Not Much Integration – I came from a really diverse high school, where people of all races and ethnicities interacted. I was shocked and disappointed when I came here to see the lack of interaction among different groups. It's hard to mingle among races, and feels segregated. This is my least favorite part about OSU.

The Thompson Library – The Thompson Library is great- it's huge, very quiet, really conducive to studying. I love to be here. The only drawback is it can get SUPER crowded come exam weeks, so I usually either get here really early, or stay in my apartment to study. Most days, though, it's a really great place to be.

So far, in my experiences here, the Greek life is kind of all about partying. I've had a couple run-ins with Greeks, and they're not bad people, very fun. To be honest, they're cool but it's not really like they're helping out the community or anything, except for some nice relaxation and fun.

The restaurants around OSU aren't too bad. We've got some quality comfort food (southern cooking), a ton of Greek restaurants (yummy pita), and some awesome pizza joints. Overall, the food isn't cheap, but with all the school discounts it makes it more affordable.

The dining at OSU is kind of all over the place. Don't get me wrong, there are quality places on campus to get great food, but most of the food is lacking in "organic" quality. My family is very health conscious, and my mom makes sure of that, so getting used to some of the food here really did not go well with my stomach. As long as you check the nutritional data, and make sure to AVIOD a few places, you should be able to have a pretty good food experience here at OSU. And don't get a huge meal plan cus most of them end up wasted anyways.

Fun If You Make Friends. Ohio State has so many different things going on at night. There are many bars on the main street right off campus, there are also frat parties all the time. Underage nightlife is also fun. The resident halls host fun activities usually every weekend.

There is an incredible amount of computers available at school. Printing is a bit costly, especially as a poor college student. The wireless access is usually reliable, but at times it goes out, which is very frustrating. There are so many computers on campus that there is not a need for a personal computer, but most students do have one. It is much more convenient.

Proudest School in the Land – The atmosphere around Ohio State is definitely busy. There are over 1000 activities going on daily. Students, staff and the community surrounding Ohio State are the proudest people I have ever encountered. We love our sports, our band, our school, and our city. Ohio State is an incredibly safe, friendly and welcoming school.

Some Scholarship – There is a good amount of scholarships offered. Some of the merit scholarships are based on your ACT/SAT scores and your rank in high school.

Strong Fan Support – The students of the Ohio State University are very school spirited. We always support and cheer on our teams. We are like one big family when it comes to football games.

Buses Are Great – Buses are all over if you dont feel like walking. Most classes are at a maximum of a 15 minute walk away though. The campus is organized nicely

Not Bad – The campus food is actually pretty good. It gets a little tiring after a while, but what kind of campus food doesnt. The school makes improvements for campus dining all the time

Everybody loves the buckeyes. Football and basketball games are awesome. The mirror lake jump is probably the greatest event ever. You have to do it

Mine Is a Bit Easier – My program is not as hard to get into as others. I am a Sports & Leisure Studies major with a track in Sport Leadership & Hummanities. You need a 2.5 GPA at OSU to get into the program, however, the graduate school masters program is harder to get into
College Junior 2012-02-01T22:08:41Z
It's up to You – Obviously there is a lot of use of drugs and alcohol just like any other college campus. As long as you are not walking around campus with open containers you are usually fine. A lot of other things to do on campus if you are not into drugs/alcohol, easy to avoid it if you want to.
College Junior 2012-02-01T22:05:40Z
LARH Is the Best – I live in Lane Avenue Residense Hall, It's great because the rooms are really big and you have your own bathroom. Only down side is that it is a little far from things. Some of the older dorms on south campus have really small rooms and shared bathrooms, overall they are okay.

I am in a group called Buckeyes for Canines and it is really fun if you like dogs. We volunteer together occasionally and hold meeting with specifics topics almost every week. Sometimes guest speakers will come in as well.

I am never really paying real close attention to how people treat each other, but i see many different people, with different religions and i hear different languages, and nobody really seems to mind.

Pre-Vet/Animal Science Major – The teachers are more than willing to help you, and there are certain fun classes however sometimes the work load can be overbearing and stressful due to all the sciences.

The Ohio State University is a very special place filled with diversity and tremendous learning opportunities. I have simply loved all of my professors, who are extremely well qualified. The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable.

If it is very cold it makes getting around on campus alot harder, but bearable.

The Greek influence is felt in a relatively small way on OSU campus. Those members are friendly and fit in well with the general student population,

High St – Take a walk down high st any night in the summer and you'll find a party easy...or any of the side streets as well. Easy to get into the party scene and forget school work. But I wouldn't recommend doing so.

Many Options to Choose from – From McDonald's to cheap Chinese, there is always something within walking distance. Adriadico's pizza is AH-mazing and who wouldn't want a burrito the size of your head from La Bomba's after a hard day of classes and studying.

So Many Options, So Little Time! Academically, Ohio State offers many major and minor options to choose from, including a fantastic exploration program which sets undecided students up to work closely with advisors to explore all majors and decide which would be best for them! Ohio State also has multiple libraries that are open very late on weekdays and some 24/7. They also offer free tutors and learning centers available to all students whenever they need.
Students also have access to a health clinic on campus and have 10 free sessions with a university psychologist if ever needed. There is an excellent campus bus system that can take students anywhere on campus and anywhere in Columbus. There is a never a bored moment for a student who understands the bus system and can get to any club, party, museum and restaurant in Columbus. Students can also be highly involved with campus group or spend their time at the on campus recreational facilities working out, playing intramural sports, or joining a group fitness class!
The most exciting and unique thing about Ohio State comes in autumn quarter: football! Yes, most schools have football, but at Ohio State football games spread an amazing sense of joy and pride throughout the entire campus. On game days, the entire campus is flooded with our school colors from students, alumni, and just plain old fans who come from all over to experience the amazing thrill of being at an Ohio State football game!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
