The Computer Labs are average. They are all equipped with numerous computers but it is a large campus with a lot of students so around finals times it is really crowded.

Some of the areas are a bit dated, but they are working on making lots of improvements, especially with energy efficiency. I love being able to walk a few blocks and get to stores, restaurants, etc. Love running into President Gee here, there, and everywhere!

Love everything about OSU...the energy, Buckeye spirit, friendliness. It's an awesome experience to be part of it all.

So many options and so little time. The only reason why this isn't a A+ is because it can be sometime expensive.
College Sophomore 2013-01-18T01:51:45Z
It's good, but the upperclass men don't like freshman at bars. So i'd advise freshman to just go to parties. Music is better plus it's easier to socialize.

Health & Safety:
I always hear about people getting robbed. it is big campus and it is hard to keep every place safe. I never got robbed but it is always scary because at night, there are so many places that people might hide and attack me. It is good thing that we have stands which has emergency button everywhere in campus and it makes me feel safer.

I always heard story about accidents around campus. some people got hit by a truck or get robbed around the campus. it is pretty big campus and i'm sure that it is hard to keep every place safe. also, i see people who always talking about drinking in the dorm and i hate drinking. even my roommate have alcohols in my dorm and i'm scared that when they caught, they might blame on me.

Parking permits are pretty expensive but there are some off-campus spots available

I'm currently about to get into the Fisher program, i have heard it is very competitive and over looming workload, the overall building space of the college is very modern and exciting to go there
College Sophomore 2013-01-14T08:09:20Z
Just take this: we have one of the best sports centers in the nation.
College Sophomore 2013-01-14T08:01:10Z
The Computers in Ohio State are slow, but the network is really fast, including the wireless. And that's enough!
College Sophomore 2013-01-14T07:54:43Z
I am now a freshman and there is no space for freshman to park.
But seniors told me that situation will change in the future.
College Senior 2013-01-13T17:06:28Z
I am in the Masters program for Occupational Therapy and I love it! Some of the professors are a bit unorganized due to the recent change to semesters, but we are getting so much hands on/practical experience that many other programs do not get early on! I would definitely recommend the program to others because we are really learning how to be well rounded OTs. I feel like I am really being set up for success in my program.
College Senior 2013-01-13T17:00:48Z
I did my undergrad at University of Illinois and I can definitely say parking is better at OSU than U of I, but it's still not perfect. I have a C pass which is what most students can get and if you get to the closer campus lots any time after 9am, it's almost impossible to find a spot! There are lots of buses that take people from the farther lots to the main part of campus, but it's still a pain in the butt. There is also a lot of meter parking, but if you're on campus for a good chunk of the day, it sucks to have to pay so much for parking.

Off-campus housing can turn out to be a lot cheaper than living on-campus.
The main problems people come across is transportation and who they want to live with in the apartment.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T18:05:41Z
The university and city have a fairly safe transportation system. The dorms are sometimes empty as people party and socialize but everything is typically safe. People just have to keep their wits about them.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T18:01:10Z
Ohio state has a fair number of students who are first or second generation immigrants. Some of them are actually here, while their parents are in their home country.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T17:58:26Z
Ohio State is very serious about academic honesty, which isn't bad. I personally don't drink because I'm underage, however I do know quite a few people who do with little punishment because they are careful when they drink. Organizers and counselors definitely encourage social activities which is nice.
College Sophomore 2013-01-11T14:18:32Z
Rooms are way too small, and old. In many cases, the beds cannot be un-bunked. Lighting isn't the best. The air/heating isn't controlled by students, so you're either too hot or too cold.
College Junior 2013-01-09T20:29:42Z
I, myself, don't approve of or take part in the drug culture. However, smoking is very prevalent at Ohio State. Most of my friends smoke pot and some kids I know are into heavier drugs as well.
College Junior 2013-01-09T20:26:03Z
Free on-campus bussing is always readily available.
College Junior 2013-01-08T20:09:27Z
Health & Safety:
We have our own police dept on campus, so we're fairly well off. It's the off campus areas that need better patrolling sometimes.
College Junior 2013-01-08T20:06:46Z
Alcohol is particularly prevalent in the off campus areas and around campus on football game days, but really it sticks to the off campus bars most of the rest of the time. Drugs are not a part of campus life, except in the shadier off campus areas
College Senior 2013-01-08T02:03:05Z
The dorms are strict if you are loud and get caught but it is pretty easy to get away with drinking if you keep it quiet. Off campus I have had the police come once and it was easy to get out the back door and not get in trouble.

Greek Life on campus is not a must like it can be at other schools but if you do join you will not regret it. Do not believe the stereotypes that sororities and fraternities are just rich children paying for friends because it is not. You meet people that you will be friends with for the rest of your life as well as people that will support you in a time of need. I was diagnosed with a condition called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome which severely limits the daily activities down to even getting out of bed due to debilitating fatigue, extremely high heart beat among others. The girls in my sorority kept me company while in the hospital as well as making sure I was happy and comfortable while being 3000 miles from family. Joining greek life was the best decision.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
