I definitely reccommend an apartment as soon as youre able to get one. They are expensive but totally worth it in the long run. Renting an apartment will quickly make you a more responsible person, that's for sure!

Make sure you leave a large amount of time to get to class because you will have trouble finding a spot.

Incredible Spirit – I lived about a half mile from 'The Shoe' at Ohio State, and on game day, it was insane. For men's and women's sports alike, the atmosphere was insane. Want to get involved in an intramural or club sport? Go for it. They've got anything and everything there. I was a member of the Triathlon Club, and they all got so into what they were doing that they ended up on ESPN and in national triathlon magazines for their spirit (not to mention winning the spirit award at Collegiate Nationals--actually quite coveted, strangely enough).
Long story short, sports at Ohio State are AMAZING if that's your thing. It wasn't mine, but I was one of the few who didn't go nuts for the Buckeyes.

Large Drug and Sex Problems – As someone who rushed fraternities at Ohio State, I've got to say that I'm honestly appalled with the way the gents conduct themselves, and they give fraternities a bad name. I've seen more drugging of women and rude treatment of other individuals (beyond hazing) than I care for. Huge cocaine problems exist within several fraternities, and I wouldn't get caught up in it. Entirely objectionable.
That being said, they do give back to the community a fair amount. There are a good apple or two among the thirty-some fraternities at Ohio State.

Decent Housing – Not bad dorms. North campus is nice because you get your own bathroom among you and your roommates. South is great if you have trouble meeting people because they are mostly communal baths and your doors will stay open more often. Many of the dorms are older and have their issues but for the most part OSU is like a mini city in itself and you can get anywhere and buy anything you need.

Best of the Best – Ohio State has the best of the best. Thompson library has recently been completely re-done. The RPAC is like the biggest recreation facility in the country. We have 3 Olympic size pools, a rock climbing wall, ice skating. You name it, we have it.

Be Prepared to Walk – There are a ton of dorms on campus, all around campus. But the campus is also huge so no matter what you are going to have to walk a little. If you want a dorm with lots of roommates, you should opt for something like the Morril Tower where you can have 8 roommates. Some dorms have 4 people, some have 2. Whatever you want they have. Dorms are average. Maintenance staff is pretty good for having so much to do. Be careful because different dorms cost different amounts. Move in day can be hectic with the parking situations.

Lot's of International Students – There are a lot of white students that attend here. However, Ohio State is huge and attracts students from all over the world. I've met students from all different countries. The international chinese population seems to be pretty big.

Wide Variety – There is a huge variety in the classes you can take, from tae kwon do to multivariable calculus, you really can do anything you want. Most of my professors have been really kind and I have learned a lot.

City and Regional Planning – City and Regional Planning at OSU is awesome. There is a lot of flexibility in the classes you take so you can really focus on what you want to learn. In addition to that the advisers are really great and help you achieve what you want to. The internship office is a little less effective and you are really left on your own a little, but if you are willing to press for help you will get it.

Housing Is Ok – Campus housing is pretty expensive, but the benefits are pretty good. North Campus is more luxurious with air conditioning, showers in the rooms etc. South Campus is a little more party focused, and usually has no air-conditioning. So the experience you want can be chosen by where you live.

Never Been Involved – Greek life has a relatively small effect on campus life. I know a couple people involved, but it definitely does not run the school. There are plenty of opportunities besides greek life to get involved.

The on and off campus busses run frequently and are paid for by the fees as part of going to school so you just swipe your id and ride for free on the city bus.

Ubran Meyer!! He is our new football coach and that pretty much sums it up...

Greek Life – I immediately became involved in Greek Life at OSU when I was a freshman. Doing so, it made the school full of 60,000 students feel much smaller and more comfortable. I know many more people now than I ever would've outside of Greek Life.

The Student Union – Just recently, Ohio State has completely remodeled and built the new student union. Everything you can imagine can be found within this facilty. From food to club meetings to a dance studio, a student can find almost everything needed here.

Health and Fitness – Ohio State offers many programs and facilities that helps to provide students with the opportunity to stay healthy and fit. Facilities such as the RPAC and the Jesse Owens are prime examples of this. Within the RPAC, the facility provides free group fitness classes along with healthy choices for food.
College Senior 2012-07-25T02:10:28Z
Honor Code – Ohio State takes pride in their students honoring the honor code and what it represents. If a professor even suspects a student plagerizing or cheating is involved, you are immediately reported to the university and there will be immediate action.

I have not actually gotten into my major yet but the prerequisites for my major can be challenging and the workload can be a bit much at sometimes but if you set aside the time to study and do your homework, you will be fine.
College Junior 2012-07-24T02:51:13Z
High Expectations – The professors are willing to help you if you are willing to ask them. The science classes can be difficult but they are worth it if you are willing to work at it. Professors and students are always encouraing underclassmen to ask for help if they need it.

Not That Bad – If you do something really bad, you will get punished severely but if it is something slight, then they could let you off with a warning.

I really dont go out as often. but i do it is off campus. I dont know any of my friends getting into trouble or anything like that.

Guys & Girls:
The girls and guys at my school are dope! They know how to have fun and work hard at the same time.

Decent for Now – The weather in Ohio is decent i have only been here for a few months so I havent really gotten to much info.

Not Too Bad – While there are not too many places to park without a permit, the Ohio state university provides a lot of places where you can pay and park that are in good locations relative to the popular parts of campus. The parking can get very tricky during game days though.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
