntan, and meet new friends.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
